Fragile Canvas

Today I saw a Hibiscus bush, loaded with blossoms, at the end of a driveway. Some were blooming and some were wilted in the summer heat; while others were shrivled back into a roll. I am always drawn to these beautiful flowers, so I had to stop and take a couple of photos with my iPhone. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Bits of sunlight art

Sprinkled on  fragile canvas

For my eyes only

Rolled up // stored away at dusk

Tomorrow it will be gone

Blushing Dogwoods

EER_0003

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.

Spring sunshine in every bud

Spectacular show

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.

Fall sun lights up their centers

God’s beautiful gift

Weeds or Flowers

EER_0831

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?
