Ooh, nice. What is the first photo?

Kate said...

Hi!
#1 I'm thinkin' Queen Anne's Lace but what the heck do I know?

#2 and #5 Wild Geraniums (somewhat postive :-)

#3 Wild Roses (for sure!)

#4 Those greens are lupine leaves, yet no lupines in site.

#5 Going out on a limb and calling it an onion. Certainly smelled like one.

Happy WW!

I just LOVE your photography!!!!

Stan said...

You've got some great shots. It's amazing what happens up in the mountains after the snow melts and the sun comes out.

Liz said...

Gorgeous photos and subjects! I posted a link to your blog on our Park City Foodprint FB page. Thanks for putting up our logo! Liz

when I see wildflowers like this, I see where the ones in the nursery got their beginnings.

That must be a lovely place to walk!

Kate said...

Thanks, Sweet Friends;
It's such a pretty hike and easy, too. About a mile. :)

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

Lovely series.

Rose said...

So pretty! Our roadsides are full of wildflowers right now--thankfully, the state is too broke to mow them down:)

Ahh...I can smell the mountains through the pixels.

these really are stunning pictures of stunning plants. We have nothing on this scale. I've done a nature post as well, but I am afraid, a rather tame one.

The UK is a gentle, small-scale place.

Oh, I just saw the question re the first photo and your reply; no, definitely not Queen Anne's lace; that's one wildflower I know rather well.

You had me going! I was about to write that you're about to get some lupines, and then I read that you found these alongside a trail. You'll have to go back and pick some of the seeds to scatter in your own garden! ;)

Titanium said...

Wildflowers are the carpet in the alpine meadows all around... these are gorgeous!

We've got lupines out in full force, I'll have to find some shots 'em now that I think of it.

Hello Kate,

Your pictures are beautiful. I think I recognize the orange flowers of Globe Mallow :-)

Wendy said...

Amy said...
