"IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN" & FLOWERS


The Scarecrow was my favorite in the Wizard of Oz.  I'm going to try and make a few more of these guys.

Went for a walk around the yard last night and snapped some pics of flowers.  I let a lot of things grow that most folks would probably cut down or dig up.  I love wild flowers.  Daisies and Black Eyed Susans remind me of summers growing up. 




I dug up these tiger lilies in the rain just before they tore down an old house they were growing next to.



(are they tiger lilies without the spots?)



This little girl is waiting patiently for the blackberries to ripen

Love the fuscia color of wild sweet peas

This lily is in a rock garden in the front yard - look at all the buds!

Side of the rock garden - love purple & gray together

Just a sittin' spot

Hey Lisa...

Your scarecrow is too darn cute! He is also my fav and I made my daughter a Halloween costume a couple years ago of him!

You have some of my all time favorite flowers...sweet peas, black eyed susans and tiger lilies (I call them that too, but not sure if we're right?)

Have a Blessed Day,
Traci

Cute scarecrow Lisa! And pretty flower pics. My garden is overflowing with lots of the flowers others call weeds. Personal preference I guess.
