white wildflower
i much prefer my whites in flowers, rather than the stuff on the ground right now

yellow columbine

time for a “springy” picture. it snowed here last night. the white is really pretty but not quite deep enough to make for interesting shots yet, so i’ll post an old one instead. (i’m really not a winter person anyway)

beauty in the details

i really need to get a book on local wild flowers, so i know what flowers i’m taking pictures of 🙂 .  i am constantly fascinated by their beauty and details, but it would be nice to know what they are called – mostly because i’m a nerd with a need to know about everything i see.  would it make them anymore beautiful if i knew what they were? or would the name be a disappointment?  “they” say “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”  but would anyone get close enough to tell if they knew it was called something like stinkwort?  😆

edit.  i have now identified this one as “old man’s whiskers” , and i am a little disappointed ’cause i really don’t see how it got the name.  i mean shouldn’t something called old man’s whiskers be fuzzy white or silver at least?

forget me nots, shooting stars and wood violets.

the interesting thing about being a klutz is all the things you see while watching your footing. i sometimes forget to look around at the mountains, i’m so fascinated by the little details up close.

but my reward is seeing creation in the closeups. i an awestruck by the diversity and incredible detail in a tiny flower that blooms today and is gone tomorrow. there is comfort in the thought that if the creator cares for them, how much more does he care for me?
