What types of wildflowers grow where you live? We’re seeing yellows and oranges and purples pop up along the roadsides and in fields around here. The cultivated gardens can be lovely, but there’s something uplifting about the blooms that grow untended. Flowers that spring out without anything besides sun, rain, snow. It’s like God scattered the seeds and sent water and warmth and–voila!–flowers dot the ground.
We drove to the mountains this weekend in search of wild daffodils. They grow against barbed wire, tree trunks, dilapidated fencing. Aren’t they cheery?
