The Big (photo) Dump, the wildflowers
OK, I have saved the best for last, the flowers. Mostly wildflowers, although I think a few are “escapees” from cultivation in previous years. Not all the photos are great, but they’re good enough for me to post here. Actually, the first one isn’t a photo of a flower, it is of the seed clusters of Virgin’s Bower after it blooms.
I wish I had a better photo, the seed clusters are almost as pretty as the flowers. That one was taken just before dark while I was looking for elk.
I can’t identify most of these, if you can, I would appreciate the help!
Any help at all.
How did that butterfly get in there, it belongs in the bug post.
I think these are fringed gentian, I found them while walking along in a coastal marsh while checking to see if I could put my kayak in there.
The coastal marshes I found along Lake Huron were full of these.
These were found growing along side of the roads back in the woods in several places.
The first photo was taken with my Nikon, the second with my Canon.
And these purple flowers grow all over.
Are they purple? Or are they blue?
These are hostas that have escaped.
This is a water lily.
And there are several species of yellow wildflowers growing near the creeks here.
I assume they are related to daisy’s and black eyed susans, but I am not positive.
If I had seen the bee flying into the frame, I would have gotten all of it, drat!
Then there are these tiny blue flowers.
Then we have these snapdragons that are escapees as well.
Well, that’s it! I have cleaned out my working folder now, and I am ready to start adding new pictures to it as I go walking everyday. As always, thanks for stopping by!
