Sunday Stills — Flowers & Plants; Lupine
For this week’s challenge over at Sunday Stills, Ed gave us yet another subject that I love — Flowers & Plants.
I have a favorite patch of Lupine that grows near by at our local lake. I found the patch last May and went to check and see if the flowers were blooming yet, especially with all the hot weather we’d been having the week before.
Fortunately for us here in Northern California, we’ve been getting some rain and it let up enough for me to take photos of my patch of lupine leaving beautiful little diamonds on their leaves.
Though my patch isn’t quite in full bloom yet, I plan to go back for more photos this coming week hopefully in the morning when the light starts to filter through the trees.
Taking my daughter with me to look at the pretty flowers is always fun as everything is so new in her eyes. Of course, like any little girl, she wants to pick them too…
It is a flower’s fate, to be grasped by a little girl’s hands.
Isn’t it interesting how we can get so bored with life and the things that are made by human hands but we never tire of seeing another sunset, sunrise, spring, or fall?
I really don’t believe that’s by chance.
Enjoy your Sunday!
