Happy Hump Day all! This is for #WildflowerWednesday curated by +Bette Kauffman. This is Blazing Star Gayfeather in bloom late this summer here in Kansas. I captured it while the Painted Ladies were around in big numbers so there are a couple of butterly bonuses. :-) Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi and happy Hump Day! This is for #WildflowerWednesday curated by +Bette Kauffman . This is a flower that gets a bad rap thinking it causes allergies but it is the Ragweed that is really the cause. This is one of a couple of varieties that we have blooming in the area though the cold temps may have killed it off last night, called Prairie Goldenrod. It's a shorter more curved blooming variety. It's interesting to see the different colors of wildflowers as the year progresses. Autumn is mostly yellows and some purples. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! This is for #WildflowerWednesday curated by +Bette Kauffman . This is a Showy Evening Primrose in bloom out on Konza Prairie that I captured on Friday. I took this in early evening sunlight. These Primrose are blooming quite a lot in our area of Kansas right now. I have even seen quite the large groups of them along the interstate. It's been quite lovely. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi and Happy Wednesday! The Cobaea Penstemon are in bloom in my area of Kansas. They are one of my favorite wildflowers with their large globe shaped flowers and the color. I captured this one after a rain recently. Over on my Blog at www.alittleplaceontheweb.com I have pages of Kansas wildflowers by color to help in identifying the more common ones you see. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.

Hi all and happy Saturday! It's a dark rainy morning here so I decided to share a burst of color. The Echinaceas also known as Cone Flowers are beginning to bloom in my area of Kansas. I captured this one with a few rain drops on it after a rain last week and thought it appropriate for today. It reminds me of a firework bursting out. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#wildflowerwednesday  curated by +Bette Kauffman 

Morning, I needed something bright and lovely this morning. I captured this group of Coreopsis growing wild in the ditch on the way back from the chiropractor one day this summer. They were just beautiful and growing all along in the ditches providing great bursts of color. Hope you enjoy this image and have a great day!

Happy first Wednesday of the year! The predictions were correct for once and we are only at 12 F this morning. Brrrrr. Not sure if there is still a #wildflowerwednesday  but I am cold so thinking warm thoughts and these Daisy Fleabanes remind me of warmer days. One of these flowers has a couple of buddies you can see better when viewed larger. :-) Hope you enjoy them and have a great day and stay warm if you are experiencing cold like us or worse.

Hi all. This is an image where I took out on Konza Prairie where I tried to be a bit artsy. You can let me know if I succeeded. This is a view of some dark red Butterfly Milkweed with some prairie bokeh.

Morning! Life sure isn't calming down much for me to get caught up with you all. Having to do in spurts. :-) My image for today is of a Wildflower that grows rather profusely in our area from the Poinsettia family called Snow On the Mountain. I played around with the image to make it a bit more artsy. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hello! Happy Friday and it's #FridaysAreBokehlicious  ! This is for all my fellow #bokeholics  and also fits is the +FloralFriday theme as well.
This is one of the many Showy Lady Slippers that I saw in Tamarac Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota. It was a good year for them and there had to be 100s of them. This is Minnesota's state flower. It's a wildflower and part of the Orchid family. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great start to your weekend!
