  1. What a unique petal structure this flower has. Beautiful. The maroon one was impressive but I think this one is prettier.

    • Thanks! This is another wildflower which, if you just walk past it, looks like a plain little white flower (it’s not very big). But when you look at it closely you can see that it’s a beautiful little thing.

  3. You’re surrounded by so many pretty faces, it’s a good thing you don’t have to choose. It’s astonishing to think of how many details we miss every day — and a great joy to see some of them captured like this.

    • Yes, we miss so much! It’s mosty by chance that we are at that certain place at that certain time.

    • Yes, it’s pretty. I’ve seen another that I like even better but I haven’t seen one this year yet.

  6. It’s strange with those flowers, Montucky. They seem very exotic for an apparently harsh climate. Beautiful details.

    • These like full sun and rather dry hillsides and they do bloom after the really cold days are gone, so maybe they have chosen the best time of year to bloom.

    • That’s exactly what I thought when I saw my first one. They are very plentiful once they start to bloom.

  9. What an interesting little plant creature…. “Mariposa” means “butterfly” in Spanish…and I can see why this lily has such a name…the shape is definitely there.

    Beautiful detail, Terry….
