Each of my little girls are rather wildflowers themselves, I think. Beautiful, spirited, resilient, luminous. Uninhibited! I wish I knew what these tiny pink blossoms were. Hopefully someone will read my blog that knows.
These were taken in an abandoned lot near some million-dollar homes here in South Charlotte. Keith and I pass by there frequently, and there are two chimneys on the property that are still standing from where I think a house burned down. We originally went there to shoot near the chimneys, but I was delighted to find these flowers right near where I parked my car. When we headed further into the lot, I was disappointed to find that the chimney area wasn’t nearly as lovely as it looked from the road, and it was overrun with poison ivy. Since I get poison ivy from just thinking of the words “poison ivy”…we stayed away. I hope we weren’t trespassing! I didn’t see any signs posted, but you never know.
These photos are my favorite photos of Miss O to date. The colors are just so rich; they evoke every emotion related to late summer that I can think of. Enjoy them. I do.
