Monochrome Madness! 3-5- and Spring

The weeks go by so quickly and always there is Monochrome Madness!  visit Leanne Cole for the wonderful gallery!

Spring is moving into summer and the weather has been unusually warm on the west coast. Here is my submission to MM. I’ve used an Obscured filter giving it a dreamy look. Buttercups though considered a lawn weed, to me are a magical carpet.

I call it “Lie down in a field of buttercups”
