Flowergram II

I couldn’t let another weekend pass without sharing some of the flowers in our neighborhood…

My favorite Okie wildflower perked up its head recently and said, “Pick me!  Pick me!” (not as in:  pick me and take me inside and plunk me in a vase.)  No, that little beauty is too free-spirited to sequester indoors.  (But it did graciously pose for a photo.)

As I wandered closer, a bevy of beauties peeked through the grass.  They looked like young girls at a school dance, shyly begging to be noticed, self-consciously hoping…

I assured them that they were lovely and thanked them for gracing our back yard.  (The hillside is covered with them now!)  There are benefits to “group therapy” for young flowers… and young girls.

In the front yard, our irises bloomed with wild abandon.

I said wild abandon…

This is the land that I’ve come to know and love.  There’ll be time for yard work (later…), but for now, I’m content to marvel at the beauty of untamed Spring.

Around the bend and up the hill, our neighbor’s cactus was in bloom.  Allow me to zoom in on the object of my affection before the full sunlight blinds you…

Doesn’t God’s handiwork leave you in awe?  The fact that blessings like these are within walking distance of our house makes me feel especially grateful.

And then there’s the magnificent magnolia tree next to my office…

There’s a story waiting to be told in that tree.  But for now, I’ll leave you with a picture and a promise to tell it soon.

Happy Flowergram!

Enjoying life one blossom at a time,

    • If only we didn’t have to work… :) But blogging and gardening are things to look forward to, right?
      Glad you liked the rocks — I’m kinda partial to them, too!
