I took some more pictures of flowers this week.



I saw this hibiscus growing in the ditch alongside the road.


I saw these light pink morningglories on the ditchbank.


I was riding my ATV along a field edge and came upon a big bank of honeysuckle in bloom. The scent so intense it almost took my breath away.That is nothing compared to what a Gardenia will do to me. I like that smell so much I will just keep inhaling, forgetting to exhale. Sometimes I think I am going to swoon!


But these are the prettiest flowers of all, cotton blooms. This is what makes my world go around, without these all else fails to naught. I will leave you with a famous quote to remember and repeat.


A rose by any other name would still smell just as sweet, but none is as lovely as a cotton blossom to a true Southern Belle.                  Swamp Dog

    No Honeysuckle up here yet. Unless we get some rain I doubt we will get much anyway. You can tell Okra and Cotton are related plants though.

      Yes they both can stand a little dry weather, but not record drought like we are having now. Things don’t look too good for us right now, predicting temps in the upper 90’s this week, no rain.
