I know our comments get it wrong sometimes and go under a different piece of conversation. I do hope that Pixdaus will fix that problem up soon. Yes, I know how that goes too with typing the wrong word or letter. Very annoying when that happens...

What I meant by posting that photo of Achillea nobilis is that he knows what Achillea is, whether it be nobilis or millefolium, so why would he get his Achilleas mixed up with other flowers ? I would have to check if we had the nobilis variety here. I know we have millefolium variety though. Yes I saw how you number your photos. That is a very good idea. That would be great if Pixdaus introduced that into their new platform, (whenever that is).....

wakey, wakey, poppy! - "Easy to PICK the wrong..." - Funny how one sees the typos as soon as the 'send it' button is clicked. ;-)

Achillea nobilis is Noble Yarrow, Böhringer said Achillea millefolium, Common Yarrow. We don't have Noble Yarrow in Finland... I looked at Noble Yarrow pics, and especially the massed flower pics looked very much like the ones in this pic. So, the jury is still out... but I am 99% sure they are not millefolium. - Mix-ups happen. I don't know how other people file their pics, but I file them by the number and have corresponding Word lists of the pics with explanations. Easy to pic the wrong text or vice versa.

Many thanks for the link to Mr Böhringer’s page, Poppy. It seems that he at least knows what this Achillea looks like, as shown in this link. so I'm wondering why the mix up with the above photo then ? ...

I have been able to identify Yarrow since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. In flower identification, colour is sometimes the least important feature, at least for me. It’s only when other features between two flower species match, then colour comes into play. – I am certain the photographer knew his flowers, it’s just that he got his pics mixed up, that’s all. It can happen when you’ve hundreds, or thousands, of pictures... I very much like Böhringer’s photos, he seems like a real Nature Lover. And he looks so nice ;-) - see his photo at

Thankyou Poppy. I think you might be right about this flower being Cow Parsley. And because too Cow Parsley is white, just like the flower is in the photo, you could easily get the two flowers mixed up. Thankyou for bringing this to my attention, Poppy. I appreciate it very much.. :)

Lovely photo, Mary! I know the source said Achillea millefolium (Common Yarrow), which belongs to the Asteraceae family, but Friedrich must have got his photos mixed up, these are not Yarrow. The flowers do not match, and while Yarrow has just a single stem, I can see that many of these have branching stems. I am not saying that there could not be a Yarrow or two among these flowers, but the majority could be e.g. Cow Parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris) in the Apiaceae family. Hard to tell as the picture is not a close-up of the flowers. – I quite often find pics in Wikipedia with the wrong caption.

Sorry, this photo was posted before I could have time to put in the details of the photo. Achillea millefolium by friedrich Bohringer@ wikimedia.
