How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold?
Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root,
and in that freedom bold.

~ William Wordsworth

More Summer Wildflowers

For me, summer and wildflowers are synonymous. And one of my favourite things to do is go out for a day to enjoy the wildflower meadows in the foothills and mountains of Kananaskis Country in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. For me, it’s pure bliss.

  2. Hello Jeannie,
    I was so happy to see more wildflower photos from you. It really must feel like a taste of heaven, to walk in nature :)) As always, your photos are stunning. I also can’t believe it will be September soon…but, autumn is also a lovely season ;) Hope you and your partner are enjoying the weekend!

    • Thank you so much, Takami. It truly is balm for my soul to walk in nature. I appreciate autumn as much as I do summer–I love the way each season has its own mood and beauty. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :))

  3. Talking about pure Bliss, Jeannie… It is pure bliss for us when you share your most superb photographs! I hope on some of the photos you give us amateurs some idea of how you photographed and edited them! Beautiful captures… :-)
