Sunday Road Trip

On the road again
color assault
riot of Scotch broom in cautionary yellow
prairies under blankets of camas, the blue of a Noxema jar in the sun
deciduous trees clothed in finest spring green
cumulus cotton puffs floating above the purple mountain majesty
drawing attention to the impossible brilliance of Queen Rainier
not to be outdone by orange meets orange
meets lavender.

    1. It was a beautiful day. I exited I-5 at Rochester, trying to find a parallel road through the prairie that is so beautiful in the early morning. There isn’t really one, I turned this way and that on any thru road going generally north. And that’s how I discovered the camas is blooming. I think it will be Mima Mounds for Mother’s Day!
