Lovely!! Would not mind having a field of those pretty flowers in my fields. I would mind walking there though... they look as if they would prick and get stuck on my clothing. : o

I've found that I have to let one pic completely finish uploading before I start another.

Thanks. It happened to a couple of series I uploaded last. I'm going to retry them.
