I took a little road trip with Mom to get this photo. She passed this place one day and immediately called me to let me know I had to photograph it.
The people at this house have planted yards and yards and yards of gorgeous wildflowers in the ditch in front of their house. It's an incredible sight, because this field of flowers stretches for at least 50 yards.
The flowers themselves are delicate, with just four tissue-paper petals overlapping in two layers. I'd love to know what they are.
And another bonus for them? No mowing the ditch!
Beautiful flowers + no mowing = win-win situation.
