Roadside Gardens

Who needs a garden when the roadsides provide so much beauty. I’ve had an itch to photograph them, but you don’t want to stand along a busy highway to do so! Instead, I headed for some dirt roads that I figured would not be highly trafficked. Here are just a few of the flowers blooming along the highways (and dirt roads) of Western New York in early July.
