Evening Primrose


We have some of the most beautiful wild flowers here in Texas I have ever seen. I love them all, but my very favorite is this delicate little lady.

Her name is Evening Primrose. She modestly closes her delicate pedals when the sun goes down and then spreads them out to welcome the morning sun.

We are in what the weather people term an extraordinary drought - the worst of drought conditions - and I thought we wouldn't see any wild flowers this year. However, I've seen bunches of brave Blue Bonnets and Evening Primrose clinging to the edges of the highway where whatever little rain we've gotten would be likely to accumulate.

As I was walking up our sidewalk this afternoon I saw this solitary pink blossom on our rather dry lawn. A delightful gift.

Blessings,

That's a beautiful picture. Isn't it breath-taking sometimes to look at all the beauty that surrounds us? God is the most amazing artist!

Even in what we may think are the harshest of times and conditions, God still rains His love on us and His beauty can be found if we'd only look for it.

Evening primrose grows wild around here too, and is one of my favorite wild flowers. Seemingly so delicate, but it grows and thrives in some of nature's harshest habitats.

Have a blessed Sunday, dear Linda. :o)

Love and hugs,

Diane

Linda...we see those everywhere here, and we always talk about them! I had no idea they were Evening Primrose...thank you for letting me know!! I can't wait to tell my family:)

I wish I could have had you with me at Jeff's mom's on Saturday. She is getting feeble---but wanted to walk around a bit in the yard...she has some flower bushes that neither one of us could put a name to!

BUT I did see something that looked like this pretty pink flower.

Have a blessed Monday!

A sign of hope isn't it, to see a lovely flower like that bloom in the middle of drought?!
