There's not many unwithered flowers left in my parents' beautiful garden, but I got a couple of nice shots of the remaining ones in the evening sun yesterday.


It's always so peaceful and lovely going home to the island I'm from, like I did yesterday - right after work in the town where I live (2,5 hours from here.)


A lovely thing to take the camera and dogs out in the garden to enjoy the evening sun, after watching several family members gutting fish after longline fishing ツ

"P" (pot-of-gold - the flower) 2011 A-Z Challenge

Coreopsis verticillata - These flowers are growing in our flower garden in Carmel,NY. We call them 'Church

Flowers' because we got them at a church sale. This plant is rarely damaged by deer.


Coreopsis verticillata is a North American species of tickseed in the sunflower fammily. It is found primarily in the east-central United States, from Maryland south to Georgia, with isolated populations as far west as Oklahoma and as far north as Québec and Ontario. It is an herbaceous perennial that grows 2–3 ft (1–1 m) tall and about 2 ft (1 m) wide, although as it spreads laterally by rhizomes,this width can be exceeded. The stems are wiry.The flower heads are up to 2 in (51 mm) across, and both the disc florets and ray florets are bright yellow. The flowers are produced abundantly in clusters from midsummer to fall.




threadleaf coreopsis

From last year's garden - a bloom on the Threadleaf Coreopsis

Missing a few petals after a heavy rain.

Yakfur got to it first.


Otherwise I would have likely never found it, as I did not expept anything to be flowering in that area right now. This is a new species for me. I'm not sure if it just popped up in that location this year, or if it was there last year and I overlooked it.


There is a little patch of these plants growing right along the trail in a good quality rocky upland woods with a lot of Ericaceae family members. That was definitely not the type of habitat that I expected to find a flower that looked like this, near some Comandra umbellataa and a nice Vaccinium stamineum which had almost no fruit last year, but this year is full of still unripe fruit. The Digital Atlas of the Virginia Flora describes as a typical habitat for them, "dry open forests... primarily in acidic soils" though, which makes me think it's not an escape, although my first thought was that it might be, since this species is frequently found in cultivation. If it is an escape, it's the good kind, since it's native and it's not a weird cultivar. If people planted more native species, it would do a great deal to mitigate the habitat fragmentation issue.

I focused on the greenery by accident, but I like how this came out anyway.

"Golden Shower" Threadleaf Coreopsis

This is a patch of flowers at the back gate, looking so special in the slanted light. They look sorta sad and hot in the afternoon. Angle and light make all the difference.

Coreopsis verticillata - 7-20-09

The Prickly Pear Cactus bloom after the rain.

Part of the "yellow" section of my backyard, the native threadleaf coreopsis, var. 'Zagreb.' Nice to see them in full flower finally.

Here's a coreopsis jungle in my garden, glowing like gold in the evening light.
