During one of my many walks around town My daughter picked theses wildflowers for me while I was taking pictures. We rounded the corner towards home and the afternoon sun lit up the bouquet she made of them so prettily we stopped to take another picture. I had always thought the larger blue flower towards the top of the arrangement was a cornflower, but it turns out that it is common chicory. I loved the little fluffy looking puff balls in this bouquet as well–they catch the light beautifully. It turns out they are a variety of clover called “hare’s foot trefoil.” Now that I know what they are called, I can see how they resemble little rabbit’s feet. Then there is some common white clover and the purple kind is called Red Sweet Clover. She sure did a nice job of arranging them into a pretty bouquet 🙂

Bouquet of hare’s-foot trefoil, white clover, and purple clover, topped with a blue Cichorium Intybus (common chicory) blossom. Afternoon summer sunlight causes dramatic highlights on individual tufts of fluff and flower petals as well as making the gravel road sparkle in the background.

I liked this picture so much I also tinkered around with using various tints on it.

While I was on the way to the post office the other day I came across some pretty little pink wildflowers growing in the grass at the edge of someone’s lawn. They were shining so beautifully in the sunlight I just had to stop and get some close up shots. Then on the way home I spotted some purple flowers growing next to a large evergreen tree trunk. Based on a wildflower identification chart I found, the pink ones are most likely Redstem Filaree–also known asStorksbill, Cranesbill, Clocks, or Alfilaria. I am still not sure what the purple ones are–the flowers look similar to a wild radish, but the leaves seem different than that to me.

This summer I experimented with the macro feature on my camera. Here are some more close up shots I took while taking a nature walk around Trojan pond.

The first is of some lavender colored thistle flowers. I love how the blossoms are in such sharp focus as the grass and other vegetation in the background is softened and blurred.
