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.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
