Forgotten beauties

I'm still sorting my old storage, and finding all sorts of forgotten treasures. I don't think I ever wrote about Earthwise Organic Farm. My mistake; I'll remedy that soon.

These are three flowers from their half-wild walking path, in July of 2010.

Uncharacteristically shy poppy

Shyer poppy

Nothing shy about an aster

I just realized they've opened early this year; we'll have to stop in soon.


  1. That last one isn't an aster, it's a Rudbeckia.

    I love little farms. There's one just up the road from me that grows vegetables and flowers. I toured it one year in October, and they let me look through the ragged remains of their flowerbeds and pick whatever I could find.

  2. Thanks, Vasha.

    I wasn't sure of the genus. I considered Rudbeckia, but decided to go with the family (Asters), just in case.

  3. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
    Soon our will bloom.

    Greetings from Cottage Country!

  4. I've been following your blog for some time, but have rarely left a comment....Still, I admire your lovely photographs and little glimpses into all of the wonderful animals and plants up there in your neck of the woods. Living in western Washington, our climate and ecosystems are similar. I've nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award because yours is one of the top blogs that always inspires me. See details on my blog, and may Spring move into your area soon!


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
