Sunday Stills...Flowers and Wild Flowers


Poplar flower

Box Elder Flower

Blood root, showing its opinion of the season





This one really was a challenge. Not so much that there isn't a whole lot in bloom here in the frozen north, but the weather was lousy almost all week, rain, snow, sleet, bah humbug. However, we did find a few things.


For more Sunday Stills....

Well, these pixes were well worth the effort of slogging through the blechy weather.

I love your sense of the bloodroot's 'attitude'l

box elder, is it the same as elder berries which the New Zealanders make a beer from?

Dibear, thanks, maybe I will hike back up there and check it out...you have me wondering now. lol

Ed, thanks, it was so nasty all week it took a while

Linda, kind of nice to hear that rather than be saying it to all those lucky folks to the south of us. lol

Michelle, thank you very much!

Cathy, thanks! Poor little thing was all curled up alone in the grass in the heifer pasture, looking like it was shivering

Lisa, Happy Easter and thank you!

Achieve, thanks and Happy Easter to you too!

Devin, thanks

Ann, no, we have those too, but box elder is a minor member of the maple family

Laughing Orca, thank you!

Shirley, thanks, same here. They are so welcome after the long winter

That first photo took my breath away but I have to say the Poplar and the Blood Root were my favorites. Really nicely composed shots...thank you for sharing. PS I'm with dibear - I'd like to see a few of those when they open too! Pretty please...

Excellent images, TC. Time to say goodnight to the snow for awhile. Good eye for spotting these, and good eye for your views of them.
