Excellent! Only the barbed wire is stopping your quest, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Ray! I felt the barbed wire added a bit of harsh contrast to the delicate plant...

I like to put yarrow on the compost heap - it is supposed to encourage it to rot down
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I had no idea! Thanks for the lesson, Lisl!

A lovely & useful plant is yarrow
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So I understand, Chris!
This one is growing in a place where it is at risk of being removed Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I doubt it would be removed, but it's likely to be eaten!
This is a very pleasing picture E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm very happy you like it, Bill!
A beautiful and delicate plant Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it!! Thank you Richard!
the vignette works, but I think a darker one would have been better
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Chantal!! You may be right - I thought it would bring out the creamy color
Lovely shot against that background, Elizabeth

Love the contrast between the delicate flower and the harshness of the barbed wire, Elizabeth.
I like the smell of yarrow and have three types.

I like the mix of natural with the plant and the wood against the manmade of the fence.
The simplicity of this is beautiful.
It looks like a brave little plant against a hard world, Elizabeth....Nice shot.
