  1. Great lighting, Looks like slightly diminished sunlight, with dark clouds in the distance.

    • Thank you, MV…it was actually full sunlight…but I added a little bit of shadow-effect with Picasa…seems to have turned-out okay.

  4. I love the way you did the captions, one after each image. Very nice. And of course, it’s good to see flowers…this one I think I remember. It’s pretty common, right? Thank you for this post!

    • It is rather common, Lynn…out in the desert and along the highways…ubiquitous might be a good work for it. πŸ™‚

      You’re welcome, friend….

  5. So much to discover in these pictures! I fell in love with this detail in particular (4th photo from above): the bud that is partly in the shadow of a blooming flower, but peeking up enough to get some sunlight too. (Is that us, humanity, biding our time to rise from this crisis and to florish again, hopefully in better ways?)

    • Yes…hopefully in better ways…and thank you. πŸ™‚

    It is very cold and grey here (again) and just seeing these sunshiney lovelies helps . . . thank you.
