Star light, star bright 

Tiny star with petals white

“Star Baby” (Star-of-Bethlehem, Ornithogalum umbellatum) Nikon D300, 105mm F/2.8G Macro w/3-ring Extension Tube Set, F/9, 1/30s, -0.3EV, ISO 640

With all my heart, with all my might 

I wish my baby were home tonight. 😦



  1. This one makes me sad. I lost so my plants last year for a reason I will not name on the internet, anyways this is one that I am very fond of and have yet to replace.

    • This one makes me sad, too. It’s hard when half your heart is across the globe. 😦

      I’m sorry you lost plants. I find these growing wild all over our landscape. Very under-appreciated flowers! I hope you get them back. 🙂

  2. Babe – I wish I was home too. Love you lots.

  3. OK, if he comes back and tells you he loves you most, tell him you love him mostest! 😉
    So sorry you have to miss each other… just a few more days (right?)

    Love these little flowers, we find a few of these in our yard every spring, too.

    • Ha! Yes! Let’s make it a competition! 🙂

      Just got off of video conference with him. He is okay, work is going well, but he is exhausted. We are just praying the volcano doesn’t erupt so he can get back home late Tuesday!

      Thanks you, Michaela! We seem to have all sorts of small wild flowers in our landscape. Many of them white. I actually meant to photograph starflowers! I now have to go back out and find where those are.

  4. Hey, it’s good to see that the nice weather’s bringing out some amazing plants and flowers such as this. 🙂

    And also, I hope he’s home soon, really!

    Love and Christingles,

    • Thank you, Nap! We have had some AMAZING weather the past week – no complaints! 🙂 I hope this is merely a hint at what an awesome summer we have in store!

      Yeah, me too. 😦 Thanks – much appreciated! 😀

  5. That’s one pretty cool little flower to have growing wild in your area… and great light too in this shot… It stands out so perfectly against that dark backdrop…

    • Isn’t it? We’ve got a whole slew of wild stuff that pops up here and there. I’ve really been trying to notice them more these days – gives my 105mm a workout! 🙂

      Thanks, Brian! 🙂

  6. and two posts ago you said you weren’t a poet.

  7. Beautiful shot Tracy, wow 🙂
