Flowers from Another Day

Flowers from Another Day

A vase of flowers over on a side table sat unnoticed for several days longer than usual. On the way out to the yard waste, they called to me asking for a final photograph. I really like the image… it calls to me. Make sure you click on it and see the larger image. The texture and detail are quite fine.

Stonecrop and Pinesap

I enjoy the flowers that struggle to grow in rugged, rocky dry places or deep in the woods. Stonecrop and Pinesap are that kind of plant. Stonecrop growing in the dry, rocky alpine slopes of the Olympic Mountains and Pinesap growing in the woods, living without chlorophyll.

Amanitas

These are described as poisonous. I heard stories about native shaman using the psychedelic properties to initiate spiritual trances by feeding them to reindeer. I had a friend back in the 70s that ate them and said the experience was quite intense once you got over the retching and vomiting. I will pass on that. Maybe a nice glass of wine.

Rose Hips

There is an amazing difference between these two plants and the rose hips they have produced. They are within five miles of each other and maybe they are even the same variety. The difference is the plant in the top image got watered regularly and the plant in the lower image only got water when it rained.

Canadian Dogwood

The canadian dogwood is also known as bunchberry. The berries are bright reddish-orange and not edible. The forest floor is brightened up by their presence, since not a whole lot of showy flowers grow in the deep shade.
