Well, I love flowers, especially wildflowers... and I love purple (really love purple)... so it's no wonder I LOVE these purple wildflowers. :-) Ironweed is the common name for Vernonia Baldwinii. Kinda sounds like a lady's name, huh? Ms. Baldwinii, but you may call me Vernonia. hehe... sorry, I'll stop now. Hey, lighten up... we're looking at flowers. Besides... we're looking at PURPLE flowers! It just doesn't get any better.

Now, go strolling through your fields looking for wild flowers (then you won't need auto collision estimating software), and then post your photos and join in Today's Flowers by clicking on the badge below. All the beautiful flowers are sure to make you smile. :-D

I don't know Miss Baldwinii, but I think I'd like to. She's lovely.

PS, re your question, his is a DSC H50 with 15X zoom.


I have only heard this flower called Ironweed but I like Vernonia much better. Beautiful shots.

I love that color!


One of my favorites!
You've captured their detail and just how different the color is up close from the fields of purple.


Another nice wildflower from Missouri...and a purple one to boot.


Now I know their REAL name--thanks, my purple friend.

Happy Labor Day too!

Beautiful purple flower.
Thank you for your participation.


These photos of your Miss Vernonia Baldwinii definitely make me smile, and so does your commentary. Thanks Misty and have a great week.


Very Cute! I love purple flowers as well. I just redecorated my room and have a new bedspread with purple flowers all over it i can't recall the name of the flower but they are puff like flowers. i was also able to find a nice lamp with light purple shade with a darker purple stitching. I simply love it.


So gorgeously vibrant!
