Notes from the field, essays, and observations.
A prolific mustard family flower that puts splashes of white, pink, and purple in the landscape:
I indulged myself in some out of focus color by shooting through a cluster of the flowers…
Wonderful color and soft focus Thomas, this is an amazing image !!
I agree with Bernie. This is very nice! Love the composition and the soft focus.
You make an invasive, damaging plant look so lovely! I love the soft feel.
Thanks, Bernie, Jules, and Bo!
Bo, I just looked it up: Dame’s Rocket is invasive in some states, and Massachusetts has prohibited selling it as a garden plant. But I don’t think it’s on any target lists in Mass for eradication as Garlic Mustard is. I’m glad you mentioned it – I try to avoid glorifying invasives or borderline invasives.
Soft & pretty, Thomas! I would have never connected these rich colors with a mustard plant.
Invasive or not, you made a sweet image from it. I particularly like the three semi-opened buds that form a triangle. They seem to tie the entire composition together. Nicely done.
Very pretty purple haze!
