Birdfoot Violet

First official wildflower of the season.
These petit wildflowers are about the size of a quarter and I found them down by the river.
Makes me want to run out and buy a macro lens. I've wanted to get one for a while but other things keep getting in the way; like groceries and the mortgage payment.

You don't need a macro lens...these are gorgeous...furthermore, if they are sharp, just crop and enlarge!

No, silly, we don't live at Disneyworld. We live at Stone Creek which is like a resort...but The Villages is designed in such a way that I kid about it being a Disneyland for adults.

The Purple ones are Birdfoot Violet? I've always wondered what they are called!!!

Hi Barb...I was trying to compliment you... :-)

I know all about "need" and "want." I've got a closet full of stuff that I "needed" and I still "need" a lot more. Only now I'm playing golf again, so I'm finding I "need" a bunch of new golf equipment!
