These are parsley blossoms. They look delicate, but they have staying power. Parsley grows so easily here in North Carolina. And it grows in abundance so I let it bolt. They make for lovely arrangements indoors, too.
Even next to my fake, purple flowers on the mantle.
You don’t need a green thumb. They do pretty well on their own.
That rose has seen better days though.😬
“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” – Sir David Attenborough
He has inspired my 11-year old son, Hank to love this planet and all the living things that share it with us.
Thank you for again and again, Sir David, for opening up our world, and our eyes, to the glory and beauty of this amazing world. You inspire us every day. Inside and out.
I’ve been waiting for this moment for two years.
They were not open this morning, but as I pulled into the driveway about an hour ago, I could see that brilliant purple.
Awe. Like first time you see that fledgling sprout push its way through the soil.
In fact, I gasped.
I wish I could tell you their specific name, but I have no clue.
They are majestic no matter what their official name may be.
