The North Carolina Department of Transportation planted fields of Poppies and Lupines near 2 different exit ramps that are a 10 minute drive from our house. I love poppies with their hairy stems and abstract petals and patterns. Most of the poppies are orange with a few pink thrown in.
There are a few wildflowers taking advantage of the open area with sun and fertilizer. I found this phlox along the edge of the clearing. Since there was a lot of space between the flowers, I decided to do an in camera double exposure to make it look more like a field of phlox.
