Hello everyone! Here we are back again on this rainy and cool autumn day! Perhaps you want rain where you live, it is a good and necessary thing sometimes. But it’s always nice to have some bright sunshine on those rainy days. I can’t bring the sunshine, but I can bring you some sunny brightness in the way of flowers. So, whether their are clouds overhead, or it just feels like there is, I hope you will enjoy this selection of bright flowers.
Above is the ox-eye daisy. Who makes up these names anyway? Oh well, a pretty flower.
Above is the yellow loosestrife, also called swamp candle. They grow like bright candles in wet/swampy areas.
Above we have the arrow-leaved aster, one of many varieties of wild asters in this area.
Above, the upright bindweed, strange name for a beautiful wildflower. It’s about 3 inches (7.5cm) across and the flowers last only a day.
Lastly, the showy lady’s slipper, our largest wild orchid and basically gone now from our area due to people picking them. Too bad really, they are so beautiful. Please don’t pick wildflowers. Take a picture and leave them for others to enjoy.
I hope you have enjoyed these today. Since I missed yesterday’s pictures, and it’s raining once again, I thought it would be nice to share some more color today. Enjoy your day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
