Crimson Clover

After passing a field of clover every day, I took these pictures of a rolling field of crimson clover the other day. A few weeks later, the clover was gone, and the owners cut the field for hay, but it was beautiful while it lasted.
I wonder what pioneer women thought of when they passed beautiful fields of wildflowers like this. Did they see that line of trees in the background and long to settle right there? Maybe build a cabin and raise their families? Or maybe just stop for the night and enjoy the view...
Maybe they rode through Texas and spotted undulating fields of Texas bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes. Take a gander at Jeff Blaylock's absolutely beautiful pictures! Oh my stars! Wouldn't you just love to have that blanketing a pasture in your front yard?
As a matter of fact, browse through all of Jeff's pictures. They are breathtaking!
