My photo collection is getting out of hand!!! I need to clean out my
...in the early morning sun...
Most days, when out walking for the exercise, I tend to photograph a lot of wildflowers...year 'round!! Here are some throughout the past several months in different spots in our coastal area. Sharing them before I delete them from my folder:
On the dunes, just after sunrise, year 'round in warm, protected, areas, there are two distinctive 'morning glories'. The Railroad Vine, that has the purple/pink blossoms which I've recently posted photos of here. And the white 'morning glory' is known by the name "Goat's Foot", which I have not an inkling as to why the name....but it's also commonly known as the Beach Morning Glory. It's the white blooms seen above after the rainfall along the boat channel's walkway. I've read that the Beach Morning Glory and the Railroad Vine can have vines that extend in growth to 100 feet or more!!
[blooming year 'round]
Another favorite of mine can be found in man-made ponds along some of the birding and hiking trails. Tho, not considered a 'wildflower' in terms of growing from runners or wind-blown seed, these I found at Charlie's Pasture North near the cotillion:
[blooming in April]
I made a couple of collages since I have dozens of flower images...
[most blossoms are Late Spring -mid Summer - Early Fall]
I love the light fragrance of wisteria!! And of course, they're purple!!! They're really not 'wild flowers' in certain terms, but I found these along a back road on the outskirts of town, and stopped to get a photo and then, zoomed in---
[blooming in March]
Daisies and Fire Wheels - at a distance, and zoomed in...
And then, the day of the frogs!!! They were EVERYwhere!!! [and a snake too!]
