I think these flowers might be monkeying around. Then again, flora isn’t my forte – which is why I’m grateful to have you lot. I can traipse around in the wild (or domestic) looking for pretty plants to photograph, and then come back to my experts.
I love you guys.
There aren’t so many flowers in late September, but these were happily blooming along the Iron Goat Trail.
These look like little purple lions to me, roaring in the face of impending winter. Life is harder up here than it is in the Puget Lowland. It snows deep and often. Everything erupts in the short summer, taking advantage of every second of sunlight.
Several of these were busy getting their bloom-time in while they could. Absolutely lovely.
I’m so glad evolution headed in the direction of flowers. Regular plants are beautiful and all, and some of them can be quite fascinating, but there’s nothing quite so showy as flowers.
Makes you wonder what it’s been up to on other worlds, eh?
