perennial flax, Linum perenne

Sharp focus isn't everything. The soft focus you see here can create a different feeling. Perennial flax are delicate little flowers on long stems that bend to the wind at the least excuse. To me, they are ephemeral beauties that are hard to get a good focus on in life. The soft focus is an attempt to capture that impression. The 2/3 inch flowers occur in fields in IA, IL, KS, ME, MI, MT, NE, NY, OH, OR, PA, VA, WI, WV, ON, and in their native Europe. Lenawee Co MI, 5/15/10.
