Wildflowers fascinate me, as I am sure they do everyone! To see Namibia's Damaraland alive with flowers everywhere was a delightful bonus on my return to Elephant-Human Relations Aid (EHRA)project. The land normally would be drying out after the usual Dec-Feb rainy season, but late showers into early May kept the country alive.
As I looked out on the landscape, Islamic or Oriental carpet patterns came to mind. Delicate silky grass seed-heads swirled over the undulating land glowing with the intensity of the low morning or evening sun, interwoven with dots or occasional splatters of the brilliant colour of tiny blooms.
Driving into EHRA Base Camp. Late afternoon and low light turns the grass tassels golden.
Interspersed amongst the grass are small wildflowers.
Here are a few flowers for my lady readers.
Even the tiniest flower in the pics is so beautifully formed and coloured. They are offered and dedicated to all the wonderful, talented and soulful women I have met out there in the Blogosphere.
These I present to you, my valuable lady readers! Comment and choose one and I will dedicate that picture for you by adding your name and link back to your site under the photo.
