Wild Geranium

The Wildflowers are Here!

Pretty in Purple

The wild geranium marks the boundary betweem spring and summer, so says my reference book, Spring Woodland Flowers of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum. There is a profusion of purple along the paths of the Noe Woods in the Arboretum. Guess we’re on the boundary, so spring lasted about four weeks this year? Sounds about right.

    Excellent composition, Bo. The flower and bud combination works great. The repeated oof flower in the background add to the overall feel and the background is super. Great!

    You’ve certainly elevated the common wildflower to a new level with this excellent composition! Lovely capture.

    The composition is terrrific. I’d “Ditto-head” the rest of the comments in spite of the source of that term.
