Wonderful Wildflowers!

While camping and hiking last weekend, we saw so many gorgeous wildflowers everywhere!  I adore them.  I wish I knew what kinds of flowers they all are.  We also spotted some very neat berries and leaves!  I’m not sure, but I think that the dark purple “berries” might actually be Oregon Grapes!

Some happy little quotes:

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars. – Martin Luther

Earth laughs in flowers. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Hamatreya”

And 'tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
– William Wordsworth, "Lines Written in Early Spring," Lyrical Ballads, 1798
