  1. A great set of images especially the Goats Beard Keith.

  2. You know all of wild flowers by name, you and Trevor make a good team.

  3. My day is overcast and wet so I'll enjoy your flora images and hope they will soon produce some 'flutter' sightings.

    Have a good weekend my friend.

  4. The first and third are wonderful.
    The others are h'educational.
    Have a good trip.

  5. most we don't get here, so enjoyed them a lot!

  6. A nosegay made with some excellent images Keith. The Goat's Beard image stands out for me...[;o)

  7. Thanks Roy. I quite like the Goat's Beard . Common, but a fine looking plant.

    Thanks Bob. The books help, but Trevor does know a lot more than I do.

    Cheers Frank. I was hoping for sunshine today. Never mind.

    Thanks Adrian. Hopefully the weather will be better too.

    Thanks Theresa. I prefer wild flowers to the cultivated ones. :-)

    Thanks Trevor. Nosegay; that's a word I've not heard for a while lol

  8. Keith, lovely shots! Isn't it fun taking blooming images!

  9. A lovely collection Keith. Difficult to pick but I think my favourite is the Goat's Beard. I could almost think it was summer looking at these photos....then I look out the window and see the rain and wind and know it must be October ;-)

    Just caught up with your last two posts (not doing well with blogging at the moment) and on the last I loved the Dipper, moths and butterflies and the gorgeous final photo of the Sedge Warbler but hated the idiot walking where he shouldn't and the egg stealers. On the post before, the Avocet and Marsh Harrier was amazing, the Canada Goose and goslings really sweet and the Robin selling RSPB goods was wonderful. You do get some great posers :-)

  10. A lovely set of images. And some vibrant colours there. Excellent work

  11. A lovely selection of images Keith, have a great weekend, it's supposed to be sunny...yeah right:)

  12. thats a good set of images keith, have a good weekend too

  13. Thanks Robin. Yea, great taking them; not so good sorting them out lol

    Thanks Jan. I know just what you mean about blogging. Some days I just can't be bothered. Glad you enjoyed the pictures though.

    Thanks Shaun, and thanks for stopping by.

    Cheers Doug. I don't take much notice of the weather predictions to be honest. I prefer to look out the window. lol
    Enjoy your weekend too.

    Thanks Peter. Have a good one too.

  14. Love these wildflower shots Keith! Looks like summer is in full bloom there!

  15. HI Keith...Some real beauties!!
    I love Ragged Robin have them here!!
    I do like the Goat's Beard one we don't have!!

  16. Nice series! You make weeds look glamorous.

  17. Thanks Sondra. It's lovely when the sun shines and highlights the beauty of nature.

    Thank you Grace. The Goat's Beard is like a giant version of a Dandelion, and the seed head can be about 4 inches. An impressive plant.

    Thanks Linda. I much prefer these plants to cultivated ones. :-)

  18. Hi Keith What a wonderful set of shots. Looking forward to seeing your photos from your 'boys' day away. Have a great weekend. Margaret

  19. Thanks Margaret, glad you enjoyed them.

  20. It's always a surprise to see the word "weed" attached to a flower. Though I know the ox eye daisy causes enough problems, it's not welcome around Yellowstone...

  21. They are all so beautiful. I dont think we have some of these in my part of Canada.

  22. Lovely set of wild flowers, Keith, I especially like the Goat's Beard. Cultivated flowers may be more prominent but these show their beauty as well.

  23. Beautiful wildflowers and lovely images!

  24. Thanks JoLynne. I guess a 'weed' is a plant growing where you don't want it.

    Thanks Lisa.

    Petra, thank you.

    Thanks Eileen.
