A wildflower bouquet

.
Israel is in its glory in winter and spring as the winter rains bring forth a riot of color from formerly brown dry fields. Hard to imagine that this field on a moshav not far from me was ever brown and dry, isn't it?
.
.
Looking at this kaleidoscope of nature's bounty I couldn't help but want to take it home, a wildflower bouquet* of my own.
.
Look here for more Ruby Tuesday shots from around the world.
.
* Listen to track 8. And then go listen to all the rest of them too. Better yet, download the whole album to have for your very own.
.

My photography is now available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

If the photo you're wishing for is something you've seen here on the blog which isn't in my etsy shop yet just let me know and I'll happily list it for you.

Wow, it looks like a painting.
Yep, we're going to miss those flowers.
Thanks for the link to moshav. I learned a thing or two.

Beautiful bouquet of wildflowers.

Mojo said...

Monet would envy such an image. Well played Robin, well played indeed.

Lauren said...

I love this picture!

Daryl said...

Mojo is right .. Monet would be envious ..

Annie said...

omigosh! I'm swooning. I want to dance through the field and spin and jump and laugh and . . . oh heck, you get it.

Auntie E said...

Oh I just love it, Looks like a water color Painting. I will have to checkout your sale site. I didn't know you sold your work. That's great. I'm in the process of creating a Vintage Sewing room and would love to have some new art work.

mother nature paints a lovely picture. Nicely caught :)

moneythoughts said...

When I saw the photo, I said to myself the same thing Dina said, "it looks like a painting." Perhaps a Van Gogh painting, or a Monet. This field would have been a beautiful video. I know, I ask for too much. : )

How strange that blogspot has changed my name to that of my post!

RNSANE said...

You're an Israeli impressionist with a camera! Simply splendid!

Dave said...

What a lovely scenery indeed.

Titanium said...

Colors that would make a painting cry in envy... beautiful, Robin!

Ralph said...

We don't often think of a dry and arid land of only gray and brown hues, real drab earth tones. Thankfully. Spring is is place and the bold pastels give such a lively look in the valley, the subtlety of color adds a colorful carpet below...

Thom said...

That is just beautiful :)

marcia@joyismygoal said...

Felisol said...

I visited you photo site. Lots and lots of rare pictures there.

Monica said...

I love ALL the color, this could be a watercolor painting or such. It would also work for the Mellow Yellow Photo theme. =) Beautiful!

Marites said...

woah! beautiful! and those colors! happy RT!

Mimi said...

Robin, this is stunning!
The little bit of wild grass in the background accentuates the beauty of the wild flowers in the foreground.
I love poppies!

EG Wow said...

It's amazing! It looks so very cheerful!

The Cunning Runt said...

That's just gorgeous, on a scale which seldom occurs here in MA, USA.

Wammy said...

When I first pulled up your blog and saw the header I too thought it was a painting. How beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

Ewa Munchkin said...

it makes me want to lie down and look at the sky through the flowers...

Stephanie V said...

How beautiful. All the more so when it's such an amazing transformation of the landscape. The poppies are stunning!

Raven said...

What a lovely shot! There's something magical about fields of flowers, isn't there? Spring has come here except for the temperature. Still chilly.

Johnny Nutcase said...

what an excellent field of blooms - gorgeous!

dirt clustit said...

as wild and as natural as bouquets get.

Nice!

Pagan Sphinx said...

A splendid scene. I'm glad I had a chance to see this one.

Pagan Sphinx said...

P.S. I love the "breast fest" logo. I too am a proponent of breastfeeding. When my children were little, I was a peer counselor and an advocate for nursing moms.

Have you ever seen the youtube of Selma Hayeck nursing a starving child in Africa? I found it very genuine, though some would argue it was wasn't. (shrug)

Marice said...

beautiful! love the mixed of yellow and red :)

u may view mine too here

Patti said...

The field of colors is wonderful ~ It is like an Impressionist painting.

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Robin. I'm about a day late in posting. l

boliyou said...

Patti's right. It really does look like an impressionist painting. Great pops of color!

Grace said...

Hello Robin. Happy Belated Ruby Tuesday!

I love impressionist paintings and this photo of red and yellow flowers truly resenbles.
Thanks for the link to the Moshav. I'd like to know if the settlement is operational today- are vegetables grown in the fields?

Great link to the "Wildflower bouquet" song. Nice and folksy.
