Here is another beautiful little wildflower that grows in abundance here in the Madison Indiana area. Right now this great flower is growing in large clusters along the wooded hillsides and ravines in the eastern part of our county.

They have a very small bloom on them but the color of that bloom and the vast number of them make for a dazzling display for you to enjoy.

Right now a ride thru the eastern side of the county is actually a great time to see all the wonderful wildflowers that are right now blooming in full glory.

Hope you enjoy the image and thanks for taking a look !!

Beauty in Everything…Even a Ditch

I think that is an old saying of some kind and in reality it definitely rings true, if you just get out and take a look at the world beneath your feet !!

The other day I was out driving to meet with a friend and happened to come across an old ditch along a back road in Jefferson County Indiana, just out side of Madison, driving along I noticed a long stretch of the ditch had been mowed around. Figuring the county did not want their mowers bogged down in the moister laden mess, they just mowed around it and left a long swath of growth.

With our lives been so complicated and busy most travelers would drive right past this not noticing the beauty that is intertwined in the ditch, as well I might have done the same but the more I live my life with a camera sometimes just little colors or shapes seem to stand out and catch my eye.

Thankfully on this day my camera pack and tripod were in the back and I was ready to capture some the beauty of this wonderful little flower garden that escaped the mowers blade. I counted at least seven different wildflowers along that stretch trying to capture the beauty of these little gems as I crawled along the side of the road.  I am sure I was getting quite a few strange looks from the folks who traveled that road daily, but when shooting I usually don’t notice what is happening with the onlookers who pass by.

Well here they are, five samples of the beauty that sometimes gets lost in our fast paced and hectic lives, hopefully we can take the time just to slow down and take a little closer look at the beautiful things that we miss.  Hope you enjoy the pics and thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!
