Today's Flowers





Just down the road from me is this field of yellow. Just a few months ago cattle were grazing in this field. Since taking the photos I noticed this week it is being mowed down. It was certainly beautiful for a little while.

And you did't throw your self down and roll in them? I sure would have been tempted. Like rubbing sushine all over you, without danger of uv rays. :)

That is what I call a "field of dreams"! Absolutely beautiful!

I agree with Dot, it is a field of dreams! It looks so cheerful, it's a shame they mowed the field. Beautiful captures!

Great series of shots. I felt like I was walking up to them until I got close. Too bad they were mowed down. :-(

Reader Wil said...

Fortunately you took photos of this field before it was mowed down.

Excellent set of pictures leading up to a beautiful flower.

I just bet that was so beautiful to see.

Sorry I have not been here much. Work is so busy. I have not gotten a post of my own up in a week or shot any pictures. Hopefully things will ease up. Your pictures are continuing to be great. Hope you're doing well. :)

Raven said...

Wow! What's more beautiful that a whole field of flowers! These are beautiful. Enjoyed your post down below too. Isn't autumn just moving too fast this year? My trees started turning in mid August and the past few days have seen dramatic changes in all the trees.

Fabulous. What a great field of sunshine! Thanks for your visit Carletta. I'm behind this week working my way to Tuesday :0)

Carver said...

That's a beautiful field of flowers. It looks like my coriopsis which self seeds and almost becomes a field although it's pretty droopy by the end of summer. I love the shots you got.
