Hi Gregg. Your sunflowers are so pretty. They are always such a cheerful flower with that sunny yellow. I love the shot of the Monarch. I have not saw a one here this summer and I cannot figure it out. I hope the spraying for the gypsy months here by the county did not harm them.
Lovely natives! I am a big fan of sunflowers. Love the bright yellows these bring to the fall garden!
Never heard of that sunflower species, but when you're in the Sunflower State, you have more...our's quite down and out without any real rain. Nice, narrow leaf. But the last one steals the show with the spikyness - Leavenworth Eryngo.
That shot of the Sunflowers is frame-worthy. They're so cheerful, and you did a great job of capturing them in their prime.
Gorgeous macro shots Greggo! Simply wonderful. Happy Wildflower Wednesday.~~Dee
Greg, I've been off blogging for awhile and returned to my site today and I've got a random ad popping up at the very top of my page when I view the blog? I can't see it on my phone or Ipad, just on my desktop. I checked other Blogger users, like you, and they don't have it and it doesn't seem to be in my template. Are you seeing it too on your own blog and do you see it when you look at my page?Jim
Impressive photos...I am loving the Eryngium leavenworthii. Happiest of gardening to you!
Love that eryngium leavenworthii. It looks so much more wild and menacing (and yet is still delicate-looking, somehow) than the garden cultivars we see around here.
Love the color of that Ernygo!
This is such a great time of year for wildflowers and for the pollinators that enjoy them! I have got to get me some Joe Pye weed!
Leavenworth eryngo is my favorite, it makes me want to touch it, even though it may be prickly.
They are very relaxing images, Greg. Pretty too.
The Leavenworth photo is striking. All are great but that is such a pop of color and so crisp. Great shot!!!!!
Thanks for leaving any comments, they are always welcomed. Sorry I had to add word verification as spam was becoming a huge problem. Greggo,
