I always loved that saying. I grew up on a dead - end street that had a woods at the end. And I loved to wander around, looking at all of the flowers that grew in there. Violets and Jack in the Boxes are the ones I remember, although there were others.
We have a raised bed in front of our house and this is what grows in there during this time of year.
These pictures were taken over a week ago. I love these little flowers.
Not sure what they are called, I call them star flowers, they are delicate and I like their color.
There are other small flowers in there, but since I planted them about ten years ago, I have forgotten what they are.
