Mountain Wildflowers

Along side a forest service road is where these little beauties live. Awfully pretty flowers for being "just wild flowers".

i find wild flowers the most beautiful.
no one looks after then and yet they grows into a thing of beauty...

I love the way you have the one flower in sharp focus, and another couple blurred in the background, showing how the various blossoms relate to one another!

I like the combination of the lavender and yellow colors. Such a pretty shot, too.

I often think that wildflowers are more beautiful than what we plant. They just grow to such a natural beauty in their surroundings. Very pretty photo!!

And an awfully pretty photograph! Wildflowers are the most pretty of all. We have extensive wildflowers in Western Australia and people flock from all over the country to visit them in their prime in our Spring.
