Default Some fun with flowers

Nothing spectacular lol but my first time having some fun with flowers. I was over in my neighbors yard lol... my other neighbors must have wondered what the heck I was doing.

I didn't resize them. probably should











So I only know the names of the daffodils and the dandelion lol... anyone else know what the rest are? the last two are weeds lol.

Nicely done!

Third shot is of a grape hyacynth (sp?), 4th and 5th are bleeding hearts.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of those around here soon. However, I believe the forecast is offering a chance of snow early next week (which really sucks because today was around 20 c).

OH thanks I am terrible with flower names.

Really snow AGAIN for you guys? UGH. I'm coming up there in June... it better be done by then LOL.

Yeah I guess these pics aren't bad for only my second day with the camera lol

LOL! The only reason I figured that out was because when I photograph something, I try and name it afterwards. I don't know how many hours I've spent combing through pics of spiders, flowers, birds and so-on on the internet attempting to find names for some of the things I've photographed.

I think the first couple of flowers are of white daffodils and the third from last is a dandilion. 2nd from last is (I think) a type of violet???

The very last pic is dead nettle (wildflower or weed, take your pick), can't find that blue flower anywhere in my wildflower books or on the Net. It almost looks like Wild Comfrey but that has five petals. Pretty little flower, though!

I do the same thing, Andrew - just gotta identify whatever flower, bird or bug I shoot. Drives my sister crazy when I say things like, "Oh look, a Flag-tailed Spinyleg." (That's a dragonfly, by the way.)
