Wildflower Week - Checkerblooms

This seems to be a great year for "Checkerblooms". There are so many more than usual and they seem much taller than usual. I love these flowers! They're one of my favorites. I'm not sure how they got their name. I just think of them as really pretty pink flowers. There are so many things I love about this flower...the color, shape, the adorable twisted buds (click on the pictures to get a closer/larger view), the light centers, the delicate veins, and that there are a lot of flowers on each stem...

...Simply, beautiful!

Check back tomorrow for more wildflowers.
