Jack’s Walk

Tuberous Vetchling

This beautiful flower is Tuberous Vetchling and I don’t see it very often. It’s mostly a meadow wildflower and the places Jack and I go are more wooded in nature. Today, though, as we were driving along I saw this bright shock of pink just on the edge of a field so we stopped to investigate. The plant is a cousin of Sweet Pea and the blooms are similar, but without the scent.

    The colour is so vivid! Oh, I love that. Beautiful shots all. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this around here. So pretty, and there’d be no way to miss that colour.

    Concurring with Caine on the colour. The flower looks a bit like a caricature of kissy lips.

    The pictures represent the beauty of the summer and the fly underlines the summeryness.

    Sad about the scent, they’re so similar to sweet pea! Gorgeous shots, all. Hello, Madam Diptera!
