A drive into the countryside is usually relaxing and most often I come back with numerous new photos. Most of the following pictures were taken outside of town, except for the last one. I will explain later
I have a few favourite spots to go to, for two reasons, they have good views and I can be off the road. This is one of those.It is a simple scene, but I think it is pretty.
The yellow flowers up front are called Tansy and here is a close-up view.
Driving down a country road,I saw this spent thistle.I know the flower is gone, but there is still beauty.
As I look at this, I think of people, myself included, as we get older.The flower of your may be gone, but there can still be beauty.
Here is another flower, mostly done.Those purple spikes around the flowerhead, are what got my attention.
This flower was a freebie.By this I mean, that I did not plant it.It grew up from a seed that a bird likely dropped into the flower pot.The flower head was not very large, maybe 6-8 inches in diameter, but it intrigued me,.
Something To Think About:
Let us take a lesson from the flowers.Age doesn't matter, nor does our status in life.We can be beautiful at any age. And like that sunflower, let's bloom where we are planted.
