Sunday Stills Wildflowers

I had to pull off the side of the road for these beauties below....and while people honked horns, I enjoyed finding different stages of bloom for my chosen subject~




Queen Anne's Lace is my favorite Wildflower...can you tell?!!

Of course, I had to have the token Columbine ..it was looking very pretty by the log that I use to get back on my mare to ride, after closing the gate.


Ed has given us such fun challenges! Please do visit his SUNDAY STILLS web page, for More views of Wildflowers!
