Not long ago, I walked through the forest part of my park, reveling in the signs of the long-anticipated spring.  Immediately upon entering, there were wild flowers carpeting the forest floor, each more breath-taking than than the one before. Their beauty brought a grin, not just a smile but a full-fledged grin, to my face that stayed with me, sometimes morphing into actual noises of joy. It was a glorious morning of nature at her best.

    Beautiful! I don’t know those flowers, we don’t have them…

  2. Hammad Rais says:

    Rare beauty these wild flowers are!

    • They aren’t in bloom for long, but while they are, they’re so beautiful, Hammad, and there are so many of them (and other kinds as well) during that time.


  3. Best type of carpeting ever. 🙂

  8. Stunning image Janet. I can imagine how you would feel upon coming across this wonder.

  9. Angeline M says:

    I love the flowers with the interspersed dried leaves, and then the trees as a backdrop. Lovely scene and photograph.

  10. It’s just incredible to find this luscious blanket of flowers out in the wild! Such a scene really puts the carefully curated patches in front lawns and on the sidewalks out here to shame.

  11. pattisj says:

    That does look lovely, Janet.

  12. Looks like you got right down with the flowers. Wonderful way to welcome spring. 🙂

    These are so gorgeous! They’re some kind of trout lily.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
