Yellow and Brown

I love the color combinations that Nature puts together all year round and especially during the growing season when flowers become art exhibits. It is true of the yellow and brown Iris. There is so much to appreciate all around us.

There is something very magical in observing lupine blooms with a mountain backdrop. I look forward to this wonderful experience all year long, I breathe in the sky and the earth as my heart sings a song of gratitude.
