Do you find that some flowers look strange when they’re growing? Take for example this Queen’s Anne Lace below. It’s currently unwrapping itself in such a way that it looks like the letters T and I. Also, did you notice that each little flower petal looks like a bug?
It’s so very strange. Typically you see a little bud that grows big and eventually opens up into a flower. But not Queen Anne – nope, she has to be different. The good thing is I like different. Different is fun to photograph.
Moving away from Queen’s Anne Lace, over a bridge to the meadow on the other side, I spotted these purple loosestrife flowers. I love how they pop against the pale grasses behind them.
As I walked up to the high school track something jumped away from me into the bushes.
When I took a closer look I saw this Carolina grasshopper sitting on a leaf. I was able to get a couple of photos before he got nervous and jumped further into the greenery. I was so happy to end my walk with this find.
