This week’s challenge over at Sunday Stills is flowers and plants. This is not a subject I find myself photographing very often. With camera in hand I headed out to the pasture to see what I could find.
This plant with it’s beautiful shades of green and purple immediately caught my attention. I have no idea what it is, but I think it is pretty in an understated kind of way.
It certainly is not flamboyant.
Enjoy your Sunday!
The muted shades are very attractive.
Love that first shot.
very nice shots, a flower dose not have to be flamboyant to look nice..:-)
It is a very pretty plant, love the colors. I also have some in my pastures and would love to know what it is. Can anyone identify it?
You did well! I’ve seen that plant on the W side of Oregon…none here on the desert side…don’t know what it is though.
In Kentucky those flowers will color the fields so that the whole field looks purple. Great pictures
Simply beautiful 🙂
Is it in the mint family? The best way to tell is if it’s stem is square.
Great pictures, I love the colors! 😀
Cool plant! The leaves look soft and fuzzy1
Lovely shots….great colours! 🙂
Very good shots. We have fields full of that plant around here, but I don’t know what it is – it makes for an interesting photo shot though.
very soft & gentle photographs you’ve got here
rather lovely 🙂
We have a whole bunch of those growing wild too. I have not idea the name of the flower but they are really pretty close up.
Well done! I was thinking it may be a Lamium of some kind..hard to tell..whatever it is you did great:)
Ahhh, that’s called “Heal All”, it is in the mint family and it’s Latin name is Prunella vulgaris. As it’s name indicates it’s an all around wonderful herb, but very invasive!
peacefulacres – Thank you! Good job Joan. It is definitely invasive 😉 I wish my sheep would eat it.
Here in NW Ohio it’s called False Nettle. It’s a weed in our fields. I do like the maroon/purple shades though, even if it is a weed!
