  2. You're amazing, Carol! I posted this, and inside of 30 minutes you have already posted a comment. I suspect you have some kind of link to your cell phone that notifies you of new posts - just guessing :) Anyway, I really appreciate the comment. Thanks. Hank

  5. 'Wilgenroosje' (Epilobium angustifolium is one of favourite natives over here in Belgium. Often disliked, because of it's creeping roots, and hence considered a weed, but I really love it.

  6. I know it's supposed to be wordless and all... but I would like to know the name of the central flower, please. The one with the purple, reflexed blooms. It's so adorable and dainty, I am afraid it is going to have to go into my wish book for when I finally have a permanent garden. :)

    Lovely collage!

  7. @ Meredith, just the post is intended to be wordless - well almost - but the comments can be as wordy as you like, especially when you say nice things as you did here.

    All the flowers are from my Yukon Wildflower photo collection, and the names of each are visible by a mouse rollover of the image. Also if you click on any one of them, an enlarged image of it appears.

    The centre one is a Frigid Shooting Star. Although you're not likely to find them in your local nursery outlet, seeds are available from a number of sources, including www.easywildflowers.com

    Thanks so much for the comment. Hank

  11. Just a beautiful collection ... what lovely wildflowers you have there. Love to see photos like these and find out what the natives look like ... I sometimes get tired of seeing the same old flower photos!

  12. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
