millefleurs (a thousand flowers)

At the moment, driving to town is like driving through the middle of a Millefleurs tapestry. I had never seen so many wildflowers before we came to France. The first year we were here I used to drive/walk around gasping and shrieking. It starts with snowdrops in January (whole valleys full) and works it's way up to the glorious carpet of flowers in the picture. I stopped yesterday to examine it all more carefully and take photos. It was windy so please excuse the blurriness.

Absolutely gorgeous! Your wildflowers are different from ours here in Colorado, USA, but we're having that blanket effect in the mountains, too. I need to learn how you do the photos that way - very nice.
