Wildflowers out of James Island

Aren't they beautiful, almost surreal?
I have no idea what kind of flowers these are

And they look like lost red trumpets out of a fairy book

Wildflowers on a bush with beautiful colors and interesting geometric shapes

This is a close up of a Yucca plant flower

Hundreds of little white bells are growing on a Yucca plant

The whole Yucca plant with the flower bunch

These wildflower photos are made in that little park area out of James Island, where I was yesterday afternoon. See also my post from yesterday.

Love the Yucca plant and the
little white blooms. They seem
so serene, so pure, so white
especially set against the green
back ground. Are you still using
film or have you gone digital.
Great photos, also like your choice
of music. Some of my favorites.

Great photos. I really like the series of photos of the Yucca plant. I had no idea what one looked like - so really enjoyed going from a close-up - to a big group of flowers - to the whole plant.

Hi double "d",

Thanks for your visit again and for your kind comment. I switched to digital some years ago, but still have my film SLRs. I can't let go so easy.:-)

Hi Patty,

Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you like the flowers, special the Yucca. Me too, I never have seen that before for real and there were so many of those plants blooming.

beautiful colours all make some incredble images. I don't know what they're called but they are beautiful.

Your wildflowers are so pretty and much much different from the wildflowers of British Columbia... if I found those in the forest, I would be amazed.
Sue, your photos are amazing, colorful, and so clear! Very nice.

Thanks Michele,

for this nice comment. I think these wildflowers are more flowers from the South than of the North. :-)

Anna said...

Wow Susanne, never seen those before, I guess because I never been on the James Island, lol. Thanks for sharing, I really enjoyed them. Anna :)

Thanks for commenting.

Hi, I just saw your blog and beautiful photos. I wanted to tell you about about the flowers you did not know the names of. The pink "fluffy" one looks like a bloom from a mimosa tree and the yellow and pink blooms are lantana. I am from Texas and they are quite common here.

Hi Bonnie,

thank you so much for visiting my blog, nice to meet you!

And thanks also for your information about those flowers. Mimosa, yes, I was thinking to that name, because of the leafs of the tree.

I'm learning all the time new things here on my blog.:-)
