Two favorites

According to WordPress stats, this will be post number 401 for me. In celebration, here are two of my favorite wildflower photos.

Wild roses

Blue Clematis

(These are very big photos and they look better to me in larger sizes. For anyone interested in seeing the large sizes, you can click on the photo and it will take you to Flickr and you can select the large size.)


  1. Love those wild roses!

  2. You’re right, both pictures are even more beautiful at larger size. Just gorgeous!

    I love the clematis picture!

  3. Tabbie,

    They are everywhere now, and they keep blooming for a long time. One of my favorites for sure!

  4. Sara,

    The Clematis photo evokes a special reminder to me. The cliff behind it is very tall and above is one of the wildest areas around here. The mountain in front (behind the camera) drops off into the Clark Fork valley, 3,000 feet below. What a view those flowers have!

  5. Wow, both are beautiful! I think I like the blue ones a little better, they seem shyer, if that makes sense. =^..^=

  6. I know what you mean. To me they look like birds.

  7. Great photos! Although your wild roses look similar to ours (Rosa woodsi), your clematis is pretty different from our Pipestem Clematis.

  8. I clicked to your Flickr before scrolling down to read your recommendation! I think every time you post a new photo I get a new favorite! 🙂

  9. Adam,

    It’s interesting, isn’t it what differences there are between here and there.

  10. Thanks, Silken! It just seems like the flowers are out-doing themselves this year. We’ve starting to have a stretch of hot weather now though and the country is already getting dry, so we’ll have to see what they will do now.

  14. I’m glad all of these finish blooming before hunting season or I’d never get much hunting done.
