PAINTER’S BRUSH – FRIDAY’S PHLOG FOR AUGUST 29TH, 2014

painters flower

I took this picture during our camping trip this summer.  I’m not a flower expert but if I see something that appeals to me I focus and shoot.  However, after showing my pics to a friend who grew up in the area we were visiting, she informed me that this flower was used by the First Nations People to make red paint.   Suddenly the flower looks so much more interesting!
