“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.” ~Emma Goldman

{…agree with the above quote..& I would rather have wild flowers picked from the side of the road on my table, then any rose 🙂 }

Such a beautiful time of year. The wild flowers are FULL in bloom every where I drive.

I stopped to pick some yesterday and almost { accidentally } took home a few little critters along with the flowers;)

Day 235; A garden of peacefulness

Day 235 of 365; A garden of peacefulness

“Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.” ~Lindley Karstens

What a glorious evening…

My neighbors daughter found a sweet and sticky little tree frog, so I ran inside to get my SLR Camera, and we attempted to get him to stick to one of the flowers in my garden…this photo was taken after he jumped off about 2 times… what a cute little guy ….

Day 154; The calm of the color purple…

Day 153; The calm of the color purple…

I do not recall this, but my older sister has reminded me of it a few times. When I was really little, my big sister told me that I couldn’t like the color pink because it was her favorite… so I had no choice but to pick another color- so I chose the color purple. {This makes me chuckle, just a little bit}

Now I love every color, and appreciate that us humans can see ANY color at all. But the color purple, has such a calming effect. Many of my perennial flowers are now blooming out in my garden, and I just love looking at them. This morning after watering my flowers, I noticed how beautiful the Iris’ looked with the water drops on them.

I normally would have grabbed my big SLR Camera, but this time I thought I would try to take a nice “macro” style photo using just my iphone. I edited the photo using the Instagram App {LOVE Instagram, if you use it on your iphone make sure to find me on there; kel_marie }.

…{now tell me, does the color purple calm you?!}

To see a fresh image of an Iris in full beautiful bloom that I took this morning WITH my SLR camera, just visit here.
