Flowers Everywhere

I took a trip to wine country here in Loudoun County last week and remembered a huge field of Queen Anne's Lace that I had seen about three weeks prior.  I was hoping that the flowers were still blooming and I had to stop and take some photos.  The flowers had mostly gone by, but there were still plenty in bloom. 

An old white oak, probably nearing the end of its life.  We've lost a lot of them in the local area.

I also couldn't resist stopping to take some pictures of some bales of hay.

 The road to my dreams

 A pretty stand of bamboo

Another beautiful white oak.  This one still alive.

 I also saw this family of deer feeding in a meadow.  

And finally the real beauty here in Virginia
