Wild strawberry

With the fading light of evening and the dimness of the deep canyon giving its snow-white petals a bluish cast, this small blossom awaited the onset of its first night: there was just one.

  1. wow,…I didn’t recognize it until I read your text,… I actually thought it WAS a blue flower. Neat!

    • I was surprised to see the blue petals too but I didn’t have time to experiment around with it. I’m surprised to see a strawberry blooming this early, and it is a very small blossom at that.

    • Something about the light. I really don’t understand.

  3. I love wild strawberries. They are like nature’s tiniest roses followed up by a tasty bit of heavenly nectar.

    • Yes, they are delightful. We have a bed of them near the house and while we eat one or two in a summer, the rest belong to the Robins.

  4. How very beautiful! Wild strawberries do have lovely blossoms. I eagerly await for the wildflowers and wild strawberries to bloom here. The evening light does have wonderful hues upon nature and landscape. Great capture, montucky.

  5. Montucky, I’m on a Beatles kick. Loved the photo of the (blue)strawberry plant. And of course it reminds me of Strawberry Fields

    • Your area is so far ahead of ours! Of course, at the moment we’ve dipped back nearly into winter: it was 25 last night
