May: Wild Flowers

I do love a carpet of wild flowers in a landscape, so was very pleased to see Jude has Wild Flowers as her theme this month.

I’m off to Italy for today’s images. First up, a couple of images taken on a very grey day some years ago on the Piano Grande in Umbria:

And finally, Selinunte on Sicily. We were just a tad early to see the wild flowers in earnest, but I did just find a few:

  1. Very nice, Sue. That’s a lovely part of the world, and I have never been there.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Beautiful flowers and landscapes. 🙂

  3. Glorious carpets, Sue. I feel myself wanting to have a virtual roll in same. Not good for the plant life however.

  4. Lovely, Sue. Gorgeous flowers and love the landscapes too. 🙂

  5. Gorgeous, I’ve never heard of Piano Grande, so thank you!

  6. These are gorgeous Sue. Italy really provides some stunned backdrops. Beautifully captured.

  7. I’d like to be off to Italy for some photos (and food and wine and…), too. 😦 But thanks for the beautiful views.

  8. And very bonny they are Sue x

  9. Lovely foregrounds for stunning views – I really regret not spending more time in Italy and France. Maybe I can make up for it over the next decade or two.

  10. Those are absolutely stunning Sue!

  11. I held my breath looking at these landscapes!
    The flower-takes are great , too!

  12. Such lovely photos. And yes, the Italian landscape is quite something. I haven’t been much to Umbria, but I believe the landscape is quite similar to Tuscany. Have great travel Sue.

  13. Delightful. We just drove through the Mojave desert and it was alive with yellow and orange wildflowers. No purple ones, this year. Maybe later. At least we had a bit of rain.

  14. I missed so many photo ops, I could cry–but I drive in tandem with my husband (2 cars). If I’d stopped everywhere I wanted we would still be on day one of our drive home. The drive from So. California, up the Eastern Sierra, to Northern NV is unbelievable. Like one long hymn of gratitude. I have tried to capture it in poetry over the years and nursed some more on the way home this weekend.

  15. These photos just sing of summer.

      Glad you like these, Adrian! In both places, Wee were too early for the best showing, but at least I did get some wild flower shots!

Over to you...
