Naked Broomrape, what a name!


walking  amongst the forest
atmosphere of living permeates 
not only sight also breath
faint breeze stirs scents
a symphony of perfume
mingling with light
dancing with shadows
an alchemy
inspiring contented delight
~


I love that each year I find new flowers
I was delighted to meet this little beauty yesterday!


for the first time I am joining Gail of Wildflower Wednesday and all her friends. To enjoy more wildflowers, do treat yourself to a visit!

  18. it has such a curious little face on it.

    The image of them all poking up and looking around looks so alive - like they were having a gathering that you wandered into - and after they would take their curious faces and impossible names and go home.

  22. TL- love how these little dudes pop up out of the ground like periscopes; checking out the world to see if they want to add beauty to the surroundings. Great detail in the shot and the poetic words - almost feel I was on the walk with you. Thanks. B

  30. Oh Tammie what a delightful discovery (with an unfortunate name)...perhaps you could hold a blog contest for a new name, more befitting these lovely blossoms!
