Wildflowers in the Country

Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair... ~Susan Polis Shutz

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Afternoon on a Hill"

Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you. ~Edward Payson Rod

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers. ~Basho

"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair." - Kahlil Gibran

All these things were seen on Saturday afternoon, as Bonnie and I traveled a back road just beyond Woodland, Delaware.   We got out of the car and played for a while.

You just blow me away when I visit your blog. Love the vivid blue flowers against fields of green and the close ups of the lady bugs, priceless and the old barn and the....love them all, so glad you and Bonnie got out to play on your road trip!

Sounds sublime! Frances, I know I say this a thousand times, but I want to hang out with you!! The places you go and the wonderful experiences you share. So glad I get to read about it and witness all the glory through your lens. :)

Happy to hear you had such a lovely time. I love little spontaneous moments where life just happens. *sigh* Thanks for all the bliss!
