Where the wild flowers grow

Wild flowers grow everywhere, and what a beautiful view when they bloom along the highways and in the wild. One of the things I enjoy most is to grab my camera and just shoot many pictures at once, and then be amazed with results later on my computer. And now... they remind me of one simple thing, that is to look around and consider all our blessings and give thanks with a grateful heart to the Holy One... and all the Lord has done for us.

"And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you." Matthew 6:30

Cris, I totally agree with you. There is no big proof that God exists looking at the beautiful nature, the flowers, the little wild animals which borns in the Spring. Everything the Lord gives to us.We must take care of our wonderful world!

All we have to do is open our eyes and appreciate the little things. There are some glorious sights out there.

there's nothing prettier than the sight of wild flowers swaying with gay abandon.....and u have captured them so beautifully....i agree with you..that's how i go about my clicking too.... instead of doing it in a well-studied methodical manner.

So beautiful, Cris. I love the yellow cosmos (I think that's what it is).

Connie Peterson said...

Lovely flowers. I, too, like to just grab and click - you never know what you will discover later on.

One question - how do you put the countrypatch thingie on your pictures?

Blessings

I love all three of these photos...for some reason, that last one really is just beautiful to me, even though it's just a simple seed dandelion...a great reminder of such beauty all around that we take for granted sometimes...

Thank you so much for your comments. Yes, I think the yellow one is yellow cosmos.
