These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Flowers

.
Some of the wildflowers I dug along the roadside and transplanted to my yard have survived.




A wild cousin of the Aster.











These grow thick over time and I love the delicate little blossoms.












One of my favorites, the Mexican Red Hat. I'm especially delighted that this one survived. It appears that this is one of the two-toned ones. It's the only one that survived, so I need to bring home a few more of these. I brought home two or three, I think.









Not wildflowers, but to my delight, the daisies I planted a few weeks ago are blooming.













Aren't they exquisite? I absolutely love daisies!
