Buttercup and Wild Geranium
I went for a walk Tuesday morning, minus my camera, and noticed so many pretty wildflowers blooming along the road, in the ditch and in the fields. After I got home I got my camera and went for another short walk to take photos. I intended to post this on Tuesday but was having blogger issues and couldn't load photos. I tried again today and all was well. :-)
Buttercups and Forget-me-nots.

On Monday evening we drove by this pastoral scene with the cows in a full field of buttercups as the sun was lowering in the sky so, I thought I'd walk up and get a photo. As I got closer I heard a tractor and as I passed the trees I saw the farmer was cutting the field! I was quite disappointed not to get a photo of the full field of buttercups and cows but this one will do too.

Wild Geranium ? Do my flower friends know what this is for sure? I checked on Google and found similar images but not this exact one. Whatever it is it's such a pretty blue. Barbara Lillian, a blogger from France, correctly identified this as Meadow Cranesbill. Mystery is solved. :)
The Lupins are still blooming but some are also going to seed.
We're supposed to have sunshine through Sunday except for the chance of a shower this afternoon. It's still not very hot here as temperatures are in the low 20's and I prefer the mid-20's of course. Hopefully it will be warming up more soon. In the meantime I'm grateful for the sunny days even if it feels a bit like early fall. Haha!
We have a busy weekend coming up with a contemporary worship concert at Snider Mountain Ranch near Sussex where Paul Coleman, The City Harmonic, Chelsey Amber, The Broadcast Music, and The LaPointes will be performing. On Sunday we have our Summer Music Night at our church featuring the choir and guests. I'm looking forward to both events!
I hope you enjoy the first weekend of summer! Next week is Canada Day on July 1 and Independence Day in the US on July 4. I think we'll all be doing a little celebrating!
Have a great day!
