The Wildflower parade out back…

A succession of wild flowers in the yard announce the procession of spring into summer.  First dandelions, then wild strawberries…

Then the Wolf Willow (aka Silverberry) deodorizes the whole outdoors with the sickening pungency of its deceptively inconspicuous yellow bells…


And now wild roses are blooming everywhere! This one’s a little bedraggled after a night of rain…

New to us is the quantity of pollen the spruce, fir, and pines produce here.  We rode through a veritable pollen storm on our tandem the other day and our hands, arms, and legs were coated with pale yellow ‘dust’ as though we’d been playing in a bucket of sidewalk chalk!

It’s everywhere indoors too.  Sure glad I’m not allergic!


And once again I have my very own flowers on my own little porch to light up my life ( ;


“So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD.
His going forth is as certain as the dawn;
And He will come to us like the rain,
Like the spring rain watering the earth.”

Hosea 6:3 NASB

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up,
So the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.

Is.61:11 NASB

  1. The Wolf Willow flowers smell heavenly to me Linda.
    If you like flowers check out Waterton Lakes National Park in mid June during their Wildflower Festival. I have never seen such an amazing display of flowers. I am sure you would love them.
