Photohunt: Fuzzy

PhotoHunters

Fuzzy flowers
Western anemone - Pulsatilla occidentalis

Happy New Years! I wish you a healthy and prosperous 2011.

This week's Photohunt theme is Fuzzy. I suspect that many of us have a fuzzy head today after drinking lots of fuzzy beverages last night. I could not resist a chance to highlight a few fuzzy flower pictures.

One of my favorite fuzzy flowers is the seed head of the Western anemone - Pulsatilla occidentalis. These seedheads dot the meadows of the Cascades in August. There are several funny names for the seed heads - "Mouse on a stick" is my favorite.

Here are a few other fuzzy flowers from the archives.

I love your fuzzy flowers and seeds. Great idea for the theme. Happy New Year!

I remember those white fuzzy cacti, ad we were so tempted to touch them and get stung.

You done a great job with fuzzies.

Beautiful photos! Great choices for the theme :)

These are beautiful flowers. The salvia and the cactus are very sharp images. Amazing how these flowers can grow in the desert.
