Friday Finds – unexpected gifts

I walk down along the river with my honey alot and every time I search for new things to photograph.  One can only take so many pictures of river shots and water, canyon walls and empty trails.  So I search out the birds and the butterflys and anything else that catches my eye or moves in that case.

I was looking for butterflys dancing around, but this year seems to be void of them. I catch a far off glimpse of a yellow swallowtail (at least I think thats what it is) ,  but nothing close enough to get good shots of.  I was headed back to the car, kinda lollygaging and I was running my hand over the tops  of this clover field I was walking along.   Deep purple, almost black clover, spring bright, pretty purple clover and soft, sweet, pale white clover that the butterflys go crazy for. I was so enjoying the sweet smell in the air and feeling the tops of the flowers brushing my hand… I realized that this was my unexpected gift.  I turned back to shoot not knowing if I could capture the essence of a whole patch of clover or not, but I enjoyed it so that I  just had to try.

    We don’t have such colorful clover, but we do have the lovely, sweet-smelling – and sweet tasting! – white clover. It’s all a summertime gift – thanks for sharing yours!

    Nancy Jean,
    It does make sense and I’ll give that a try. I love everything Kim does. I really want to do more texturing and she is such an awesome teacher. Thank you for coming over and letting me know about the button.

    Wow Linda,
    no purple clover down there in Texas? Well I guess your amazing and stunning blue bonnets make up for that. Wanna trade? Just kidding. I am loving white this year too. I have some white and purple cosmos (I always forget how much I love them until I grow them again) anyway, the white ones are just mesmerizing me and next year I’m going to do a big bucket of just the white ones. And maybe I’ll add some white clover to the mix too. Thank you for your visits, I do love them.

    Thanks for that Carmel,
    New Mexico is stunning in the colors that can happen here. It must be the enchanting light.
