Flowers (from several years ago)

Our winter so far has been very mild, with quite a few beautiful sunny days.  Our grass is far greener now than it was in the severe heat of this past summer, and so far the frost hasn't yet killed off many of the plants.  Still, in winter I often need a little cheering up.  And flowers (even photos of flowers) make me happy, more so the older I get.  And.....these photos were wasting away in my computer files, so I thought I would pull them out for a general spread of cheer.  We usually plant a mix of Texas wildflowers, and every year the mix turns out a little different, you never know which flowers will do the best.  These pictures are from our first efforts, probably around 2007.

African Daisies and a Bluebonnet

As far as flowers go, these are all on the more humble side.  "And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." -- Matthew 6:29 KJV
