My roses are blooming like crazy this week. I’m so glad they made it through our brutal winter of last year; they seem stronger than ever.

the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.”

(I’ll be on a vacation for a few days. I hope to return with some photos to share. Happy creating!)
Now in full bloom, the peach color of these lilies really lights up in the sun. Enjoy!

Various wildflowers I’ve spotted around my yard or nearby. So much variety in nature. Have a great Wednesday!
I have a funny story about this flower. Last year, I pulled my hollyhocks thinking they were weeds. The good new is that I didn’t pull out the root, and they returned this year. Fortunately I still have these beauties in my garden. If you look closely, you’ll see a star in the center of each flower. 😉
These wild berries were spotted at a local park not far from where I live.
Beginning to open
A yellow rose adds warmth to the view.
High Voltage Rose
Around my yard, the roses are waking up. This bright one is called a ‘High Voltage Rose’.
