i've come to realize that wildflowers are much more transient than i really ever realized. nature's canvas changes constantly. with that thought in mind, i decided it would be neat to document one of my favorite wildflower haunts on a monthly or more probably bi-monthly basis.
i've chosen the ridge at my high school for this documentation because it is a unique natural environment and close by with easy access.
i went for the first time this year on the vernal equinox. that seemed appropriate. i wasn't finding much of interest, but i persevered as i just knew there was something there somewhere.
and finally, i found it.
isn't this like a sweet little fairy world?
it's scenes like these that give me little glimpses back to my own childhood.
and i wonder if these little succulents would grow in captivity. or are they just meant to be seasonal? hmmm . . . hopefully, i'll figure this out through the course of the spring/summer, right?
and then as i was snapping a few more photos as the sun was setting . . .
i had an idea for another little photo shoot, this time involving my son. :)
