Beautiful Day


It’s 80 degrees today, partly sunny and breezy, so of course I had to go walking and soak up some warmth before the cold comes back. I was amazed at how many things had bloomed since last week. There are dandelions all over that weren’t around just two days ago. Now most people hate these little weeds, but I love them. Not only are the yellow blooms beautiful, but I also like the fuzzy tops when they go to seed. And they’re delicious to eat when mixed with a milder green. Here are the photos I snapped with my phone while out.

  1. THis is the perfect time of the year, of Spring, to rally witness the renewal of nature in its bloom, from the dormant winter to the growing hopes of Summer and into the fruition of Autumn; the perfect time indeed!

    Thanks fro the inspiring post you have published, and for the thought inducing process it resonated in my mind!




  2. What an amazing garden you have created Liza, is that an old cabin nestled in there???


    • Thanks so much. Most of these are actually random flowers I saw while out walking. There’s a creek close to my house and I walk along it quite often and those old abandoned buildings are on the other side. I love trying to figure out what they were used for. The larger one could have been a home, but then again they could have both been farm buildings. I’m thinking of doing a painting of one of them. 🙂


  3. Once they start growing in the spring / summer they need lots of water. If we don’t water daily (northern Florida) the lower leaves start to turn yellow and the plant droops fast. The same thing happened with ours in SC.
