Macro Monday

I thought I would do a post about some of the common wildflowers here in the UK this week. Some of them are so common they are often thought of as weeds but they can still be beautiful.

A Wild Rose


Red clover

the (very) Common Daisy

the (slightly less) Common Orchid

  1. O so very beautiful! Especially love the detail of the buttercup!

  2. exquisite... would be lovely to share with I Heart Macro too:-) I am passionate about "weed/wildflowers"... often I prefer them to cultivars... something so appealing about their tenacity and often tender appearance, year after year.

  3. I enjoy seeing wildflowers around the world, many we have too. Your common daisy is tinged with pink - that I like!

  4. Beautiful photos, I especially like the red clover :)

  5. Wonderful close up photos. I am just experimenting with my new camera to see if I can get the same effect.

  6. Thank you for reminding us to look for beautiful flowers outside the garden. Makes me want to walk out and pay attention! Even better, thanks for the id--some unfamiliar to me. And let's not forget the great photos either!

  7. Your close up of the orchid is gorgeous. I love seeing the wild flowers about!

  8. I would be happy to see these wildflowers in my garden. Your photos are gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing again with Today's Flowers.
    Wishing you a very happy week,

  9. Gorgeous, colorful flowers! It's amazing how beautiful, intricate and diverse each blossom is!
