We went for a walk along a bike path that follows the railroad line to the harbor after photographing some graffiti in New Haven. All of these flowers colored the way and took us from hardcore urban grime to the freedom of the sea.

Today's Flowers

  1. Where would we be without little moment of living color like these in the midst of all the metal and concrete?! Many people might say they don't matter, but if they were all gone...something indefinable would be missing...

  15. Don't you just love chickery?? They are like little droplets of the sky along the pathways. Heck, I even like thistle even though it is prickly, if it is along the roadside. I have even tried to grow Verbascum but it doesn't like my garden. My friend said I was too nice to it. Ha...If you saw my garden you wouldn't think that. It would fit right in.

  20. Great eye candy for the path. I'm not totally sure but the plant in the last shot looks to me like a weed we have here in Washington (state).

  21. These are beautiful wild flowers! We just don't see a lot of them here because of the heat and no rain.

  26. AS Mike said above, this makes it clear that our little time of meddling with things will pass and Nature will ultimately reclaim what's hers. A little different seeing the "wild" against the backdrop of the "urban" rather than the other way around.

  27. A day should be little bit of each - and yours obviously was.

  28. Love the contrast on the first one. Soft flower:harsh background.

    Oh! It seems so blended with nature and quite hard to believe, that it embraces the urban boundaries..:)

    I liked the colors that trailed your path to the tunnel of freedom!

    Nice shots, well captured and loved the mix of old and new, what we have and what we like, the hue and the colours..hmm..!

    Nostalgic, I should say!

    Beautiful, scenic spectrum of beauty, of nature!

  32. It always amazes me that these beauties can co-exist with the noise, dirt, etc. And keep their 'cheerful' countenances!

  34. I really like that contrast in the first shot. Tender, yellow flowers with the backdrop of the rusty support and the train.
