Today's Flowers



I took these photos at a state park in the north Georgia mountains. I have no idea what they are. If you'd like to see more pictures of flowers visit Luiz and join in the fun.

Very beautiful wildflowers! We call the blue ones in the first picture cornflowers. I do not know the name of the red ones, but they grow in traditional Austrian peasant's gardens :)

Denise said...

Hi, Dot
They are beautiful, bright colours and intense, this in enough. great contribution.
Thanks for sharing
hugs, Denise

Leora said...

The blue ones look like cornflower/bachelor buttons. Can't figure out the daisy-like red/yellow ones. But I love the top photo, because you have a bit of both colors/flowers in it.

People with Cameras said...

shutterhappyjenn said...

Jan said...

I also think the blue ones are batchlor buttons, a fave from my childhood. These are both great photos.

These are gorgeous! That first one almost seems like a painting or posed photo. Really nice.

Sherry said...

Oh, these are so pretty! I love the blue ones.

Carletta said...

The top image evokes country and I really like it!
They are all wonderful together.
I believe the red one is Gaillardia - blanket flower.

Abraham Lincoln said...

Your flowers are beautiful. I think one might be a relative of an Indian Blanket. Not sure. Mine are up at Thunder Maker.

June said...

These are some awesome photos! You have no idea what they are...while I'm here thinking I have no idea how you captured such a shot: depth, dimension, and perfect color!

Marcos Santos said...

For me, just know that they are beautiful, and your photos are great.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Yep, bachelor buttons (Centaurea cyanus) and blanket flowers (Gaillardia). I can't help it -- I'm a wildflower geek. ;-)

Paz said...

Lovely flower shots!

Mike said...

Nice collection of wildflowers!

Kahshe Cottager said...

This is a good time to catch colour in the fields! These are beautiful examples of what might be found! We get the cornflowers growing wild here but the other ones I have only seen as cultivated flowers. Lovely shots Dot!

mrsnesbitt said...

Oh very lovely! Nature has a wonderful way of deciding which colours go together!

Malyss said...

I don't know for the red ones, but your blue flowers are called in France "BLEUET"(bleu means blue).My dictionnary translates that as cornflower;
They were a pretty symbol in former times, because they were the symbol of the french veterans soldiers of the first world war;

Reader Wil said...

I don't know the names of the plants either. Though the blue flowers are called cornflowers, like maria says.

Jules said...

What a lovely job you did.
i always wonder what people think when the see photographers crawling around at ant level. LOL

Susan Kelly Skitt said...

Simply stunning Dot! I'd love to gather these flowers and put them in a vase on my table!

I needed the beauty today. Thanks for visiting History Is Elementary and for the kind words.

Denise said...

These are beautiful photos. I am so glad I saw your site advertised over at Fishing Guy's.

Gramma L said...

These are beautiful. They remind me of a beautiful bouquet of springs flowers. No clue on what they are - I'll just call them wildflowers.

Kelli said...

I love wildflowers and the blue and yellow together is so pretty!

Neal said...

Those are beautiful. Wouldn't it be nice to have a house with those planted all over the roof? :)

fishing guy said...

Dot: That first one is a weed that grows wild along the roadway and are very envasive. I had the Cornflower on last week and it is very pretty when tamed. The second one is a beautiful wildflower with great colors.

said...

This is so very pretty,it reminded me of Julie Andrews singing in the fields in The Sound of Music.Wonderful shot.

piedmontperspective said...

I love wildflowers too and these are beautiful! Wonderful contribution, Dot.
