20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Star Gazer Lily profile in the afternoon light

I have kept an extensive garden of perennials for the last 15 years. This year I endeavored to photo document each of the 300 varieties, from the first Winter Aconite to the last Pink Chelone (Turtlehead). This Lilium 'Starfighter' bloomed July 5th, 2022 in central Indiana.
