Tree Bouquet

Clover bouquet growing in a tree.  Canon EOS 40D, f/5, 1/250 s, ISO 320, 24-105@40mm.

In a blog post the other day I mentioned how I find most flower pics to be pretty boring (okay, “boring” is a little harsh… maybe “somewhat not interesting” might be better).  Well, after having said that, here’s my second post with flowers in the last two days.

I think this one is a little different though.  We came across this tree while hiking over the weekend with a bunch of flowers (I think they’re clovers) growing right in the fork of the two main branches.  It looked really strange — like someone had placed them there deliberately.  As far as we could tell though, the plant was growing right into the moss and debris collecting on the tree.  Pretty cool.

    The flower is wood sorrel – you can eat the leaves, tastes like apple peel – but not too much as it’s a source of oxalic acid

      Ahh! Cool… from the leaves they looked a bit like clover but I was wondering why the flowers looked different. Maybe they’re related?

      I’ll have to giv the leaves a try next time I see them!
