Very pretty. I love fields of wildflowers.
So pale and dainty
I needed such a quiet parade today. Uplifting!
so why do you call them quaker ladies?? is that a different name for them?? never heard it before. lovely shot and poem tho! 🙂
I’m not sure why. Eliza knows them as “bluets”. Do you know a different name for them?
nope just bluets… it’s a cute name tho. 🙂
I usually see your consistently beautiful posts on my phone and don’t have the means to comment – but want to take this occasion when I’m on a computer to say how much my days are enhanced by your photos and words. Thank you for your positive contribution to my days.
Thank you so very much!!
Beautiful flowers on another spring day.
