May: Wild Flowers

As I commented last week, I do love a carpet of wild flowers in a landscape so was very pleased to see Jude has Wild Flowers as her theme this month.

This week it’s time travel to Romania about a decade ago. First up, a wild orchid – not a brilliant image as I had no macro lens:

A veritable carpet of wild flowers, a very common sight in the fields:

Similar flowers carpet the ground behind this Wooden Church in Maramures:

And in the land surrounding this painted church in Bucovina, plenty of wild flowers:

Hope you have enjoyed my wild flowers with a view! We may be off to Turkey for next week’s offering, or maybe remain in the UK? See more wild flowers here.

  1. The lone orchid worked well for me, Sue, macro lens or not.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I also love the orchid – what a colour! Must admit I was taken by the churches in the other photos, lovely to see them surrounded by wild flower meadows and mown pathways.

  3. Splendid buildings as background to the flowers. And what a colour for the orchid. A feast – and unusual for you to have more than one image. Watch out, or I’ll expect it!

  4. Great shots Sue!
    Lovely orchid but I adore the last shot.

  5. Can’t get cross at such a gorgeous wild orchid. Now what will Jude’s theme be when you’re in Poland, Sue? X

  6. I wished you lived nearby to teach me a bit about photography. I just use a basic Lumix digital and know very little about that. My husband offers to help but that would be like it was years ago learning to drive from my mother. Risky to a relationship.:0)

  7. So beautiful Sue 🙂 How wonderful to see a wild orchid too!!

  8. SO hard to capture those fields of wildflowers Sue – but you did a great job. Having seen them I can feel your joy !

    • Sue

      Many thanks, Tina! It was so lovely seeing such an abundance of flowers in the wild, like going back to my early schooldays when we walked to school and flowers in the fields and hedgerows would be a common sight…..

  9. That’s a different kind of orchid and what a glorious colour, love it. Looks like an interesting place to travel too, they are haystacks in the field aren’t they?

    • Sue

      That orchid was a glorious colour, Gilly! And yes, they are haystacks…. We went to Romania nearly a decade ago (doesn’t seem possible) and it was like going back a couple of hundred years – no intensive farming, everything hard manual labour. The grass cut using scythes, horses and carts the main transport, people out hoeing the fields …..

  10. Lovely little medieval looking church and so picture perfect with the wild flowers surrounding it. I also love the colour of the orchid, I thought it was an iris till I read the text.

  12. Lovely photos, Sue. The wild orchid is the queen of the show. 🙂

  13. oh these are very beautiful, I especially love the little medieval church but fields of flowers are so uplifting.

  14. Lovely! How did you like Romania?

  15. Love that orchid anyway – and all the others as well. The little painted church is a gem.
