Wild Purple Daisy ~

Purple Flower

~ Took a hike down the gravel forest road ~ First found the beautiful felled walking stick just waiting for me on the ground ~ Turned out to be a great prop to hold the wild growing purple daisy still for the shot ~ Having a marvelous time dancing in the wind ~

Trees ~

Poston Park

~ Joyce Kilmer wrote a poem entitled Trees ~ Although these trees are not very majestic nor what I truly believe Kilmer meant when the poem was written in 1913 they are trees none the less ~ I do like the reflective quality of the shot ~ For a real look at the trees Kilmer was referring to in the poem one would need to visit the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Robbinsville, NC ~
