May Wildflowers



Virginia Spiderwort Tradescantia virginiana



Wild Geranium Geranium maculatum











Common Fleabane Philadelphia Fleabane



Solomon's-plume False Solomon's-seal


Mystery to Me ??




Common Milkweed  Asclepias  syriaca  Waiting for the Monarchs


Fields of Wildflowers
upon closer scrutiny  
sparkling gems emerge 

Purple mist yellow
spiderwort and spider webs
 wildly woven glow

Wild Geraniums 
cranesbill beaks reach outwardly
 dew forms liquid orbs

Fleabane nectaries
timely cups unfurl reveal
precious sustenance

Solomon's-plumes wave
brilliant false starry singing
terminal clusters





Late for Gail's Wildflower Wednesday at Clay and Limestone

Heather at Dusty Bay said...

Wow on the macros!! You make each flower look so beautiful!

sandy said...

Wow, are you ahead of us. I have the mystery plant, too. I don't know what it is. As soon as the dew is off the grass, I am going out to look for fleabane.

Melissa said...

Absolutely wonderful macro pictures. I love getting close ups like those. Hadn't thought to post a closeup along with the not so close up. Really give a different view of what the main picture really has in it.

Andrea said...

Everything is perfect, from the wide angle shot to the minutest details of the macros. I am really envious, just like what i feel when i am looking at Donna's photos. I am always looking to the day when i can show as beautiful photos. The 2nd though i what i love most because of the color especially!

Country Gal said...

Fantastic photos !

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

Magnificent! Thank you Carol!

Carolyn ♥ said...

Magical! Love these pics, Carol. You've captured those tiny dew drops on the spider webs beautifully. I suppose we do have to have spiders to have their beautiful webs, don't we?!

Mark and Gaz said...

Thanks for sharing these photos Carol! My favourite is the Tradescantia, gardeners should plant more of these :)

Giga said...

Nothing pleases me quite like Geraniums, or the Berkshires in the spring. Wonderful stuff.

Tammie Lee said...

Hi Carol, I'm sitting here on the other side of the world and am sooo glad I found your blog. I am 20 years behind you in the creation stakes (just starting on my piece of paradise) and you have given me faith that all my mad ideas like beauty and nature, a cut flower business and retreat may not be so unattainable. I needed this today THANKS.

Bernie said...

Beautiful flowers and magnificent photos! Such a treat.

Helen said...

Delightful images, Carol. Your mystery flower is something in the mustard or crucifer family, always easy to ID due to the cross-shaped (cruciferous), 4-petalled flower.

Carol said...

Thanks so much everyone . . . for sharing your thoughts. Helen great tip! Alison, good luck with your dreams!
I truly appreciate all of your visits and feel awful I cannot reciprocate right now. I am greatly challenged at the moment but hope to be right again soon. I hope your gardens are bringing you great joy. With Gratitude, Carol

Hiya Carol

Tradescantia virginiana ia a gem. Beautiful photographs. It always looks a picture of tranquility over at your place.

Gail said...

Late is okay with me and what a beautiful post~I love macro and extreme macro is even more exciting. It has me wondering if I could name the flowers!! Now I am going to try to figure out that wildflower~. xogail I do love tradescantia.

The Violet Fern said...

Wild is so beautiful. I love the dew beaded threads. You certainly capture magic.

PatioPatch said...

I lost my tradescantia to dry soil and now see what I'm missing :( Lyrical words for glorious blooms in these detailed macros. Hope you feel well again soon, Carol.
