You do realize that most of your pics would make excellent ID 'tools', right?
Awesome photo! And just for sheets and niggles I'll say, suksdorfii!
It never gets old.
yes i realize that. thanks to you & Cedars, i have a new bag of tricks & a full-blown obsession to use them toward that end. part of my promote-hypography-as-the-place-to-go-to-get-what-no-one-else-has-while-increasing-my-own-knowledge plan. we discussed that a bit as a goal for the wildflower social group(s), but as i say that seems not to have worked out & i thought i'd give a thread a try. if you see an opportunity to better position our wildflower pics or descriptions as go-to resources at hypog, by all means drop me a note or just post it up here. as you see, i hop madly from subject to subject and often don't finish what i start.
i have some more seeds still to photograph, and those wild green mountain lupine seedlings i started are getting the first primary leaves. so many flowers, so little time. . . . . . . . ..
ps suksdorfii seed pods explode when still green and touched. if they're ripe that is, which only 1 of 5 pods i picked was. picked too soon, the seeds don't ripen, get there too late & they have already burst out. timing is so critical i'm finding in collecting wildflower seeds. maybe i'll tie a little bag on a suksdorfii pod & see if i have better results. yep; no such thing as too much suksdorfii.
pps: this blog entry has wildflower id info unlike any to be found. >> http://hypography.co...ny-trumpet-224/
