Seen on Our Road

Pretty little weed blooming someday soon.


Tree root surrounded by newly sprouted undergrowth...


Ferns unfurling.... soon to be standing tall.....


Blooming weeds near a decaying shed.....


Signs of times gone by at an abandoned farmhouse.... wagon wheels and tulips still blooming. When were they planted? Most likely decades ago. Who says tulips don't re-bloom. Some do.

gorgeous rustic, peaceful pics! The tulips that surround our home have been planted over a 35 year period. Each year the original owners would add to the collection. I actually tried planting some the first year and every hole i dug i found bulbs, which then the bulbs i planted kept getting dug up by the squirrels, so i enjoy the old ancient blooming tulips. (and daffodils, hyacinth, etc)

Gorgeous pix! I'm glad to see the green and yellow replacing the brown and gray.

Beautiful pictures! It's amazing what you can find if you just take the time to look, even in a city neighborhood. We have tulips that come up every year, too. And strange little purple flowers (squill?)...oh, and miniature daffodils!
