Pink Prairie Posies

Mid-June is a time when there are so many wildflowers blooming on the prairie that it is amazing and impossible to see them all. This summer, I have been attempting to photograph the common flowers and favorites, and also to find and photograph some I haven’t seen before.

 The four photos of Showy Prairie Primroses above show them at different stages.
I notice that there are cycles of predominant colors. 
There was a white cycle, followed by a yellow cycle cycle and of course these overlap and mingle.
The Prairie Gentian or Prairie Sabatia has a tough five-petaled pink flower.
It is one of my favorites to press because it keeps its shape and color well.

Wild roses come in several styles and shades from pale pink to this bright color. 
 The Pasture rose is a simple flower with  four petals and a yellow center.

Mimosa and Sensitive Briar are related although sensitive is a ground plant and mimosa
is a flowering tree that grows wild in pastures, woods and fence lines.

Both have a sphere-shaped pink flower with bright yellow tips of pollen that make them resemble miniature fireworks.
Sweetpea and vetch are also  pinks of the season.

Coneflowers from white to dark purple are Echinacea.

Pink, Pink, Pink Prairie Posies!
