Turkey in Bloom

The garden centres are doing a brisk business right now.  Small annuals can be had very inexpensively.  What is amazing though is the rich variety of flowering plants in the fields, ditches and along the roadsides right where we live. Some have been cultivated, but many, like the poppies are wild.

These are one of the first plants to bloom. I love the way the flowers hang from the vine.


We can see these from the kitchen window.  The blossoms are as big as my hand and smell divine.

Lots of trees in bloom.

These little blossoms are growing in a yard that hasn't had much up keep.

By the side of the road, these little flowers are light pink.

By the side of the road, the petals are nearly transparent.


Lots of poppies along the highway.

More clumps of wild flowers.



  1. Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Makes me want to get out into my flower beds.....if it ever stops raining....
