I remember when I was young......I just didn't "get it" when Mother would stop and oohh and aahh over flowers! Well, I'm afraid that my sisters and I have all become our mother in that respect...we love flowers. Sometime, I'll post some of my younger sister's flowers here. She has a yard filled with the fruit of her green thumb! :-)
The picture above and the three that follow are pictures I took when we lived in Arizona. Even though one thinks "cactus" when Arizona comes to mind, there are lots and lots of beautiful flowers, also.
