Many or perhaps most of these cannot be domesticated and that’s part of the fun pf photographing them. Besides, they grow in such wonderful surroundings. To me, this photo was well worth the two mile hike to get to it
I’d say that two-mile hike was well worth it. It’s funny — I’ve never kept journals before, but I’m beginning now to write down where and when I see things, so I can remember when the next spring or fall rolls around. And the more I look, the more I see. It’s just not possible to keep them all straight. This coming weekend, I’m going to drive for an hour to a refuge, for another look at a yellow flower that I didn’t photograph well enough to identify, and didn’t make notes on. We do get a little crazy about these things, don’t we?
