Fairfield’s Flowers

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”
  ~John Muir

Yesterday while waiting on my car to be serviced, I decided to take my camera and walk up Main Street in Fairfield, VA,  to look for interesting old homes to photograph. When I got to this house I was almost knocked over by the beauty of these flocks, and the gentleman mowing his lawn seemed tickled that I was taking pictures of the flowers.It was one of those special times when what I saw was so pretty I just had to take a picture of it. I added Kim Klassen’s “warm sun” texture. If you enlarge the picture, you will see all of the little goodies he has all over his yard.

  4. Because of you and your camera, that man's beautifully landscaped yard brought a moment of pleasure to many people who would not have otherwise seen it! Well done!

  5. Wow! What a colorful photo, Genie. I'm so glad you shared this with us. It's going to be awhile before my garden is even close to looking like this. :)
