Friday flowers…wild

Just over a week ago, I headed to the park hunting wildflowers.  The flowers of just a few days earlier were gone, probably not helped by all the rain.  Pale was no longer in vogue.  Now it was time for deeper, richer colors, although it seems impossible to take photos that show the sweep of the wildflowers.  They tend to be shy, hiding amongst the green, and often in the shade.  But I did my best.

There were some lighter colors in evidence.

There were also a plethora of bright, delicious wild green onions. So good!

    Lovely, though I know what you mean about photographing them. The sun tends to wash them out. No camera like the human eye!

    • Even in the shade, they tend to hide amongst grass and other plants, beneath fallen limbs, etc. and although the eye can see the multitude of flowers, the camera can’t capture the same feel.


  2. It is amazing what you can find if you look under the trees and in the shade!

  3. There is something magical about spring after all that white stuff. Love the color. 🙂

  4. How joyous the swath of wildflowers, it is a most glorious season.

    • It really is, but a very transient one. By the time I next get there, many of these may be gone, although the violets seem more hardy than some of the other wildflowers. Last week it was much too wet to venture far.


  5. I love the smell when walking through a patch of onions. Your second photo is stunning today, Janet. The flower looks like it is captured mid-prayer.

  6. Such cheerful little splashes of color… Mother Nature really is the best artist I know.

    Beautiful wildflowers Janet. 😀

  10. That pink one is marvelous!! Good eye! You had a good walk, and success finding some Spring flowers!

    • The spring flowers were innumerable, Deborah. It’s been too wet to get in there for some time now, so everything will have changed the next time I go there.

    They’re beautiful. I like the first picture the best – we have a bunch of those in our yard. I like the fact that you’re calling them wildflowers (my neighbor calls them weeds).

    • One man’s flowers are another man’s weed or vice versa. 🙂 Dandelions are a good example of that. They’re fine in the wild, but on my lawn, no thank you!

    I’d say that’s some right good bounty for the hunt! 🙂
