Today's Flowers: Drive by flower shooting
Last Sunday I managed to get a fair amount of wildflower shots on the road since I wasn't driving.
I wish the lighting had been better because it was hard to work around the reflections through the windows to get decent shots.
At some places the wildflowers formed carpets on the side of the road.
As we got closer to the mountains the flowers were becoming more sparse but the trees were more colorful.
In central NC where I live we haven't had a hard freeze yet. Blowing Rock where we were heading had already had its first unusually early light snow the weekend before we went there.
It was spring like weather when we were in Blowing Rock but it was obvious they'd had some prior cold weather and I had already read about it when I looked in advance for the forecast before our trip.
Some fall flowers around town and in the woods had survived the frost and snow but were much less abundant than on the way there.
The burning bush and fall trees provided plenty of colors and I think of them as Autumn flowers.
