Wildflowers

Where you'd least expect them,

.

"Look and you will find it. What is unsought will go undetected."


~ Sophocles


 "The Earth Laughs in Flowers."
-  Ralph Waldo Emerson


 "Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into."   
-  Henry Ward Beecher


"If seeds in the black earth can turn into such beautiful roses, what might not the heart of man become in its long journey toward the stars?"  
-  G.K. Chesterton 


These wildflowers we found a couple weeks ago, some almost hidden, nestled in the sage of the high desert -- others (mostly the purples) growing bold and brazen and thick on the roadsides of the higher mountain passes.
