Today's Flowers # 73

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time.


This is from June when the Wild Blackberries were in blossom with a visitor.


Do you recognize the Red Clover in all it's beauty.


You can get really close to see this beautiful flower. The leaves are also pretty cool.

My wifes favorite the daisy. These are wild but still a great flower.


You can see a lot of great flower captures above.

They are all wonderful blooms. I love the daisies too, the red clover is a pretty color and I can't wait to see my blackberries come back.
Great shots.

Beautiful!

Thanks for sharing. (Especially the Clover photos!)

Denise said...

A lovely series of flowers and the clover leaves are beautiful too.

These are great. For some reason the red clover made me think of rhodies. Maybe because this a.m. I have watched my poor rhodies braving winter, and they seem so very small.

Beautiful shots.

Great macros Tom. I'd have purple fingers later in the season grazing on blackberries.

I remember flowers and colours!

I love wild daisies and clover too.
Both are loved by bees as well.
Clovers are a valuable survival food, as they are high in protein, widespread, and abundant. Dried flower heads can also be steeped in hot water for a healthful, tasty tea.

Lovely pictures.
Happy New Year,
Gisela

Nice shots here. I knew I liked your wife, I too love Daisies....yes, I took my flower photos with my new camera, still practicing. Thanks for the encouragement!!

The daisy is especially nice. You captured the light well. I agree the Clover flower is underrated. It does need to be studied up close.

I wonder why they call those red clover? Looks purple to me.
Daisies are my favorite, too!
How I long for those long summer days!!!
