Everything lovely is springing up!


It has been a lovely rainy day today and we have been getting much needed rain off and on these past few weeks. With this heaven sent moisture, the acres are dotted with color from the many variety of wildflowers.  There is a sweet fragrance on the April breeze that blows across the wild fields. 


From the white ox eyed daisy,
the red Indian blanket, and purple prairie aster,
to the many varieties of yellow and orange daisy, the ground 
floor is covered. 
The woods holds it's own beauty with the red berries of the turkey pear
and the conifer bush. 
one of my very favorite of yellow daisy that grows here is called 
Thymophylla tenuiloba (Dahlberg Daisy)
It has very tiny, vibrant, yellow daisies and dark green fringe type leaves

I dug up a clump and planted them in a terra cotta pot.
There is a container of purple prairie aster behind this.  They 
make this one spot in the garden......cheery! 
I am not a big television watcher but I do like to watch a movie
now and then.  I just watched the movie .....(link below)
Don't let the title mislead you........it is not a dark movie. 
It is based on a true story of a man who searches for new and rare breeds of
butterflies.  There is a little humor and a bit of sadness in this film.
I enjoyed watching it. I hope this finds that  you are enjoying pretty 
springtime days.  Tell me, what is springing up in your back yard?
I would love to hear!
