Fragrance of Mullein~


have you ever smelled
a mullein flower
it's scent is guaranteed
to make something inside
swirl and twirl
with a need to lean in close
for another inhalation
~


to enjoy wonderful macro photography

  1. Incredible macros, very clear!

    I don't think I've ever seen an old or new barn on your blog, but if you like photographing them, come join my new Tuesday meme opening Monday evenings called 'Old Barns'. I'd love to see some from Montana!

  5. Hi Tammie,

    Missed you yesterday at SS! I've never heard of this flower but it is just gorgeous! Went on a hour and a half hike with my 11 yr old son yesterday and thought of you as we examined the myriad kinds of mushrooms on the trail.

    Have a wonderful week!

  14. Hi Tammie,
    I absolutely have no idea what that plant is ... I don't know that I have ever seen one! It truly is beautiful though ~ the way you have shown it with your camera and your words!
    Best wishes,

  17. I just love Mullien's fuzy leafs! I know I have smelled their flowers before, but I can not recall the scent at this time. I will have to search for one again!

    I bet many people have missed the beauty of this lovely plant because it is thought of as a weed. Lovely capture!

  22. Oooo i've never smelled one..but now i want to :o)

    these photos are just amazing, infact your pics never cease to amaze me..there is so much life, still, in your images.

    when i was looking up poultices for various things recently i came across some info on old medicinal uses of mullein. apparently a poultice of the leaves steeped in vinegar and water soothes inflammed and painful skin conditions. and also that the thick soft leaves were used to line the shoes of many poorer folks, to provide extra warmth during the winter months.

  29. I went back to the mountain wwhere I saw the mullien plant, it has become a very small plant, and I don't think there were flowers.
