Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a bunch of flower pictures I've been putting together. I'm always bragging about how pretty it is on the prairie, so I figure it'd be only fair to share the loveliness. The first ones are actually the zinnias and cosmos from my garden--I just had to show you how lovely they look! And butterflies--man, I have such a weakness for watching butterflies and bees going about my flowers. Makes me so happy! And they're so cute! Just this evening I finally spotted one of my favorite tiny butterflies--they're a sheeny gray-blue, and just so cute. Last year they were hanging about my yellow five-petal flowers (have no idea what they were called--mom got them from walmart) in a frenzy, but this evening is the first I've seen one this year! Hopefully I'll be seeing more.
There is something just so sweet and precious about these little things, like flowers and butterflies and bees.
|These I see all the time. ;)|
|My zinnia--in Cherry Queen. I love the color! And these are the first zinnias I've done in years.|
|My last glad. Isn't it gorgeous??|
These are taken from my morning walk around the fields.
|Cactus flower. They are incredibly beautiful.|
|I have no idea what these are, but I find them so pretty.|
|Sometimes I see these. Sometimes in purple, I think.|
|These are "commonly" called hog potato--took me forever to find their name! I call them Prairie Stars. They also have a pretty, formal name--hoffmanseggia. So pretty. These are my favorite wildflowers! They smell so nice!|
Hope you all enjoyed them! Aren't we blessed to live in such a beautiful world?
