Flower Friday - Mountain Meadows

Our recent camping trip had a fantastic combination of lakes and wildflowers (and Shyla says that the scents were wonderful too!).

Some of the lakes even had flowers growing on the water! That was a treat to see.

 Shyla and I did a fun combination of swimming in lakes and playing in wildflowers.

The combination of rich red Indian Paintbrush and Purple Lupines captured my attention.

This combination looked like an Independence Day display!

I tried and tried to get aerial footage the meadows bursting with wildflowers. It took some practice but I eventually captured some video that I liked enough to share. I hope that you enjoy it!

  9. Shyla my friend...OMCs when we saw your sniffin' photo both of us turned our heads up to see if we could capture a whiff....darling photo.

    The video (how did you do that) took our breath away. WOW....it is the true meaning of the word Awesome, which is used incorrectly in today's world.

    1. Yes, I used a drone camera! I tend to think of a drone as simply a "flying camera".

  13. Superb drone video, and I see a lot of very dry soil in so many places, and one tall spire in the group of trees? A bare trunk, or aerial? Colours together, a wonderful combination for a quilt.

  18. Lilypad flowers are always pretty on a lake, but they do kind of make a mess if you are trying to use a boat. Pretty flowers.
