These are just some of the photos I liked from this past week, some that I thought were beautiful and needed sharing.
These first few are of some wildflowers I found. The night we went to Mesa falls, we drove out into the back of beyond and the flowers were incredible. Sadly, it was getting late, plus it was raining, so the light was not very good.
I saw these Indian Paintbrush and told Al to stop, I had to take a picture. Never mind that it was raining and I was going to get wet. These were the only ones I saw, and the colors were like nothing I have ever seen in the Indian paintbrush world. I find these flowers in so many different areas, and climates, and they are all slightly different.
Of course I had to bring some home, and then I had to do a photo shoot of said flowers. I still can’t get over the colors. These are still alive on my kitchen counter, I wish they would live forever.
This is a big meadow of these yellow daisy type flowers.
And another meadow with a great assortment of flowers.
As I have said, we moved to a spot on the Snake river. It was pretty rainy, so we had to time our walks to beat the storms. The most beautiful part of being here, aside from the river out my back window, is the huge amount of wild roses. They are so thick here and they smell wonderful. Of course, I have some of those in the house too.
Our last evening here, the clouds were trying to lift, and the sun came out. Such beautiful contrasts on the river. The river is huge this year, more water than I have ever seen in it.
And there were lots of ravens, nothing wrong with that.
