Confessions of a Blatant Bloom-a-holic.

Confessions of a Blatant Bloom-a-holic.


Hello, my name is Wanda Kubat-Nerdin. I am a Bloom-a-holic. A Blatant Bloom-a-holic.


Here is my testimony:

Their blooming scent, vibrant colors and exquisiteness are intoxicating, then reflexively, I reach for the camera, forsaking all present thoughts to gain instant visual gratification time and time again.


Confessions of a Blatant Bloom-a-holic.


I have lain in the gutter, bringing attention to myself, ants crawling in private places rather not discussed, dead leaves entwined in my hair, camera in hand, to shoot a maze of tulips along the roadside.


Sweet success!


Squatting in a storm to capture a blossom as the sky becomes a skittering helter skelter electrical  staticsphere. I look up in time to see lightning strike in the horizon just beyond the hilltop.


Happy to get the shot!

Confessions of a Blatant Bloom-a-holic.


I have whipped a wide arc U-turn on a 4 lane highway, putting my own safety at risk, tires squealing, in order to take a few pictures of bright orange wild flowers on the fringe of the road.


Got it, no problemo!

Confessions of a Blatant Bloom-a-holic.


Yes, it’s true. I hold no shame for these uncontrollable blooming urges. Every season, Mother Nature spurns me further into a stupor. See there?! Is that a deep purple climbing clematis? Oh look! A stunning array of rhododendrons! Are those daisies?!


Ooh-ooh-ooh! Gotta go!................

What an amusing and lovely post.  I must admit to a similar affliction, and I have been know to turn around to get a shot, or to have Ron drive slowly past a bush while cars are honking behind us.  Such is the fate or those who love flowers. A

Very funny, ants and all.  I love the photo's you post but I draw the line at laying down with bugs.  I think a gutter in your neck of the woods is different from mine.

Cool pictures. I guess I could be considered a Bloom-aholic too.
