Spring Has Sprung

I've been a photograph-snapping fool these days, because I am crazy about wild flowers.  I am probably just crazy, but that's another blog post.  In the meantime, enjoy!

Whenever I see a red poppy, I automatically think of The Wicked Witch of the West, with her mortar and pestle, casting a spell to ensnare Dorothy.   Is that weird?  It sure is!

This was in a random cow pasture, and I had to stand in waist high grass and hold the camera over the fence to snap this photo. This pink poppy had a cross in the center of it, after all that.  Cool surprise!

I am not sure what these are.  Part of me wants to say 'daisy', but then there might be some sort of fancypants scientific description, such as 'Fortenberry-SmytheYellow'.   You never know with flowers.

This was one of the writing prompts from Mamakat's Writers Workshop.  Check her out if you get a chance!


  1. Lovely flowers! I have purple Japanese irises springing up in my yard that weren't there last year. They're most welcome to stay, though. :)

  2. LOVE the poppies. They are so hard to find here, something about kids getting stoned off the seeds.

    Damn teenagers ruin everything.


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
