(Day 165) Beyond Solomon's glory

From all accounts it would appear that King Solomon from Biblical times was not only endowed with great wisdom, but also with riches, looks, and glory. He was the epitome of what most humans would aspire to. And yet, despite all his glory, we're told that the flowers of the field are clothed in more glory than King Solomon was. So I went out this evening to capture some of that. Here are some more wildflowers found on our land.

Amen to that.
Your photos have turned out really well here, Rick. The lighting is great. Was it sunset when you took them?

Rick said...

@J.J.S. - thanks Joel. Yes, I went for a walk later in the evening; in some places the sun was already behind the trees.

Beautiful flowers. You must have a lovely piece of property. How much land do you have to photograph!

Rick said...

@Barefoot from Heaven - LOL! yes, and I got my clean jeans dirty! Thanks Dag - glad you enjoyed them.

Rick said...

@Karen - thank you Karen; we're very blessed to have 77 acres - not very good farm land (I don't farm), lots of cedars and stones, but we love it; always wonderful things to photograph.

I love wildflowers...just the very thought of them (WILD) gives me chills.

Rick said...

@Marie - merci beaucoup Marie!

Rick said...

@Jeanne Klaver - I do too - I look forward to the new ones each month seems to bring - an almost endless variety.
