I've never had blueberry bushes before, so I've never been able to see the beauty that precedes the delicious fruit. I have loved watching the blueberry blossoms turn into fruit...they are so beautiful and dainty.

Macro May

I take daily walks around my yard/garden to see what is happening, and the other day I had my camera and macro lens with me. It's so fun to get a close up look at the tiniest details of flowers.

Mother's Day

These are the two who call me mom....I get to spend every day with them, and it's an absolute JOY.

I played the "Mother's Day card" and requested photos of the three of us. My husband was the photographer and his method is to be done as quickly as possible. He doesn't bother centering the subject or making sure the lighting is good. He doesn't even wait until we are ready.  He just snaps a few photos and then calls it good!

More Wildflowers

We've had gorgeous weather here this past week and the wildflowers are loving it! I mentioned in my last post that my daughters and I stumbled upon the most gorgeous display of wildflowers after visiting a local museum. We walked the trail a little bit that day, but I made plans to return the next day with more time to hike and explore.

As we hiked the trails I kept thinking..."this can't get anymore beautiful". But then the path would turn and it would get more beautiful. The photos don't do it justice. It was amazing.

Here are some of the wildflowers we saw...



Desert Parsley

Common Fiddleneck

Wildflower season here is brief and I'm so glad I've taken two different opportunities to get out and enjoy them this past week. 

My first excursion was a solo one and took me to Rowena Crest...where the road curves like crazy and where the wind blows like crazy!

The second outing was with my girls. We visited a museum and then sort of stumbled upon this state park that was full of wildflowers.
