Walked around the loop part of my driveway yesterday. I needed a little exercise (my wife told me so) and I decided to take my camera with me and walk with my wife. You wouldn't think in such a short distance around the loop and the loop right near my house that there would be such a variety of nature's beauty. Sometimes one has to look a little closer than at other times. Let me explain with a few pictures. Sorry about this first one. The camera focused on my hand instead of the flowers, but you get the idea just how pretty these three types of little flowers are:
I have no idea what this plant is, but I thought it was beautiful in its own right:
Here are two different varieties of yellow flowers:
This next one, the Coral Bean (Erythrina herbacea), is one of my favorites and it also was found growing right next the driveway. It is a tall, stately, beautiful plant.
Mmmm, they were really sweet and oh so good. I just love wild foods and the wild beauty of nature, not just what grows around my driveway, but all of it. Anytime you are out, take notice of what is growing and where. Even in the city, I have seen green trying to pop up between the cracks in the sidewalk. Once we humans disappear from this earth, it will not take the plant life long to wipe out all signs that we were ever here. Now, have a great day and enjoy the beauty around you, you hear?
