Queen Ann's Lace

Oh my goodness guys! It was beautiful... The orange sun was setting behind the far away trees. Blue skies stretched for miles in every direction. Little birdies flew over head, singing their happy, bed time, tunes. Me on my bike, camera bag slung over my shoulder. Riding along soaking in the evening air. 

This time of the year is beautiful. Just beautiful. (Sometimes a little hot for this Oregon girl) but just gorgeous with blue skies and lots of excuses to eat Popsicles. One of the things I love about this time of the year is the flowers.

Went on a bike ride with my camera a few days ago right at sunset. There's a huge field like space near where i live and some of the bike trails go around it to create what we call "the long loop". This time of the year the field is just chocked full of Queen Ann's lace. Talk about beautiful! :) 

These photos really don't do it justice. It was that pretty.

Lady Bugs. There was tons of them. (Yup! I'm gonna have to be getting a macro lens sometime down the road.)

This stuff smelled like Mint but I've never seen look like this before. Must be some sort of weed. Anyone know what it is?

Hoping your having a beautiful summer.
