Cee’s Len’s-Artists Photo Challenge this week features single flowers. I realized I’m spoiled for choice, but that’s not a bad problem to have.

My first photo, an iris, was taken with an iPhone and has been one of my most popular photos. Of course, the light is what makes it and I never again could get that same light. Then the older man who grew these beauties on his tree lawn died and the family dug them up.

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the mind.”

Now that we live in the desert, I think it only fitting that I should include a shot of a cactus flower. Although you might not think it, the cacti have some of the most beautiful blooms you’ll ever see. Just be careful when getting a closeup!

“I will be the gladdest thing under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.”

Happy Easter!

I’ve been blessed to be able to do a lot of traveling this year, overseas as well as in the US.  This weekend, I’m in Shenandoah, Iowa, visiting our older daughter.  This morning I had a lovely (but chilly & windy) walk on the Wabash Trace, post material for tomorrow.  But today is time for WordPress’s photo challenge.  Last week I was very late (travels again), which means not as many views.  But that’s OK.  This week’s theme is “Minimalist.”  I’ll work hard at getting to as many of your photos as I can.  It’s always great to see what you’ve come up with and to learn for other photographers.
