Things that Go BLOOM! II


The columbines are out and about! Found these yesterday off the trail - only 4 of 'em. Pretty photogenic flowers though, I'm a fan! Today's Flower, Mellow Yellow,
Oh and hey! some little forget me nots, because they begged for a photo also. Blue Monday, Ruby Tuesday

Wonderful job with the columbines.

Ours are starting to go by. It is a good thing I shot one last week because this week we have 20mph winds. There will be no shooting wildflowers today!

Your spurs look a little shorter than ours.

Carver said...

These are fantastic shots of the columbine. So vibrant.

Thanks for you comment on mine and I have to admit that the only problem with realizing I have roses I planted 20 years ago is that it reminds me that I'm not still 20. Mostly kidding since my daughter is 25 and I'm actually happy to be 53 but it's still weird to think that I've been in the same house for 26 years. Especially since Bill and I thought it would be our starter house. I guess it's about time I finish it, ha.

Next to those columbines, those forget me nots probably felt they had to beg ... I love the complexity of the one and the awesome simplicity of the other. Of course, the eye of the photographer caught it all! Thanks! Jenn
