Sunny In The Rain


Shrubby Cinquefoil - Dasiphora fruticosa - Ölandstok

This flowery shrub, ~1 m tall, is one of the plants that still bring colour to this time of year, shining like little suns even in the rain. The flowers are small, but they are many.

The Swedish name is connected to the island Öland, off our East coast.

I just love your description of these little flowers, it is so true!!! I have heard of these, but never seen them! Beautiful picture!

I can never get my Shrubby Cinquefoil to produce lots of flowers together. It always just has the odd flower on - very disappointing. Yours looks great.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
