Great shots! One thing I love about North Carolina are the fields of flowers along the highways, thats where I got most of mine this week..:-))

I love Iris flowers, how lovely that they plant flowers along your highways! So much nicer than ditches full of garbage.

How wonderful that your county/state plants beautiful flowers along the highways for the enjoyment of wildlife and drivers alike. The Iris are stunning and remind me of something you'd see in a botanical garden...not alongside a highway. lol!

The second photo is so unusual and lovely.

Beautiful. If I had to drive past that everyday I'd probably be late for work cause I would just have to stop enjoy, maybe with a cup of java. Love it. I like the work on the second one too. Great job.
