Awakening – The Wild Onion in Spring

Awakening © 2010 Bo Mackison

Couldn’t resist trying to capture the almost abstract lines of  these three drooping stems. Looks like the flowers are from the onion family, but uncertain of an ID. Photographed in a private garden in Madison, Wisconsin.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Beautiful in its simplicity and abstract.

  2. I like those too. Might be Nodding Onion.

    Good morning! Yep, I’m awake…thank you, Gandalf.

  5. I am trying to play catch up…again! That seems to be all I do these days. Thanks for your comments regarding my MAC/PC debate. Your comments were especially helpful. I’m going to go back to our MAC store and follow up on a couple of your comments, especially the training opportunities.

    I especially enjoyed this photo; love the simplicity and gracefulness.

  6. Simple and divine. The little bit of blue made me smile.
