Roadside Flowers

Do you ever notice the roadside flowers while driving down the highway? I always enjoy seeing flowers and these blue flowers in particular are my favorite. There is just something about them, soft and airy. I spotted them while we were in Illinois at a gas station.

These other flowers or weeds are interesting too.

Yes, Gwen. I always look at those roadside flowers. I also like to see how the median decoration changes from state to state. I always want to stop and take pictures, but I can never figure out how to do it without getting run over or getting a ticket. :-)

I love looking at them through the train window: poppies, little daisies and oleanders at the railway side, down in the ravine or up in the hills, but I don't dare walking close to them because I'm allergic to other weeds that live among these cuties.

Yes, I notice every little thing. I am a big nature lover and in spite of my near sightedness, I seem to see the smallest bugs when I'm out and about, which really makes me wonder about my eye sight ;-)

Aren't the roadside flowers the best! To me they look so beautiful, maybe because no one bothers them and they can grow to their hearts content. I just love seeing all the beautiful colors as I'm going down the road.

They are sooo beautiful to look at while driving! Looks like there are some queen annes lace in there, too.
