Horticultural snapshots

… well, not exactly “snapshots,” since the images were all done with stacked focus.

Nigella bucharica

This little nigella couldn’t catch a break this year. A mole took out most of the plants, and thunderstorms pounded the survivors onto the ground. I rinsed off the flower as best I could, but it’s still rather gritty.

Turbinicarpus lophophoroides
Stapelia flavopurpurea

Succulent seedlings at about six weeks.
