A collection of wild plants and their flowers from around the world.
Red wild flowers in springtime abundance in the Rhyl Nature Preserve in Wales. September wild flowers at Whiffen Spit, a walk on a spit of land extending out into the Pacific Ocean from Sooke on Vancouver Island, Canada. Masses of wild flowers, and this wild garlic to add its distinct aroma, distinguished our spring Malham Walk in the Yorkshire Dales of England.Wild flowers in May bloom at the Marken Dyke in Holland. Hurricane Ridge, in the Olympic National Park in Washington, in July had wildlife, wild vistas and wildflowers, including this scalloped onion with its pink blooms (USA). A boat skeleton overgrown with wild roses in May in Copenhagen’s Christiania District, Denmark. Purple heather blooms in the fall in Glenveagh National Park, Ireland.Red flowers blooming on low cactus in October in the mountain near Tafi in Argentina. Wild bromeliad in bloom in March in Santa Rosa National Park in Costa Rica. This place was the most superbly wild place we’ve ever been to in recent history; we even saw a wild jaguar!There wasn’t much in the way of wild flowers in Rajasthan in northern India in February. There was mostly scrubby growth, if any, the one exception being this magnificent agave just outside Kumbalgarh Fort. As agaves are native to the Americas this one was probably planted at some point, but was doing spectacularly well. Wild poppies, blue cornflowers and other small treasures create an array of colour that would inspire many an artist near the village of Giverny in France. Purple wild flowers with a butterfly in Fiskebäckskil in Sweden. More of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Wild.
