STOPS ALONG THE WAY

PRAIRIE SMOKE AND SUNFLOWER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

28 Comments

Two more wildflowers that I look forward to seeing each summer. The flower in the first photo gets it’s name from the pistils in the middle of the flower which develop into heads of seeds with long fuzzy hairs. They look like smoke. The vibrant yellow of the sunflower attracts me as it did the bee. Like many other areas this summer, we are experiencing drought-like conditions, you may notice the heat stress on the flower’s leaves.

  5. Two beautiful species! I looked up prairie smoke because I often visit the Saskatchewan prairies. Turns out that I have seen it in the wild, but it was called by its other name (three-flowered avens). I will call it ‘prairie smoke’ from now on. 🙂

  7. Beautiful flowers, Belinda. I wish the weather wasn’t of such extremes too hot/cold, too wet/dry. Invokes a lot of anxiety!
