Heads or Tails - Flowers

Today's theme is:

HEADS - Flower

Every spring I really enjoy seeing these flowers along the roadsides. Last year I was pleasantly surprised to find some in my front flowerbed, though slightly disappointed that mine bloomed white, while I really, really like the purple ones. This year, I got purple!

Along the railroad tracks last spring:

In my flowerbed this spring:
Purple (after the) Rain

Since they grow wild everywhere, maybe some people would consider these a weed? I choose to consider them beautiful flowers, and I'm happy to have them to enjoy, however they came to live in my flowerbed.

Visit the home of Heads or Tails to see more participants and join in.

  3. Weed, wildflower, or intentional planting, it doesn't matter. They're lovely. I'm glad they came to be in your flowerbed so you can enjoy them.
