          Reply to R0bert. This is common yarrow. Yep. Super tiny. And yep it’s supposed to be white. 🙂 A testament to my post processing skills. I’m slowly getting better but this shot is about 1 1/2 years old. I knew even less then. I have dozens and dozens of flower pics. As I searched the archives I was surprised to discover this is my only shot of a wild flower.

      Awesome Leanne, and you’ve helped me identify mine as a species of Tiarella.

      Glad the image helped your ID Robert! We have a great site for BC, where you show where you found the flower, what time of year, etc and it offers a few options of what it can be. Unfortunately, very localized but there might be something like that for your area. Thanks for the throwdown.

      Among the clover, “mane” mushrooms.   Hmmm….are fungi flowers?  Probably not, but….

      I used the PS Profile Artistic #1 and it turned the green (clover lower left, and top background triangle) brownish.    I did place the maple leaf, but wished I had placed it more at an angle with a better chance of making it appear it had fallen there.  Anyway I was drawn by the shape of these mushroom.  I was at ground level about 3 feet from a dirt bike race track on which teenagers were competing.  I thought it was great when one kid came over and asked what kind of mushroom I was photographing.   He said his mother planted them at his home and ate them!
