Spring Flora

SPRING FLORA, found on Friday.

These photos are a bit dark, in order to preserve the saturated color of the flowers.  If you click twice on any image, you can view it on a black background.

While the perfection of cultivated flowers is striking, wildflowers have their own charms, not the least is   local distinction.

Dandelions may not qualify as wildflowers, but this close-up view reveals details not usually seen.

This yellow flower was minuscule, maybe 3/8ths of an inch across.

This and the following flowers are even smaller.

Flower photos are popular, but I really enjoy finding mushrooms. These life forms almost look extraterrestrial, their family tree having diverged from the plants and animals a very long ago.
