On A Saturday Walk . . .



I discovered this beautiful purple flowers when I went walking with some kids in their neighborhood this Saturday. The flowers were in clusters and although they are small (you can compare their size from my hand) I noticed their bold colors from afar and rushed to take these photographs. I must remind you that I can only take second shots and only with a point and shoot digital camera that fits in my pocket! The only available time and camera I have. I also got used to taking candid shots because it is the only way I can document my funny dogs and all the critters in our house Heaven! And as much as I wanted to stay and admire the flowers I had to leave fast (I have 4 kids and two dogs to watch!) but not before noticing the smaller, wild flowers growing beside the purple flowers and take a quick shot!

Again, I am sorry but I do not know the names of both flowers. But somebody will surely inform me again. I share them with Maia at MacroFlowers and for the TodaysFlowers of Luiz, Denise, Sandy and Laerte.

These are pretty wildflowers and a lovely color. You are lucky that you can have them while I'm shivering in the cold.
You have beautiful pictures, no need to complain about you camera.

To your question: yes they did, not just charging but threatening. It's an ugly story, I wrote a few lines about it in the post, with my big mouth, but I deleted it after a few minutes.

The purple flowers look like the princess flowers we have in our garden. When they are buds, the outside is like fuzz, and so soft.
