One day in early June I was finishing a morning run in my neighborhood when a patch of lovely flowers caught my attention. Growing wild in a roadside ditch, I was instantly captivated by their unique range of blue-violet hues.
Of course I had to return with my camera.
Being terrible at plant identification, I had no idea what these flowers were (probably weeds). But I loved the colors, and knew these blooms would make wonderful images.
Most of the time I'm traveling long distances, hiking up mountains, or tromping through forests to find and photograph the wonders of nature.....and here these insanely gorgeous wildflowers were growing a mere four blocks from home.
Moral of the story - don't forget about the beauty in your own backyard.
