You’ve got some real beauties blooming there and they all look so delicate. We had 5 inches of snow yesterday and temps in the teens last night, so what’ll happen with the flowers now is anyone’s guess.
Ah, it’s a pleasure to see your beautiful spring flower shots again. I think you were posting them regularly when I first started following your blog. I love seeing all the tiny details of macro shots, that we can’t usually see with the naked eye.
Every time I see that shooting star, I’m in awe at the details. I don’t remember seeing the red zig-zag before, but that’s the sort of thing that leaves me pondering. Do such decorations have a purpose, or are they just that: decorations? No final answer’s possible, I suppose, but it’s fun to think about.
Excellent photos, Terry.
That shooting star flower is amazing. What an unusual colour range in the one flower.
Could you post a photo of it when it’s fully open please. Is that sky blue colour still part of the flower head I’m wondering?
That’s fully open. It’s a very different blossom. The leaves stay nearly flat on the ground, then the long flower stems grow and produce the buds and flowers. They grow to be 3 to 6 inches tall. Sure is a lot of colors in one blossom!
