You really got some wonderful photos of the Yarrow. Even past the flush of bloom it looks good. Had to finally cut the spent blooms off my whites.Cher Sunray Gardens
The structural nature of those photos reminds me of Blossfeldt!
@Sunray - Cher, sometimes I will dry the yellow ones. I usually deadhead, but have been too busy this summer. @BL - Thanks! Haven't had much time for blogging lately, but wanted to post.
@Patricia - Thanks, I was little tired when I posted, but was thinking similarly and that I should do link to one of your Blossfeldt posts.
Really wonderful photos GS. I like the underside view a lot.
Great perspective! Wow.
Polny kwiaty i tak piękne zdjęcia im zrobiłaś :-). Pozdrawiam
I dearly love your blog header! Your yarrow looks so perfect!
@GWGT - Thanks Donna! I once took a photoshop class where we scanned a bunch of objects on a scanner, which got me looking at the underside of plants. @Aerie-el - Thank you! I love the tree-like formation that the stem forms. @Giga - Many thanks, I have a little bit of the country in my back yard.@Sissy - Thanks, I had a hard time deciding what to do for the header, but have always liked the photo very much!
What a wonderful view--it's always so interesting to see the "architecture" of flowers. It almost looks like roots or a network of veins rather than...whatever it is they are. (What is the word for the thing that holds the blossom up but isn't part of the stem or the flower?)
@Stacy - I thought it might be an umbel, but I turned out to be mistaken when I researched umbel for my blog post.
You are always making me think! I never would have thought to look at my yarrow from that perspective. Thanks for reminding me that some of the best views are not always from the "front" or "top"!
These are some of the most beautiful photos of yarrow that I have ever seen. To see the underbelly in such a light, is so refreshing.
@Cathy and Steve - Thanks for stopping by. I think I'm always looking for patterns and the yarrow is one that I've been drawn to.@The Sage Butterfly - Thank you so much for the compliment. It made my day!
