And I will call you...


I have no idea what to title this one since I dunno what these are. I failed! Crap! Anyone? They're from the Truckee/Tahoe California area. I knew what they were at some point but alas, nope, not anymore. Well then! Today's Flower

A Clarkia of some kind? I can't tell--its kinda dying. :-P

I´m sorry - I can´t help but the photo is really lovely.

Rosebay willowherb? (If that grows in your part of the world)

Guess you may have to settle calling them nice.

I have no idea, but they are beautiful!

Very pretty and a lovely colour, whatever their name!

They are beautiful, wish I could name them for you but I have a hard time identifying my own. Have a great week.

They look a little like Larkspur, but I don't think that is what they are. Very lovely image of a beautiful flower whatever it is~

I second the rosebay willowherb, but since you are in America, I will call it fireweed. - same thing, different name. Personally, I prefer the English name.

Sweet image, great colors to! ;)

Silly Nutcase, they are the genus 'Purpleus Idonhaveaclueus' ;-)

Very pretty. I like how some of the stamen are curved back towards the flower.

Clytie said...

I'm thinking some kind of fireweed, but Woody said it best - Purpleus Idonhaveaclueus! :=}

I would also guess fireweed. That was one plant in the Pacific Northwest I was delighted and surprised to learn is native (as it's a weedy, edgy, disturbance-loving thing). Nice shot. =)

Whatever they are called, they look delectable. Glad you snapped them to let us see too.

I believe that's a wallflower, which is a California native.
