The weather was better than the birding at Theler Wetlands Sunday and today. Although I did manage to get a few bird shots, my favorite shots were flower shots.
I’ve always thought this red and yellow Columbine was a striking flower, reminding me of a shooting star.
I’m really not sure what this flower is or even whether it was on a tree or just a large plant. This is really larger than life-size, but it struck me as a mini-bouquet.
I’m sure many people view foxglove as a weed, and I’m sure this one was a volunteer since it was growing next to a shed and not in a flower bed. Still, it’s a favorite that I always liked grow when it shows up in one of my own flowerbeds.
The dominant flower now, though, is definitely the wild roses that line much of the one and a half mile long trail. Though they’re not all is perfect as this one
they always strikes me as the archetypal “flower” by which all other flowers should be judged.
