White Shooting Stars


a forest walk reveals
spring flowers scattering the earth
for my first time i did find
shooting stars cloaked in mostly white

treasures
~


some a lovely mix of cream and violet




more commonly they are a vibrant violet pink

  6. Tammie, I thought of you when Bob & I hiked the trail yesterday in search of Calypso Orchids. No luck! I found two that were withered, probably by the snow a week ago. I'd be thrilled to see a Shooting Star, no matter the color. Yours are so delicate - great shots.

  9. Those whites are gorgeous! I first saw white ones last summer and they were pretty, but these that are mostly white but have accents of color are spectacular!

  13. There's just something about spring flowers. I remember as a kid roaming on the prairie to find Indian Paintbrush and Bitterroot flowers. We would even find an occassional cactus in bloom!
