A Walk Down Memory Lane 4

On today's Walk Down Memory Lane I invite you to join me in the flower garden.
These are once again pictures taken from Jake's collection of old slides.
I will not comment except to identify those flowers which I know.
The well known Sunflower.

These are Daisy like flowers common in many gardens.
A wild fruit blossom,possibly cherry. Lupins,putting on a grand display. Another common,yet beautiful flower,the rose.
I don't have a name for this one.
An Iris standing tall.
This is a creative shot,zooming out while depressing the shutter button.
This is Delphinium in bud.
A close-up of a Columbine.
Lilacs in spring.
A delicate Tulip.
Another Tulip,with a totally different shape.
More Lupins.
Some more of the Daisy like flowers.
This is a wild flower,the Closed Gentian.
These flowers do not open more than this.
Some delicate wild flowers.
Springtime blossoms
A grass seed head.
Another un-named wild flower.
Enjoy happiness,treasure joy. And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies(or any flowers) of the field grow.
They do not labor or spin.
If that is how God clothes the grass of the field,...
will He not much more clothe you? Matthew 6:28 + 30 Small print in the verse above is my words.


  1. Thanks Ruth... I love seeing all of your spring and summer blossoms. The Lupins really caught my eye... VERY pretty!!!! My Mother had gorgeous flowers when I was growing up. I wish I had have paid more attention to them BACK then.

    Have a wonderful day.
