The First Rose of Summer!

I saw it today, at the bottom of the lawn blooming inconspicously where the mowed meets the wild. The first rose of summer!

Meanwhile in the forest out back God’s glory is unfolding in the wee things that spring up unattended…

Calypso Orchids, just inches tall, spring up in cheery trailside patches.

On a slope above this mountain stream I had a long sit one morning…

At my side dainty blossoms hung in the protection of bristly spines…

Traipsing off to find a new trail home I found Blue Clematis dancing in the woods–lovely wild things!

And once again the beginnings of domesticated beauties grace my own doorstep…

 

Needless to say, I am delighted to see flowers returning!
