Wildflowers

My joints have hurt all day.  I have no idea what is going on but I feel like a rickety old man and it is seriously bumming me out.

I thought a long passeggiata (Italian for stroll) would help loosen the joints and maybe clear some clouds from my brain.

I decided to walk down to the next town where there are gobs of wildflowers growing in the ditch.

Along the way I passed these adorable little bunnies.  Actually, they are not little, they were huge.  These pictures do not do their size justice.

I love the coloring on the dark bunny.  His front left paw is white, which makes him even cutter but he wouldn’t stick out his leg for the camera.

Of course I had to pick the wildflowers and cart them back home where I tried to make a nice bouquet.  I originally imagined a large messy bouquet, but no matter what I did it just looked strange so eventually I settled on a nosegay-type of arrangement.  Turns out, wildflowers are not like florist flowers, sometimes they look better in a ditch by the road than on your kitchen counter.
