Here are a variety of wildflowers which pepper the fields and country roads in our area during the spring and summer months. Wildflowers not only brighten the landscape, but also provide habitat for birds and insects and food for many animals.
“Flowers are the music of the ground
From earth’s lips spoken without sound.”

A beautiful montage
such a bounty of beauty Rebecca! I’m sure all the flowers bow to you in thankfulness.
Thanks, Wayne! I’d rather they praise the great God who made them all. 🙂
So pretty – nature makes the best gardens!
It sure does! Thanks, Eliza!
Beautiful wildflowers Rebecca … I like that I can see their names by hovering my mouse over them. I’ve seen a lot of morning glories at the Park where I walk. The bunnies are loving them. We don’t have these beautiful flowers, but we do have Queen Anne’s Lace.
We usually have morning glories about this time of year, but it’s been so hot and humid that I haven’t been getting out as much to see, plus my camera keeps fogging up. We’ve had a lot of Queen Anne’s Lace on our country road. It’s amazing how each one is different, just like snowflakes.
Our morning glories are very tiny and embedded in the grass and I haven’t seen any climbing up any chain-link fences like I usually do. I like the Queen Anne’s Lace and last year I wrote a post about them, comparing them to the doilies under the lamps in the living room. My great grandmother used to do tatting and made several doilies which are very intricate looking and holding together quite well, considering they are about 60+ years old.
The Queen Anne’s Lace do resemble doilies. Good comparison! I know you treasure the ones your Grandmother made.
I do treasure them Rebecca. These two doilies have sat under the same two lamps for decades. They’ve not even yellowed in the least. I’m attaching a link, and you can see them at the very bottom of my long-winded post.
They’re beautiful! Thanks for sharing the link.
Thanks Rebecca, the picture doesn’t really do them justice, and surprisingly they have not deteriorated or yellowed after all these decades.
Lovely…oh how the butterflies and bees love them al.
Yes they do! 🙂
Soo beautiful!! ❤
