Flowers in the Grass







Texture: KK Violet by Kim Klassen; Divide at 85% opacity.

When I was walking out in the backyard yesterday, I came across these beautiful flowers growing in the grass.

They were about 5mm in size and in various shades of purple.

I have no idea what sort of flowers they are but they are so pretty (and a good excuse to put off the mowing for a couple of days).

  1. Nikki these are gorgeous! Such sweet little peas. Some grow wild in our large church yard. They're natives aren't they?

    2. Nikki I think it may be a Wooly Glycine, an Australian native pea/legume.

    3. Thanks so much for the link Karen. It think the plant is actually the Glycine Pea as the leaves matched those in the first image. Nikki

  4. So lovely. Nikki! who do you get that pin button right there on your site. I have tried to do it and it doesn't work. If you go to my Pinterest board "photo motos" you will see all of your photos are the only ones I have there. I should rename it "nikki's kicks". hahahahaha

  6. Love these, especially the last one, it's that softness and the light, so delicate that it suits the flower perfectly, well captured and processed :)
