Wild Flowers: Weekly Photo Challenges

Again I am up to combining themes… this week We Drink/Pixel adventures is looking for photos on plants or flowers and Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack is looking for wild…

Here is my contribution…


Wild flowers – thistles

Some lovely thistles… can you spot the bee?


Dandelion – a wild weed that grows anywhere

Dandelion ~ Author Unknown ~

There was a dandelion,

With lovely, fluffy hair,

That glistened in the sunshine,

And in the summer air.

And oh! This pretty dandelion

Soon grew old and grey,

And, sad to tell!

Her charming hair,

Blew many miles away.

Be sure to follow the links to see more or post your own 🙂

Stay tuned…

    I love dandelions…your picture and poem have reinforced my reasons why!

    • Thanks. I remembered that poem from supply teaching… I thought it fit perfectly. Glad I could find it on the Internet to add to this post.
      Dandelions are best when not in your yard 😉 they are interesting to photograph.

  5. Looking at their form the mystery plant has to be an orchid?
