Bushrue Flowers (Triptych)

I’ve never (consciously) noticed the pretty little white flowers of Bushrue (Cneoridium dumosum) before – after our nice and wet December with plenty of rain, the plants promptly awoke, and started to bloom at the end of December.

Bushrue is Southern California’s only native citrus plant. Being such a small shrub, it’s not that easy to photograph the flowers in a compelling and pleasing way – I wanted to show how they’re like tiny little white stars sitting on the spiny twigs amidst the longish green leaves. The resulting… “compositions” are rather chaotic. I tried to include a certain flow of lines from the twigs but I’m not quite sure if there’s any composition visible that can be identified as such…

Either way, as a little set of three I find the photos quite likeable, so here they are and I’m having fun. :-) I’ve arranged them into a triptych and they’re available as a single print in my store, here: Bushrue Flower Collage.
