I recently drove halfway across the country from Kansas to North Carolina. I had looked forward to the drive anticipating budding trees, green fields, and wild flowers. I was surprised to find that spring was not springing anywhere along my route. Maybe my return trip will be more colorful. Meanwhile, I have to be content with these photos of flowers from a springtime past.
Garden flowers circa Spring 2013
One by one I dropped each stem into a glass of water surprised how well they harmonized, each color complimenting the next. None of them competed, drowning out the others in a bid for attention. Instead, the presence of one made the next all the more beautiful.
There is a lot we could learn in the garden.
I often look out and admire wild flowers, how their colors combine freely and it is always beautifulReplyDelete
I agree. I have no reason to go to Texas currently, but the thought of the blue bonnets and some orange wildflower that blooms simultaneously dotting the landscape there this time of year is calling to me. So far I have kept myself from taking a 10 hour Sunday drive!Delete
"Instead, the presence of one made the next all the more beautiful" - Love it.ReplyDelete
That thought keeps tugging on my heartstrings right now when the world feels so divided.Delete
They are gorgeous! Love the connection you made to the human race. We certainly have a lot to learn.ReplyDelete
Hasn't that become abundantly clear in the past year or two?Delete
