Beauty

As in many places in the world, beauty is appreciated in all it's forms and shapes. Growing roses is love the my mother in law has and she does them beautifully. They grow under and around an apple tree that produces a goodly amount of vegetation for continued soil growth. And she make sure the my children know to never step on the flowers and they listen, oh the power of the grandmother.

The fields were just beautiful and the day very cool and rainy.

Sunflowers in Samara

This photo and the one that follows were taken in a sunflower field near Samara Russia. The day was cool and partly sunny but the sunflowers were just stunning. This attempt was to add a painterly feel to the image.
