Flower Friday - A Bounty of Beauty

Happy Flower Friday! I love the time of year when we have endless flowers!

Shyla and I have been frolicking in the flowers almost every morning. The Golden Banner are filling our meadows and tinting the world yellow!

But, if you look hard behind Shyla in the next photo, you see a purple tint of some out-of-focus flowers.

Here is one that is in focus - an Iris!

They are so short-lived here in our drought-parched area but I adore them. The bees may love them even more than I do!

Despite our dry world, a few orchids are still blooming.
I've been taking an extra water bottle each day to give the orchids drinks. I admire these tiny gems because they survive despite looking too fragile for our rough-and-tumble forest.

It is the season that seems to fly by too fast. I love the flowers - and my absolute favorites are just starting to bloom. I'll save them for next week!

  2. Wild flowers are just so beautiful. There always seems to be such a variety in color, and shapes.

  4. I have never seen wild iris or a field of yellow like this, about 60 years ago I saw a field of flocks in Georiga. Shyla looks overjoyed to be running in a field of yellow. the iris is just gorgeous. great idea with the water. would not have thought of that. I am glad I am not the only one who doesn't know fashion designers.
