This photo was taken at one of our favorite campgrounds, Coachlight RV in Carthage, MO. It is at the intersections of I-44 and I-49. They have beautiful fields of wild flowers that are a joy to behold.

Bright, glowing and very colourfully attractive banner. As Fleur imagines rightly, how that field would be looking!

Thank you for the gorgeous banner. I'm sure our Northern friends appreciate the color right about now, but even I went, "Ooh" and started trying to identify all the flowers. Thumbs up

You are so right! Especially in view of the early snow storms; need all the color we can get! Smiling

@TBGDN You're welcome, Leon. We lived in Northern Illinois for 35 years so I remember the snow and cold all too well!
