Wildflowers

They are just beginning to bloom after the drought, but the autumn colors are showing in purples and yellows. Here the spikes of purple loosestrife (an invasive annual best cut for presentation in a vase so the seeds don’t spread), and Queen Anne’s Lace, flower heads diminished after the heat with aromatic wormwood mix with everyday hybrids geraniums, impatiens and lobelia and my vintage phlox.


Pink Impatiens, 2011

Pink Impatiens

Part of the glory of summer is the flowers that show off their brilliant colors, and while we think it’s for our enjoyment, it’s actually for their own purposes.

Here are deep pink impatiens seen from behind like an umbrella turned inside out, with late morning sun shining through the petals and leaves, varied shadows and color changes in the overlaps, but a moment in the beauty they bring to the world.
