Daylily… the name given to this species of flower which typically last no more than 24 hours. Most flowers open in early morning and wither during the following night. Thankfully God is more generous with us.
A country wedding table…. warm, welcoming, low-key and gorgeous! There seems to be a turning back to home weddings, simple, wild flowers, home-cooked food and having your friends help with the celebration…. and I love it!
A back road in central Florida. A very peaceful spot that hasn’t been taken over by strip malls, gas stations and too many vehicles. Florida has a split personality…. international, exotic, theme parked, over populated, fast paced winter refuge and then there are dense brushy hammocks of pine and oak, palmetto prairies, large and small horse farms, rolling acres of peanuts, hay and watermelons and lots of quiet, sleepy communities that are totally country. I prefer the totally country.
The Gulf Fritillary Butterfly has silver spots on the underside of their wings that glisten in the sunlight. They love the wild passion vine and lay their eggs on the vines that grow all over central Florida. I am thankful to have a pasture that they make themselves at home in.
