Wild Flowers can be breathtaking.











Been away...haven't seen me in awhile...too much to do & never enough time! Had to share these pictures! Came over the top of a small hill last Monday, and hit the brakes at the sight of this sea of gold. For once, had my camera, so pulled off & started to carefully make my way through the edges of these amazing meadows. I don't know what kind of flowers the golden ones are, but the fields are intermingled with wild phlox in an amazing array of pinks & white with a little magenta thrown in for good measure. Ahh...Florida in the spring...still holds some surprises! Actually, these are not meadows, but a very small citrus grove with very wide spaces between the orange trees...have a great weekend! *elaine*

Thanks for visiting my blog, I moved back to Iowa just two years ago from Lake Placid and I miss my Florida very much, my Mother still lives there. I was also sitting in my basement with my dog last week after the tornado sirens went off, missing me by a mile, last year it devistated the town across the highway from me, very scarey weather.
Take care,
sharon

Those gorgeous yellow flowers appear to be coreopsis (tickseed). What a lovely display--can't beat nature for planting beautiful unexpected gardens, can you?
