I was walking out in the yard this afternoon and noticed this flower growing in the wooded area of our yard. I don’t know what it is.
When I married my husband many years ago I really didn’t know much about plants and flowers. My mother-in-law is the most flower knowledgeable person I know. and I have always been amazed at what an awesome green thumb she has.I have learned so very much from her. Every Spring she gets excited to go to places like Lowes and the Farmers Markets to pick out plants for the season. For the past ten years or so she fills her deck with all kinds of wonderful plants and she will sit out there and enjoy them so much. At the end of the Summer she blesses any of us in the family with the plants we would like to have. This is always so much fun. I have some lovely orchids,some palms and one of my favorite plants an awesome Ming Arelia. She will be 83 this year and at the first of Spring she was already getting excited to go ” plant shopping ” She loves getting her hands in the dirt.
Here she is having a good laugh with our son. These pictures were all taken this past year. I will have to do a post on what has been going on with her now. She is such a giver and I was thinking about how important it is to sow good seeds so that we reap good crops. We can sow seeds of kind words or good deeds or even a smile. I have seen people sow seeds out of anger, retaliation and being hurt and I see the kind of crops it produces, We should all want to harvest good crops and it all depends on the seeds we start with!
I hope someone recognizes the flower at the top of the page and can tell me what it is. Do you have a green thumb and grow any unusual flowers?
