Henbit and Buttercup Field

I particularly enjoy the fields along the roadside as I travel back and forth to North Carolina in the spring before the crops are planted. There is such a beautiful mix of complementary colors. There is the purple carpeting of a weed called henbit juxtaposed against the bright yellow buttercups. Woven through these are vibrant patches of green spring grass. Up close to the road, lining the ditches, is vegetation still wearing the rusty reds and oranges of winter sleep. Such a simple landscape, but rich in coloring.
