If all flowers wanted to be roses, nature would lose her springtime beauty, and the fields would no longer be decked out with little wildflowers.–Saint Therese of Lisieux
Their blue color captivated me. There they were, just growing alongside the road, begging me to stop and take a moment to enjoy their beauty. One of nature’s finest works, wildflowers are one of the first signs of spring.
I snapped this photo last year, on a toad trip through the mountains of Upstate New York. I don’t know what they are called; we do not have any flowers like this in North Carolina.
Speaking of spring, Simply Life Photographs is hosting a photo challenge called Flowers on Saturday. It is open for participants until Wednesday. Click on the button to view more photos of flowers or enter one of your own. But be forewarned, y’all: The photos will make you long for spring!
