TODAY'S FLOWERS # 104

I have been home now for a little over 24 hours. I had a wonderful time in Seattle and these are a few of the flowers I took photos of. I'm afraid I don't know what they are, except for the third one down which looks like some type of wild rose.

Welcome home!
What lovely flowers. I'm terrible with names, I usually go by color...red flower, white flower, etc. - Haha!

It's good to hear you had a lovely holiday. Welcome home :-) Splendid photos but I can't help with the identification, I'm afraid.

A lovely group of wildflowers, Denise. I too have been on vacation for about three weeks so that's why I've not commented on your site. Trying to get caught up with blogging!

Hi Denise,

I take a crack at iding some of the flowers. Seattle and that region is amazing to me for the way and amount of things that grow.

#4 looks like Common Arrowhead (Sagittaria latifolia)

#5 could be some sort of Fireweed.

#6 The flower looks like Astilbe but the foliage doesn't match.

Hi Denise,
Good to hear you had a wonderful trip and are safe back home.
The first two photos are of Vetch I believe. It grows heavily by our roadsides.
Lovely variety!

lovely pictures, I don't know the English names, but I can try some latin ones.. The lilac at the first pic looks like "vicia cracca", can it be tufted vetch in English?.., the yellow one, might be a Lotus Cornicalatus. the 5.th picture seems to be an Epilobium angustifolium.
I love your wildflower-photos. Have a lovely Sunday.

Carolyn Ford said...

I bet you had a nice visit in Seattle! There's much to see and do in that area. I, too, believe we can enjoy flowers without getting bogged down with names...I have to believe that or I wouldn't be allowed to enjoy them! You captured some lovely, soft and delicate, flowers...very nice way to start a Sunday, indeed. Welcome back home!

Wonderful set of photos here Denise. I especially love that yellow one.

They're all so pretty! My favorite would be the pink one---the second from the bottom.

Hi Denise.. Glad you enjoyed your NW trip... we have had a cool summer:-) Since the flowers are from my "neck of the woods" the purple in the first one is Vetch... and the fifth photo is fireweed. Lovely photos!! Thanks for stopping by:-)
