It’s been said that the Firewheel is one of the last flowers to bloom just before the heat of the summer.  We’ve had some fabulous breezes and beautiful evenings in May,  wish it would last a bit longer before the heat settles in.

I first met these two beautiful redheads when they and my own children were modeling clothing for a local ETSY shop and photographer friend Rachel when mine were 2 and 4 – all the kids are now 6 and 8!   So here we are today in a field of Firewheel,  and I’m shooting, and they are so adorable and fabulous little models.  I was pointing out all the flower names to this beauty and she liked the few Queen Anne’s lace flowers.  I think it was the Queen word  that did it for her!

I just love their little freckles!
