I post a photo to Flickr almost every day, but I still have hundreds of images in that folder. Most of them are pretty doggone poor, which explains while they still linger there sometimes after years, but as I chanced to peruse the folder as I sometimes do, I noticed a number of flower photos.
Thought I, wouldn't it make a nice winter break to post a string of these in February: to brighten up winter so to speak.
So, I have begun to do just that. I don't know how many I will eventually post, but here are the first three.
These are mallows (or so I believe) that I saw in Nova Scotia way back in 2010. That doesn't necessarily mean that I put the photo in my Flickr queue way back then, but it is possible. These pinks really speak of summer to me in a very pleasant sort of way.
The next two were both taken locally in July of 2015 on a stroll on a local trail. The first resembles a false sunflower, but I will just identify it as a yellow wildflower. If you can identify it properly, please let me know.
The next one I can identify as that which is popularly referred to as Queen Anne's Lace. It's an extremely ubiquitous roadside or trail-side plant in these parts. Apparently it is also called Wild Carrot by some although that name is not familiar to me. I understand that the proper taxonomic name is Daucus carota.
I plan to post more to Flickr, but I generally only post one per day, so we are presently up to date. Once I have posted a few more there, I will most likely post here as well.
