Evening Primroses for melllow Yellow Monday



While out driving yesterday we drove past this clump of unusual shaped of Evening Primroses growing in a shallow ditch beside a church at crossroads near Dipper Harbour and Mace's Bay. The first glimpse I saw of them reminded me of windmills on a stick that we used to play with as kids. I asked my husband to turn and go back and when he asked "What are we looking for I replied, "flowers that look like windmills", and when we got back to the location and he saw them he knew what I had meant. I hope you can see the similarity also.

They do look like that. And so very pretty. I don't think I've ever seen any quite like them.

Your second picture does remind one of a windmill or pinwheel. Thanks for sharing.

I also commented on a few other posts below.

I couldn't help notice you have 63 covered bridges in New Brunswick. Here in Kentucky we have 13 left. I've photographed some of them before with a different camera but I want to start all over so as to capture them with my new one.
