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!

Nice, Jackie!

I never get tired of wildflowers. The trillium and jack-in-the-pulpit are a week or two away up here. smile

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.

    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!
