Flowers in My Yard

Embrace the wild, that’s my motto. The rose of Sharon bushes are as old as the house which was built in the late fifties. The morning glory vine ? Who knows how long their tendrils have been wrapping around my bushes, shrubs, and other flowers. In Alabama, they usually are not intentionally planted unless on a arbor or trellis. The moon flower vine is in the same family as the morning glory. I planted mine from seeds and am sure my neigbor wishes I had not because they are taking over the shrubs on our propery line. I like wild; she likes manicured. The red Turks cap, I planted and have waited patiently for it to grow to this size. It dies down in the winter and comes back in the spring. If I had to pick a favorite flower, it would be zinnias. I plant them from seed in any area that is someone else tills are dug up by me. These are wildly growing in front of my house.

I capture the beauty because I am looking through a camera lens. When I look at the photographs, I see more clearly.

  1. When I look through a camera lens I see the beauty that I often miss otherwise. Especially I think the beauty of a flower is so fleeting, I always want to preserve that vision… that special moment in order to relive it again.
