Monday Post








These evening primroses are growing, like weeds, on the slope of the golf course. I thought I'd better "snapped" them before they were mowed down.


I decided to do a joint post, Macro Monday, because I used the macro setting and Today's Flowers, because they're flowers. Be sure to visit both sites to see what everyone else has discovered.

  15. These are so close I couldn't tell what they are. I LOVE these flowers. In southwest Missouri they used to plant them in the medians of the highways, and they'd mow them down. Here they are babied with water so they will display one pretty clump of pink!
