Macro Monday "Go Figure"



These lovely flowers are found growing in pastures and fields. I don't know what they are, but I would love to have some in my garden.  They can thrive in the wild without a problem, but I'm sure the minute I gave them some TLC in my garden, they would wilt and die immediately. Go figure !!!!

I would never guess these were a wild flower. They do look like they would be a flower hard to care for. Go figure, Mother nature sure has us fooled! Nice photo's..

Wow never seen like this in our wild area here. And I think they like to stay wild, lol! TLC is not there cup of tea. ^_^ but I get so interested in this flower hmmm hope there is a seed somewhere. ^_^

So glad Out On The Prairie knew what they were. I'd love some in my garden as well. They are dainty and 'wedding like'. :)
Lovely shots Mickie!

Thanks so much for your comment on my photo blog. I haven't posted to that one in awhile. I usually reserve it for my better shots and haven't felt I've had 'the shot' to post in awhile. :)

I am often bringing home wild flowers from abandoned parking lots. Sometimes I am rewarded, sometimes not, but it's always worth a shot. They are so pretty.
