Blushing Dogwoods


We spent some time this week in Virginia with my son and family. Driving up through the mountains to the Shenandoah Valley is a beautiful ride. Their season is about three weeks behind North Carolina. The red bud trees and the pink and white dogwoods were all in bloom.  This one was across the street from my son’s house.

The Glory of the Morning


When I looked out the window this morning I saw the Morning Glories  vining all over the chain link fence in the back yard. The sun was shining through the beautiful fall leaves of the trees all around. It was hitting the blue flowers shining out through the green leaves. I had to get some photos.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Weeds or Flowers


This beautiful miniature flower was growing along my garden fence and entangling my blueberry bush. It looks like a tiny morning glory, but seems to bloom all day long. As I pulled the vines off the bush I thought, “How interesting it is that we go to the garden store to buy flowers that sometimes grow when we get them home. Perhaps we should consider growing weeds instead buying flowers!??

Today we have poetry in weeds?
