Some Things We've Seen

Taking a nice ride is one of the things we can still enjoy during these trying times - we do have masks and gloves at the ready, in case there is an emergency - but so far it has just been fun - and beautiful.  Just wanted to show you some of the pretties that we've seen on our rides.
 These pretty hollyhocks were growing in a little patch alongside the road - near farm fields - must have been planted by some friendly birds - no other garden or flowers in sight.  I love the pale color!

 Daisies and lavender - perfect early summer flowers.
 And one day, while sitting on our deck - these interesting clouds came scudding across - the trees are in the woods across the street from our house and most are well over 40 feet tall.
 Taken from my comfy chair in the living room - a Flicker sits on the support for the feeder - they love the suet cakes.
 An old barn in a freshly cut hay field.
 Orange Lilies - such bright colors.
 And some bunnies in the grass - nibbling and playing games.

California Poppies - one of my all time favorites!!!!!  Do you have a favorite flower or two?

I like hollyhocks too! And other "heritage" annuals like peonies and such.

Beautiful sights seen along your drive. It's hard to choose a favourite flower. I like so many of them - hollyhocks and sweet peas, daisies and roses, hydrangeas and zinnias- every season has such wonderful flowers and foliage.

I think I have one pack of hollyhock seeds. I wonder if they can be planted in a pot. We used to have them lining the driveway when I was a child. I have only recently seen some planted along the train tracks but they are not so tall as those I remember ... or maybe it is because I am taller than when I was a kid.
