Floral Friday ~ While Walking










While out walking in our paddocks I came across this pretty patch of wild cosmos. I picked a small posy and then returned with the camera the next morning to photograph them. They bring a smile to my face every afternoon as we feed the cows, and although I wouldn't like the entire paddock to be filled with them (it would be pretty, I admit, but the cattle would be awfully thin...), I do enjoy having small patches of them here and there. There aren't as many here as when we first moved here a few years ago, and I hope they never completely disappear altogether.

I'm joining in once again with Trishie for Floral Friday. Care to play along too?


"Floral Friday is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along this month, simply add the link to while walking post below. To play along next time, please email Trishie for next month's theme."
