The long, cold, dark days between January 15th, when the Plaza lights go dark, and spring can be really depressing here Somewhere-in-the-Middle-of-the-US. Everything seems so barren and grey. As I shot these dead, dried-up wildflowers along Lake Lenexa, I dreamed of just a few months from now when spring arrives and I have beautifully colored flowers to shoot from March through October.
In the meantime, if you don’t already follow fellow photoblogger Carol Welsh over at Flowers, Trees & Other Gifts of Nature, check out her site. The beautiful flower shots year-round bring a little sunshine into my days, especially in the dead of winter.
What about you? Are you a fan of winter, or do you have another favorite season? Do you have a favorite shot below?
Dried Up Flower Photo #1. These look like they used to be some sort of daisy.
Dried Up Flower Photo #2. This looks a bit like the remains of a purple thistle.
Dried Up Flower Photo #3. The extreme close-up of this flower makes it look as big as a sunflower from behind, but I think it’s actually another purple thistle.
