Flower Power


My hometown of Wichita, Kansas is blessed with a wonderful place called Botanica.  This year we also received an early Spring accompanied with nourishing rains and the result in the garden is spectacular--but then, I think every Spring in Kansas is spectacular.  

On my most recent visit, the iris and the peonies were putting on a display.  Come walk with me and I'll show you a few of my favorites...









This one smelled soooo good.
I just love to bury my nose right in the heart of the flower and breathe...


Now for a stroll by the early peonies...there will be more later.








And, I'll leave you with a lilac and a butterfly.


Hope your blood pressure has lowered, your pulse slowed, and a sense of the miraculous is in your spirit.

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate you more than I can say.
