Wildflowers

"In such a beautiful wilderness of wildflowers, we are amused with the very variety and novelty of the scene so much that we in our pleasure lose all sense of weariness or fatigue in the length of our wanderings and get to the end before we are aware of our journey."
--John Clare

We went for a walk last night. A wonderful, beautiful evening walk. The sun was setting, the breeze was blowing - and we were surrounded by beauty all around! Here's some images from of our adventure:









































Hoping your day is filled with beauty, too!

Things I am thankful for today:

1. Morning - a new start.

3. Productive day in the office.

Where were you walking? Were all of those wild or were some in some landscaping? Love the last pic!!!

These were all the wildflowers in our nature area, in our neighborhood! And there's a bunch of pictures I took that were too blurry to post - the wind was blowing, and as soon as I was interested in a flower Bailey was right in the mix too... Kind of hard to get good pics with the dog jumping at the flower and at the camera! I've never seen so many kinds of flowers on our path - they must finally be getting established! So cool.

Yeah! you got it! I've been out of the blogging loop this week, so I'm just seeing this now.

Your photos are beautiful! I can't believe those are all in your nature area. Fantastic! And congrats on the sewing machine. Hope you have so much fun with it! Saw you in a pic on Carol's site. Are you taking her quilt class? It should be so much fun! :)
