I love photographing flowers, so on my summer trip to Newfoundland I could often be found in a field with my camera, getting close to flowers, not to mention bees, ladybirds, and butterflies. We all get so caught up in the “big picture” in our busy lives, it’s good to remember the beauty of small things.
Fireweed was turning the fields mauve all along the coast.
And blue dotted the fields everywhere, in irises, harebells, vetch, and, of course, blueberries which were just ripening.
The heady scent of wild roses wafted over the August fields.
And white! Labrador Tea, daisy, yarrow, roses….
Everywhere, just everywhere, beautiful lupins coming into flower.
Sunny yellow flowers lit up the green fields and covered rocks with summer.
And every now and then, a touch of red.
Nature is generous. We should take some time to notice.
