Must have been a special occasion in the wildflower world at Munson Creek.


Tiarella unifoliata


  1. Wow! That is so pretty. I wish I’d had some of those in my wedding bouquet.

    • They would be beautiful for that except for their size. The blossoms are scarcely more that 1/8 inch across.

  2. It is amazing how you capture these tiny filaments with great detail.

    • They are tiny, but worth a try. This one came out well.

    • I’ve photographed them before but those didn’t have the same look. Perhaps these look that way because they are blooming quite late in the season.

  4. Wow! All dressed up and no where to go… poor thing. It could come here! ;o)

    • I’ve thought that about wildflowers quite often, Stacey. So many live out their beautiful little lives without a human having a chance to see them. I’m sure the critters of importance (the pollinators) visit them regularly though.

  5. Oh wow, that is spectacular! The filaments looks like sparkles. Amazing detail. Lovely.

    • They are blossoms that one just can’t see completely without the aid of a good lens. I was pleasantly surprised at what the camera saw.

    • This is one that would probably be widely cultivated were it much larger.

  8. I was commenting on blogs the day you posted this. By the time I got to it, I knew it was special, but I was sooooo tired the wherewithal simply was not there to even make a comment. Sorry. This looks sugar has been sprinkled all over it. Lovely, lovely. The contrasts and textures and colors really make this tiny blossom an excellent find.

    • Sugar sprinkles! What a nice way to describe it! Thanks Iona!

  9. It really does look bejeweled.

    • I really don’t understand what makes the special decorations on it. I’ve not seen them do that before.
