A bunch of flowers
I’ve been exploring flowers this spring, more than the other subjects I like doing, and my posts here haven’t caught up with what I’ve been doing or seeing.
So here’s a bunch of flowers, a whole gallery of them. Click on a thumbnail to view a larger image.
Notes on the flowers follow the images.
Going from left to right and top to bottom, the flowers are:
Buttercup (Ranunculus sp) – a nodding bloom covered with rain drops.
Pale corydalis – related to bleeding hearts, I find this on rocky hilltops. The flowers are small, on long slender stems. I have no idea why they are called “pale” – the colors look vivid to me!
Bloodroot – an abstracted closeup of an early white wildflower.
Dandelion – a large, brightly colored bloom in a grassy meadow.
Tulip tree – an unusual-looking tree flower. I wish they weren’t all so high up!
Starflower – a tiny woodland flower; they carpet the forest floor in some places, accompanied by Canadian mayflower and sometimes pink ladyslipper.
Bluebells (Scilla hispanica) – an non-native wildflower I found in a meadow.
Bloodroot – another view of this white wildflower.
