Can you predict the future?

What will these flowers be when the buds open all the way?

Traveling to Pink (Travel Theme, March 21 2014)

I went looking for photos of “pink” to illustrate this week’s travel theme from Ailsa. You’d think I would have plenty of local pink pictures – we normally have lots of pink spring flowers here. But the first really good image of pink I found, after searching for quite a while, comes from almost a third of the way around the world.

In that deep snow? No matter.
I’m glad to see you.

Travel themes: Short

This week’s theme at Where’s My Backpack is “short”. Ailsa has some great photos of shortness – don’t miss her post! And then, of course, share your own short pictures. But, to keep this from getting too long, here’s my photo:

A Floral Puzzle

OrangeDayliliesPeople are perfectly willing to grow ordinary orange daylilies which can fend for themselves happily as wildflowers.

So why doesn’t anybody grow Queen Anne’s Lace?

20130807QueenAnnesLaceIt’s hardy (at least in my part of the world); to put it another way, you just can’t seem to kill it. And it’s pretty. Seriously, why isn’t it a popular garden flower? Does anybody out there know?
