Flowers wild and tame

I keep putting flower photos into a folder for "later". These are from July and these first days of August:

Cilantro flowers, from a friend's garden.

Pearly everlasting, Anaphalis margaritacea, on every roadside.

Foamflower, Tiarella trifoliata, going to seed.

Another garden plant. Pink lily.

On a cliff face at Buttle Lake. Spreading stonecrop, Sedum divergens

And another lily, yellow and white.

Another cliff dweller. I think it is one of the pussytoes, ready to spread its seeds.

And the brown moss that grows on these dry cliffs: look at the left on this last photo: it looks to me like a stuffed toy, a sleeping dog. And there's a mouse, too.

He estado guardando fotos de flores, dejándolas para "más tarde". Pues ahora es más tarde; estas son fotos sacadas en el mes de julio y estos primeros dias de agosto.

  1. Flores de cilantro en el jardín de una amiga.
  2. La eterna perlada, Anaphallis maragaritacea, que crece en todas partes.
  3. La flor espuma, Tiarella trifoliata produciendo semilla. Esta planta crece en sombra.
  4. Un lirio grande, color de rosa, en el jardín de mi amiga.
  5. Sedum divergens, creciendo en un acantilado al lado de Buttle Lake.
  6. Otro lirio, este amarillo con blanco.
  7. Otra planta que crece en las rocas. Creo que es uno de los "dedos de gato", Antennaria spp.
Y en esta última foto, mirando ese musgo color café que crece en estas caras del acantilado, se me ocurre que parece animalitos de peluche; mira a la izquierda; hay un perrito dormilón, ¿no? ¿Y un ratoncito?


  1. All lovely, but that pink lily-woof!

  2. I think the last plant is Silverback Luina, named for the wooly under-surface of its leaves.


I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

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!
