What's the other wildflower sometimes with a black hat and green-striped jacket? ;) Wish I could have been with you. God's creation never ceases to be breathtaking.

Hi Deb! That other wildflower you were referring to is your Daddy!!

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos of these "wanderers from Eden" with us.
Tell us about your camera, please. Have you any special training: photo classes, art design, etc.
Love you!
Mary Ann

Hi Mary Ann,
I have a cheap little camera that fits perfectly in my dress pocket...nothing fancy. Like you, I enjoy taking pictures for fun...no training, although I need it badly enough.

The pictures really made my day. They are beautiful.

Love,
Carol

Oh, Vickie, we enjoyed the pictures so much; the wild flowers were just wonderful. Also had a good chuckle reading the little vignettes about your little student, Esli! How wonderful it is that you can get out and see all these wonderful places. Diana

Wow, I think heaven must be full of wildflowers!! Your pictures are so breathtaking! It must be so peaceful out in the middle of a wildflower field...

Hi Jessica, In one of those places we went to was a campground near by and we spent the night there among the Shootingstars that were growing all over the campground. It's so great to be out in nature...especially when it's as beautiful as this.

Wow -- the photos are beautiful! I was asking whether you took the pictures -- then, when I saw Jim in them, I realized that you must have been the photographer. They should be framed -- and sold (at fundraisers, etc., I bet you'd get good money).

Hope you'all are well.
Love, Jan

Eagle said...

Jan, I'd probably end up buying my own pictures!

Hey there! It was nice to see you all at the poppy fields. Nice flower shots. Can you e-mail me and remind me of your camera brand?? I'm interested in maybe getting one just like it to carry in my pocket. ;-)
