Yesterday, I noticed some wild flowers growing near to where I leave my Jeep parked. There they were, just growing along the edge of the driveway. There were both small yellow flowers and larger bluish purple ones with little white mustaches under their noses. Here is a picture of both types of flowers:
I looked up the name of this unique and beautiful wild flower and found it to be a Butterfly Pea (Centrosema virginianum). Does the "virginianum" part mean it was first discovered in Virginia or maybe a lady by the name of Virginia first found it? Heck I don't really care where the name came from, it is a pretty wild flower:
Then a little later, I went out into the small area fenced in for the dogs off our back porch. There I found this flower:
Then I noticed all the different types of mushrooms growing there. They sprung up just after the rain. This first small one had a beautiful delicate edge all aournd it.
Then there was what looked like a puff ball that was trying to grow hair:
And my favorite ones. These are small and they seemed to have little protrusions on them at ninety degrees from each other and a dark spot in the middle. I thought that they were really beautiful:
See, you just don't have to go far to see great and beautiful things. You just have to look for them, even if they are only a few steps out your door. BTW, did you spot the new young ones just popping up? There is young one at the top of the picture and a little older one on the right side. Go take a walk around your yard and really look to see what all is going on there and have a great day, you hear?
