Little Purple Flowers


I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

Sunday Stills - Hands Challenge

Saturday my friend and I went out to Diamond Valley Lake in Hemet, CA to take pictures of the wildflowers.  She brought her grandson with her who is adorable and so patient while we took forever taking pictures of the flowers.  While he played with his action figures, I realized that I had an opportunity to meet the Sunday Stills challenge of HANDS!

Here are Dalin's hands

Descanso Gardens - In Bloom

Spent Saturday at Descanso Gardens photographing the beautiful blooms.  If you get a chance now is the time to see so much beauty.

This is one of my favorite shots of the day. The extreme contrast of the dark bark of the tree and the pure white of the blossom was awesome!

How long can such beauty last when it is just  barely hanging from a vine?
