Sometimes the loveliest flowers thrive in the unlikeliest places. They don’t want our care – they prefer to live wild where rivers and forests remain intact.
Yesterday I showed you a Trillium but here is another. See how easily it grows from the messy forest floor?
The Bleeding Heart grows too without a fuss. Delicate yet hardy, even the name is lovely.
Last – and possibly least of all – is the humble dandelion – an intruder in our gardens – but lovely next to the trail.
I love my dandelions!
They really are pretty aren’t they? But they get no respect! 🙂
I do agree….
Nature is shrugging off our health crisis and enjoying the space….
Life goes on in the forest continuing to provide beauty for our enjoyment!
I think that many plants treated as ‘weeds’ are just as attractive as any that we cultivate.
Best wishes, Pete.
So true! Funny how some of them get a bad rap! 🙂
Very pretty. Makes me feel I took a walk in the woods. 🙂
Thank you! There’s nothing like a walk in the woods! 🙂
Yes! I agree 🙂
Those Bleeding Heart are beautiful!
Thank you! Aren’t they wonderful? 🙂 🙂
Yes! Thank you for sharing!
A weed is only a plant growing in the wrong place. Your dandelion pictures prove it.
Thank you! I totally agree! 🙂
Outstanding pictures, Susanne! I like the wildflowers better than the cultivated ones.
Thank you so much! I know what you mean. They’re natural beauties!.
I love forest flowers. Bluebells are usually blossoming at this time of the year and so is wild garlic, but it doesn’t look as we gonna be able to see it this year due to the restrictions🙈
Sorry. 😑 Hopefully the restrictions will be eased soon.
Beautiful photographs. I miss the days when my boys would bring me fistfuls of yellow dandelions with which to make a bouquet for a centerpiece on our dining room table.
Aw sweet memories! 🙂
Your close up photos of flowers are always so amazing! Some of them I had never heard of before. Maybe they don’t grow in Fresno? But, yes we have dandelions too 😊
Aw thank you so much! I imagine the trilliums and bleeding hearts which are native here might find the hot and dry weather in Fresno inhospitable! 🙂
Yes those were the ones!😊
