It wasn't until I started taking photos like a mad women that I realized the tiny beauty in the world. Through my lens I have discovered such amazingly gorgeous flowers and tiny things. This post is kind of a departure from my succulents but I wanted to show you what I have found. I don't know the name of all of them but if anybody knows let me know. A bunch of these flower shots were taken around the Folsom lake area. It's the closest largest lake near Sacramento, CA.
I believe that these are called Lupine. I find it so facinating when I take pictures. I take lots and lots of the same thing from many different angles. The more photos I take the more chance that at least one will be amazing. Hopefully!
I bet that people think I may be crazy jamming my camera into the weeds. But the tiniest flowers are so pretty. At first my husband Stan thought I was pretty silly until he saw the photos on my computer. Ha ha!
I found this interesting weed in the grass near the river at Coloma, California. We were visiting the place where gold was discovered and the gold rush started here in California. The name of this one is Claytonia perfoliata.
This flower I found while we were hiking in the Sierra's with Stan and my best friend Lorna and her husband Dave. What a beautiful area!
I think this is a type of clover. I love the little hairs on the stem and around the bottom. And pink isssss my favorite color.
Last but not least is this pretty white flower I found among the weeds. What I didn't realize until I saw it on my computer were the tiny bugs on this flower. Crazy how small they are. Cindy at Bug Safari will like this and maybe she can name them.
So I hope you enjoyed my foray into the world of weeds. Nothing exciting going on in Roseville lately except for the fog. It's been as thick as pea soup. Also my poor little Scout had to have 4 teeth pulled yesterday. She broke one in half and we thought it was going to be just the one but when he got in there he found she had some dental disease and had to pull 4. She even has stitches in her little mouth. Poor baby!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Enjoy!
