Wednesday, I had lunch with my sister-in-law Mary. As I was getting ready to leave, I decided to take some photos of her property near Mary Woods. It looked so pretty to me and now we are now both trying to figure out what some of the wildflowers are.
This photo of lupins is courtesy of Steve Tabone who gives blanket permission to use his beautiful photographs with a link back to his site: Stephen L Tabone Nature Photography. Wonderful perspective in this photo. I might have taken a photo trying to capture mountain and sky leaving the lupins to look pedestrian...ho hum. Here the lupins are truly showcased as they stretch toward that mackeral sky.
While Mary had no lupins, she does have other posies that I found at Mr. Tabone's site.
We are unsure what this flower is. It stands about two feet tall on furry, sturdy stalks and has a fringed leaf. Could it be Fringed Loosestrife?
Indian Paintbrush in the center and is the yellow to the left Prickly lettuce? Tough to see I know.
