Bloomin' Tuesday!

It's all wildflowers this week.

A while back we did a post about Queen Anne's Lace. Click HERE to read about it.

We thought that this one was interesting.

I especially love the Queen Anne seed pod. Such a beautiful shot. I like the spider too. I haven't seen that color before. I always love how they camouflage so well.

Gorgeous wildflowers pictures. I love Queen Anne's Lace & the milkweed. The blue flower is Verbena 'Blue Vervain' right? It looks just like my plant.

Very pretty! I love close up shots.

Some truly lovely shots of these beautiful blossoms! For some reason the background color (where you print the words under each post) doesn't come up on my computer, so it's always hard for me to read your comments because they blend in with the orange/yellow background wallpaper. Ugh! Wish I could figure out what it is, cause I always love your photos and would love to be able to read what you have to say about them! Double ugh! ;o)

Your photos of Queen Anne's Lace are wonderful. Looks like tiny flowers growing at the tips. She is an under appreciated flower. Also, your sweet pea is delightful. We used to see these in every yard but then they were considered old fashioned. I am gald it is making a come back.

Great photos! Now I know what you were doing on your walk Sunday! Love the little bit of color on the Queen Ann's Lace. Mom

I've never seen QA lace seedpods. I photograph the blossoms if I visit my parents in the summer but have never been there at the right time to see the seeds cool.

I love milkweed but then I like spiders too.

Oh my what a funny spider!!! I've never seen anything like that before! The Queen Anne's lace is breathtaking!

I especially like the Queen Anne lace seedpods, the golden rod, and the milk weed. I think that I had forgotten how beautiful the milk weed is. Great post!
