This is a plant an 87-year-old lady from Mom's church brought when Mom and Dad had her over for dinner. She had lost her husband and was a bit lonely - they all had such a fun time and are going to do it again.
This is a yellow floral wreath on a door in a little house in Mom's neighborhood. The yellow matches the yellow ribbons tied around each tree that remained for many years in wait of someone to come home that never did. The ribbons are gone, but the wreath and its stories remain.
Fresh flower pots at a home that sat vacant for a long time after a foreclosure. A young couple bought it and updated it inside and out and it's so pretty now.
When Mom first moved here she didn't understand why the people at the end of the block let the weeds grow up on the corner - thny they bloomed!
Look close as you walk and you find flowers everywhere.
No flowers, but just a dog dish with fresh water Mom puts out for the squirrels, rabbits, and birds to get a drink there among the plants she lets grow up under the 100-year-old Spruce, to give them a little protection from predators above.
On this Flower Friday add a little color to YOUR world.
