“Wildflowers..Madison Indiana”

The wildflowers are still blooming fast ans furious here in Madison Indiana, just about every early species is in full bloom, including Virginia Bluebell, Wild Phlox and Squirrel Corn  all pictured here. The weather has been outstanding and the bloom is amazing the only foreseeable problem has been a lack of moisture and the speed of which the bloom has been progressing.

I can see most of the early bloom past peak by next week and then the later flowers blooming thru the next couple of weeks and then it will probably be gone, usually by that time the early blooms would be peaking, so it looks like the bloom is running a couple weeks ahead of schedule.  I can’t control that just hopefully be out in the woods when it is at it’s peak !!!

Here are three different wildflower images I got earlier today all three are peaking as we speak and hopefully I will be able to get a  few more shots of them thru the weekend, there is heavy rain in the forecast which would actually help some and keep the blooms from drying out.

Clifty Falls is ablaze right now with all the beautiful color palettes that these early season wildflowers have to offer. Ina couple more weeks it will be gone so if you have the chance to hike the park now would be a great time to get out and view this beautiful display of nature before it disappears !!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!

    Such beautiful images Bernie. I was at the Chattanooga Nature Center the other day, wildflowers were blooming like crazy and I thought, man Bernie would love to be here. I can’t wait to get me a macro sometime!

    There is a lot of Phlox where I grew up as Dad was always bringing it in planting it on banks that he didn’t want to mow! 🙂
