  2. I’ve said it before, but truly your photos belong in a wildflower calendar or in a beautiful coffee table style wildflower book. Thank you for always sharing them with us.

    • The little flowers make every walk a special occasion, don’t they. We only have to take the time to look at them.

      • Exactly. I try to get up each day and notice all these little beauties around me. Its easier in the summer as I have it off from school.

        • That’s a good way to start a day. And the flowers and species change as days go by.

    • The coralroot blossoms are very tiny but pretty. They grow from the sides of a tall straight stalk. They do look like orchids though.

  6. I like the deep color of that ragged robin. The ones I see are much paler, but they aren’t native.
    The orchids were a nice find. I like that coralroot!

    • The color might be because it was growing in the shade. Most are quite a bit lighter in color. I know of only a couple locations where they grow, bit in one of them there are lots.

  7. Another wonderful array of wildflowers. The Oxeye Daisy is the only one we have here. The Alaska Rein Orchid is an interesting one – nothing like the usual little wild orchids.

    • There are 8 species of wild orchids here that all have about the same structure, a tall stalk with small flowers all along it. There must be some kind of advantage to it.

  8. I know just how you feel. Ever since Memorial Day, I’ve felt as though spring was getting away from me, and summer too, for that matter. The profusion of flowers is just remarkable. There are days when it seems new ones are popping up every day. I’m especially fond of the deerhorn — it reminds me of a staghorn fern.

    • I still have over a dozen species that I haven’t posted yet, and there are still new ones starting to bloom. I just wish I could be everywhere at once!
