A patch of foxtails in a ditch with some errant wheat stalks growing amidst them.

I really should dive down into the depths of my hard drive, I believe there are a few floral shots that needs a bit of processing and perhaps they even deserve to be posted. For now, here's two I took 3 months ago.
1st one is a borderline close-up / macro of a flower most of us (including me) normally just pass by. What it is? I have no clue, but it looked nice and interesting when I stuck me head near it.

The 2nd is an English dogwood - Philadelphus coronarius.

Nice. I especially like the colour of the out of focus area and how it blends so well with the flowers.

The wheat and the tares, for anyone with a biblical drift.

Don't know what this is. Saw it beside a mountain road.

Great colours, dpc!
It's a sort of Chamerion angustifolium, also known as Fireweed.

Potted sunflowers on my deck last summer. The second picture has had a bit of soft focus added.

Not sure if this qualifies for flora, but I wanted to post it somewhere- Its tree sap.

Trying out Topaz' new Impression software which gives a 'painterly' effect to photographs. Not something I'd use a lot but it does produce some interesting results.

1. Original cropped photo of sunflower
2. Same photo uncropped and with Impression applied
