photoblog image Fendler's Sandwort

Fendler's Sandwort

Arenaria fendleri

Pink Family (Caryophyllaceae)

 

Some images from a walk on Mt. Humphreys last spring.

We may not see any wildflowers this year...

We've not had enough precipitation to feed them.

 

 

 The 'Golden Rule' is actually quite universal.

A very pretty thang, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it, Ray! They are very dainty, pretty , little thangs!
Sad to hear about the lack of wildflowers...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too, Larry. We hiked yesterday - and I saw one. Very sad.

Très joli, dommage qu'il n'y en ai pas cette année.

This is so delicate, and you have inspired me to show some flowers from my recent Italian trip, Elizabeth. Sad if you have a dearth of them this year
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Lisl! Oh - I look forward to seeing your Italian flowers!
It will be a very sad summer without the wildflowers. Our bees and hummingbirds will suffer as well...
That's gorgeous, Elizabeth...and I really like that you included The Golden Rule in the different faiths of the world.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Ginnie! I really like that poster... smile

This is very delicate. Elizabeth. I love the soft feeling here. Love the Hinduism quote.

Me too!

Some years you get no wild flowers - how awful

This is a lovely image
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's not normal, I don't recall it ever happening before
... and it will be awful.
Global warming is wreaking havoc on our little corner of the world.

Sometimes the more delicate they appear the tougher they are.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That can certainly be true... I hope so!

So very delicate and so well photographed.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Alan!
Very pretty. They will return. As our former local radio weather forecaster would say , mother nature will balance her books
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Bill!
I do hope you are right... and the forecaster as well!

Delicate flower and in memoriam, if its offspring don't show this year.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you kindly, Louis - a lovely comment
What a lovely flower, our (Maureen's) garden is suddenly springing to life over the last few days, time to get the camera out. The poster is very good, I would love to show it at church but being a Baptist one I think some of them might not appreciate it.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it! I'd love your (Maureen's) garden, I know!
I do like that. To me, the poster is evidence of one God, and a like goal in following him.

I like the delicate beauty of this image.

Lovely shot, Elizabeth - nice bokeh.

What a sweet little bloom. The purple and yellow are perfect together.

A beautiful shot, Elizabeth, and a fine sentiment.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, My Love!
lovely play with the dof in this image of great elegance, Elizabeth.
