I have been taking picture of wildflowers ever since I got here, but there were not as many until recently, especially today when I hiked the Triple Lakes trail. It is a 9.3 miles trail going through boreal forest and three small lakes. Along the way, there are so many wildflowers, from red, pink, purple, to yellow and white.
As I wrote on Mother’s Day, I have never seen a flower without thinking of my mom. She would love to see the flowers I have seen today! I wish so much that I could share them with her.
Before my mom passed away, I had so much fun taking picture of flowers. I knew my mom would enjoy seeing them. I knew she would appreciate the beauty. I had a purpose when I took the pictures. I knew they would make my mom happy.
I still take pictures of flowers since they are too pretty to ignore. However, I found myself lost the purpose – I don’t know anyone would love seeing the pictures as much as my mom; I don’t know anyone would truly enjoy the beauty I brought home; I don’t have a particular person in mind to share! Hopefully, by posting them here in my blog, some of you will enjoy the beauty and the spirit of the wildflowers I took here.
