Tired of wildflowers yet?

8 posts in this topic

I'm not - so here are a couple more! These are from the woods by my Mom's house in Chisago City. This is the first year I've gotten a little more serious about photographing these little wonders and they are sure fascinating! C&C welcome..

Nodding Trillium

Here's a full shot of the Nodding trillium - I was hoping to get blue sky in the trees - but it was too late in the day and this shot is facing west. I had one earlier in the day, but it was so windy that the flowers were always a mess!

Very nice Jackie!....certainly not tired of wild flowers "Ever" grin....I saw these same plants this morning but aren't near as "advanced" as the southern folks' woods grin...trilliums are in the bud form...pulpits are just popping out of the ground....ferns are just starting to break the surface here also.... within a week things will change here!...

Thanks everyone. The one thing about wildflowers is their short blooming season. I need to get out in the woods at Mom's about every 4 or 5 days in order to get the next batch of whatever! We're waiting for the "Showy Orchis" hopefully we'll get a few of those this year.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
