Fences and Phlox

Update: I have given you the wrong name for the flower's....they are dame's rocket and not phlox.
I've always know them as phlox all my life but they are not.
Thanks to Tom the Backroads Traveller for the correct identification.
However, I am not changing the title of the post....Fences and Phlox sounds much better than Fences and Dame's Rocket...don't you think.

Evening blog friends. As usual I'm running late again. 
Seems like the faster I go the behinder I get. 
I will try to visit and catch up with you all somewhat this weekend

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We seem to have an abundance of wild phlox in our area this year.  
They sure do make for pretty pictures. 








and a few closeups of these lovely wildflowers.









Wishing you all a wonderful Friday and a happy weekend.

So very pretty!
All are gorgeous shots but the first 4 look like lovely paintings and I love the close ups
Nice way to beautify a rather plain fence. Nature knows best.
Lovely pictures.

Hello Felicia, the wild phlox is beautiful. I see it everywhere too. Great shots. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

Felicia, I always thought that this was phlox, but recently learned it to be Hesperis mayronalis, dame's rocket. Phlox has 5 petals not 4. Beautiful shots!

sure is beautiful. thank you, felicia.

i like that fence and the phlox are gorgeous. also amazing to see that many in one place. i have never seen the purple. we had fields of them in Savannah when i was a child but they were red, white and not sure what other colors....

Your wild phlox is so pretty, bringing me a smile!
Happy Friday. Greeting from Japan.

Oh how pretty! Here in Oregon, our phlox grows in low little shrubs, and doesn't get tall like yours.
Bill said…
I dunno--- maybe the dame's rocket needs fencing. Heck I don't care what they're called. They are lovely. A most enjoyable post.

Wonderful picturers of these field flowers.
Great how you've photograph them so close.

Kind regards,
Marco

I would think I had died and gone to heaven if I had seen this on a road I was traveling. Enjoying it through your gorgeous photos will have to suffice so heaven will have to wait. I thought they were phlox too...we had them growing all along the road when we had our cabin in VA. Enjoy your weekend, my friend!

Whatever their correct name they certainly beautify that fence. I'm chasing my tail this week, too.

I love seeing what you see Felicia! Your photos are simply beautiful!
Have a fun weekend!

I think Fences and Phlox sounds better too Felicia. :) However, I've always called the Dames Rocket Phlox as well. It isn't in bloom here yet but is abundant down the road from us when it is blooming. Your photos are gorgeous! Enjoy the weekend.

The Phlox flowers are so pretty, sometimes while driving along the motorway here we see blooming wildflowers that have been planted earlier in the year, makes for some nice colour.
Karen Schurr said…
Such a lovely scene, LOVE it so much. As kids, we always referred to these as Bouncing Bettys. Never differentiated between 4 and 5 petals, though....just kids kicking around in nature back in Ohio's farmland.
Oh wow...the wild phlox is absolutely breathtaking!! Amazing photos :)

Hello, I saw you on my friend, Karen's blog, Beatrice Euphemie. You have the most wonderful pictures. I really like your posts because they are filled with simplicity and beauty, two things which I appreciate. These pink flowers are so pretty. Me and my daughters also love photography. We have a blog too, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow, and I would certainly come back and follow you as well. I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful photos, they truly are special.
