Blue Eyed Grass

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 25 May 2011 in People & Portrait.

Another native wildflower that grows in our meadow and at the park. Not a true grass, though it looks grass-like. Tiny and sweet.

Just lovely! I like the details inside the flower. Isn't it unusual for such a small flower to have a stem this long?

@Julie Brown: Yes! I believe that is why it is called grass, even though it isn't really a grass. The stem is actually longer.

Knockout texture, Anita! The blues/greens and a touch of lavender - my favorite color palette!

What a delicate and sensitive image. Blue and gold and white and that lovely texture in an image as long and thin and delicate as the flower itself!!!

I love how the tiny flowers are at the very end of blade of "grass" on this plant. They just bloomed here too and I'll have to get them before they are gone all too quickly. This is lovely. The background texture sort of gives the feel of the photo taken during a slight rain drizzle and adds softness to delicate flowers too.
