Kaleidoscope of Color...

I know I've mentioned this before. Being that this is Texas State Flower, and is now in full bloom in different areas of the Lonestar country. When I have a chance to pull off the road and get out to get photos of them, I always like to take a different-view perspective of the blossom. From the very top, looking down. It's like a kaleidoscope of color, and each blossom is different. As if you're twisting the kaleidoscope beads to get different shapes!!!  Truly, a never-ending array of shapes.

See?



This is Bud's Birthday today.

  6. I always look forward to Bluebonnet posts, and you have totally outdone yourself today. I have NEVER been able to see the tops of them, and have actually wondered what the tops look like!! Your kaleidoccope comparison is so perfect!!! These are wonderous shots. Seeing one of God's miracles that I have never seen before has made my day!

  25. Hoping with CheerfulMonk that Bud had a happy birthday. Love the way you photographed the Bluebonnets. I so would love to see them in real life.

    Re the trillium on my blog, no, it does not start out white. There is white trillium and there is this...some call it toadshade but it is trillium.
