Hello Equilibrium, what a lovely scene! where and when was this taken?
Thank you for sharing it with us,
Sincerely, Josephine

Hi Josephine, I took this photo this past year in late spring or early summer when the countryside was one wave after the next of undulating Dame's Rocket in bloom. It is a beautiful plant. Such a shame it naturalized to such extent throughout my region.There's so much of it in bloom at that time of year that it reminds me of your native Texax Bluebonnets. Undeniably a gorgeous display of Hesperis though and thank you so much for the compliment. My photography is sort of hit or miss as I rely on auto settings exclusively.
