Dianthus barbatus

This was one of my favorite plants from this year’s Spring flowers. With a common name of “Sweet William,” this Dianthus is native to Southern Europe and parts of Asia. This particular variety was called “Dash Magician Dianthus,” if I remember correctly.

Bracteantha

This is a neat little flower that is commonly called the “straw flower.” It looks and feels like paper, and even after it is long-dead, the bloom retains its shape and most of its color, much like dried straw.

I work for a wholesale floriculture grower in NC, and a while back I took my camera to the greenhouses and had some fun! I’ll be posting various pictures from the greenhouses over the next little while. I’ll try to be posting more frequently.

Roses are Reddish

Did you know that you can tonemap single images in Photomatix? It’s a pretty neat function. This image I actually took a while back with my father’s Canon Rebel, which has since been stolen. That’s why I use a Sony now!
