Find a Flower

Hello and welcome to Easy Wildflowers.

This site is undergoing some major changes today.

I apologise if you are following, there will be lots of posts popping up in your reader. This is because I had started this site using pages rather than posts and now I have decided that is a bad idea so I am converting all of the pages to posts.

The links will be all over the place for a while.

I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

  1. You have done exactly what I have been thinking of doing for a couple of years, Colin. I have a vast photo library of flowers and birds (98 birds i counted recently) and would love to put them up in some sort of library to share, but as yet, haven’t quite worked out the best way to do it.

    Any advice? I’ve got to make a start somewhere or else I will never get it done.


    1. Thanks Vicki 🙂 You should do your birds that is something that I would really enjoy. As to advice, that’s difficult as I am still trying to figure out the best way to present my flowers. As I have used colour as the first step, you could use family but that is not instinctively easy. Many people who don’t know a lot about birds might not be able to tell a finch from a tit for instance. You might use location, like “Town and Garden Birds,””Woodland Birds, “Shoreline Birds.” Once I have got Easy Wildflowers populated my next project might be to create Galleries to group my pictures together and make them easier to find. My idea for that is just to use a lot of free blogs, having a different blog for mammal photos and another one for fungi etc. Just to take advantage of the free storage allowance (I don’t want to pay for a lot of blogs) I could link them all from one central page. Something else that I would like to do is create a blog for children with games to play and entertain them. That one is a bit tricky, I am still working on ideas. Good luck with your Australian birds 🙂

  2. Thanks Colin.

    I’ll do some more thinking….. (I think – LOL).

    It’s not easy to separate subjects (e.g. birds, flowers, animals etc) and decide the best way to share. The hardest part is choosing the best bird image (of each species). Most are local and some I’ve seen only once and got a mediocre photo from a distance, hoping against all odds I’d see them again and get a better photo. Others are from the Great Aviary (open range sort of) at Melbourne Zoo and although not in the wild, are still interesting to see in their ‘wild’ looking habitat. Some are still on my old Windows back-up drive and not able to be edited into something better on my Mac Pro. And so on.
    But the biggest decision is which image to share (and write a brief description about for those interested).

    I have to admit hardly any are anywhere near as sharply focused as your own images, but then it’s not about comparisons is it – it’s about sharing your photography and love of nature.

    Unfortunately I’m not experienced in personalising WordPress templates and my blogging sites either, but since I paid for the 2 current ones, I feel I ought to stay with them (rather than searching for better ones for showcasing groups and sub-groups of images.

    Pity you don’t live ‘around the corner’ – I’d be landing on your doorstep, computer in hand, asking for help. I’m more of an artist (than a computer expert) and I tire too easily these days.


  3. In your woods photo (top) those look like phlox to me, or what my mother would call, ‘Sweet William’. I’m clueless as to the Latin description. At any rate, I loved going for a walk in the spring woods and plucking a huge, fragrant bouquet for my mother.
