Looking through my pictures,I realize that it is time to share some flower shots from this summer.
So many beautiful flowers to choose from and yet I don't know which ones I want to share first.
I love the Peonies.They usually don't last very long,as they bloom during a time when we often get rains.Once these flowers get water-logged,they bow down and that is about it,but I still love their full blossoms.
What can I say about the Daisy? Even with a few petals missing it is still a pretty flower.
I think part of what draws me to the Daisy is it's simplicity,and it's strength. These flowers grow and bloom without much care.
Some of my extended family moved to a country property recently and during one of my visits there I found several lovely flowers growing among the gardens which had been allowed to grow wild.
This simple Peony was stunning,a few raindrops added to the beauty.
To me this is an old flower,one my Mom used to have in the garden. I did not know the name,so I had to look it up. I found that it is called Maltese Cross.
I think it is beautiful and so bright.
Another old favourite is the stately Delphinium.We used to grow them in our gardens,but in recent years I have not had any.They are also a very pretty flower. No this one is not lying down,I held the camera at an angle.
Give yourself fully to the adventure of today.Walk boldly along the path of life,relying on your ever-present Companion,God.
