Lavender Fields

Sometimes when you are driving to a destination, you see something quite unexpected.

 

On our drive to Rainbow Springs, we looked out our windows and saw fields covered in lavender.

 

It is a wildflower and I have no idea what it is.

 

But it was breathtaking! 


Wildflowers are planted all along the highways here, so I'm sure I'll roll the window down again soon for flower photos...oh I mean Good Fences. 


I'm joining Tex for the



 

Are there wildflowers blooming where you live this week?

*Happy St. Patrick's Day*

It is an amazing sight to see rows & rows of flowers! I'm sure the smell would be lovely also!
Enjoy your day!

That would be such a pretty sight Diane. It is snowing here today so, No, there are no wildflowers blooming at all! :) You'll be among the first to know when they do though but it will be a few weeks yet. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you. Enjoy! Hugs, Pam

I love wildflowers. My front yard is covered with a tiny purple flower. So pretty but I don't know what it is. Enjoy this lovely day.

Such a pretty shade of lavendar. - Reminded me once of being on a trip with my mom where we both saw this field of purple flowers but didn't want to say anything to the other one because we didn't want them to think we were seeing things. On the way back we both managed to actually say we'd seen the purple fields. - Oh yes, you did have fences here as well. They were nice but not as pretty as your lovely flowers.

Diane said...

Happy St. Pat's Day to you too! Lovely flowers. Really like the fence shot.

We're at the lake and the dogwoods are in bloom as well as the daffodils. Enjoy your weekend. xo

Beautiful beautiful photos - and can almost smell them. One thing you would enjoy here is the number of lavender farms - there are many many of them - here and on the islands - and lots of festivals. We've driven by some of the farms on sunny, warm days and the fragrance is amazing. Have a great end to your week dear friend. I might even surprise you and see you on Wednesday(oops - there goes the surprise).

ann said...

It would be interesting to know what the flowers are. Are the Texas blue bells in bloom yet? I've always wanted to see a field of Texas blue bells.

Montanagirl said...

Lovely photos, my friend! I was only 19 degrees again this morning. No flowers for us yet.

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

There are so many lavender flowers, it looks so beautiful!

Gina said...

Diane, it looks like a lovely carpet! Wouldn't it be wonderful to stop and have a picnic there? Thank you for sharing with us.

Art and Sand said...

Yes, lots of wildflowers here.

We have some type of yellow daisy growing profusely on many of the beaches. The lupine should be opening soon near the state beach and pink rock roses are abundant. Of course, my rock roses aren't blooming at all!

Beautiful -- I love wildflowers and it is so cool that you found fields full of them in your special color!! Had your kids visited you in Florida before? They must have been so impressed with all they saw.
