photoblog image Prairie Smoke

Prairie Smoke

Geum triflorum

Rose Family  (Rosaceae)

 

Of all the paths you take in life,

make sure a few of them are dirt.

~ John Muir

 

I thought some of you might like to see the Aspen Fleabane bud I showed yesterday, opened up... Pardon the quality of the photo, it was taken with a very old film camera many years ago...

Beautiful study!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, so much, Ray!
BTW - I've added a photo of a Fleabane opened up - if you want to compare it to yesterdays bud.

The top picture is very delicate and wonderful, Elizabeth. Great DOF. I love the Aspen Fleabane flower too, it looks "happy" and adoring sun smile

I can see why it might be called that. Very nice too..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yup- when you have an entire field of them, it really does look like smoke or a soft mist... Thank you!

Oh so delicate and wispy. Thanks for showing the flower from yesterday. Just shows that now digital cameras out-perform film cameras on occasions.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it, Alan! I'm glad you like it - I thought it might help to show the open flower. I wasn't very skilled at photography then - not even now.. but worse then! smile

Thanks for showing the Aspen Fleabane open - it looks like a completely different flower. The Prairie Smoke is gorgeous, too, and well-named
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Doesn't it?! I love that about it!
When there's a field of Prairie Smoke like this, it really does look like smoke or a low lying mist!
Hum..c'est vraiment très beau ..
Bonne journée
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think so, too, Claudine! Thank you!
Looks like a big daisy E. Lovely!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes! Although, it's actually quite tiny!

The smokey name fits the flower. Great shot and nice on the smooth background blur.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It does, doesn't it? Especially when there are many of them in a cluster. Thank you so much, Louis! Have a nice weekend!
They are both beautiful flowers, who would have thought the one from yesterday would look like that.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think so, too! Fleabanes are surprising!
I love the way you have captured the fluffiness!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Ruthie! I do love that about them!
I love flowers with showy seed heads like this. Nicely done with the inclusion of grass.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do, too, Mary! Wonderful, aren't they! Thank you!
the prairie smoke is pretty Elizabeth but the daisy is a protected flower in my gardensmile
....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so pleased, Peter!!
Here is another news, I see it for the first time.

Bello
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I'm happy to introduce you, Claudio! Grazie!
