Lots in bloom but one of our favorites is finding an elusive cornflower. It is a wildflower & blooms every two years. It grows a large phallic blossom of yellow bliss. They are found occasionally along the roadside, so kinda odd where this this one has sprouted.

It’s leaves are soft w a slight fur feeling to them. After the bloom we pick seeds and hope for two more years that one will grow. Don’t recall them having a scent.

Grow, grow.

Also. A lot more deer. All doe, and close enough to take a shot if was deer season. This deer came within 300 feet and just stared at us. “Like hello human.” – then darted off back into the woods.

It’s starting to smell and feel like fall and it sucks. Daily temps mid 70’s and below 50 in the evening. Likely will have to harvest corn early. Thought we’d share some summer flower color while it lasts. Betting on an early winter.

See how many of you know the common names of. Hint – one is a balloon flower!

Beautiful view off of the farm porch this morning. Chance of rain, fluffy clouds and zero chemtrails! Rose bush in full bloom with hundreds of red flowers. Air smells sweet. Thanks God for the many blessings.

Life is good.

The Clematis (KLEma-tis) is a genus of about 300 species within the buttercup family Ranunculaceae, and they are finally blooming on the farm. It’s official no more frost!

Pretty purple flower discovered while painting the fence. Happy weekend!

Just bee happy!

It’s furry butt is covered in pollen. Wish it would spread some love on the less than flourishing pumpkin patch.

NASA Sends Mom's Flowers From Space

Outside the ground is frozen, quite possibly covered in snow and ice, and yet, stroll through a supermarket in North America or Europe in February, and you’ll be confronted with large displays of roses. We expect flowers in winter, and equatorial countries meet those expectations. A quarter of the cut flowers sold in Europe are grown in Kenya. Straddling the equator, Kenya gets steady sunlight dealt out in days that vary little in length. It’s the perfect climate for flowers year-round. The center of Kenya’s flower industry is Lake Naivasha, shown here.

The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) flying on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image of Lake Naivasha on February 2, 2008. Bright white squares mix with fields of green, tan, and purple along the shores of the lake. Sunlight glints off the long rows of glass greenhouses, turning them silvery blue and white in this view from space.

Fallow fields are tan and pink, while growing plants turn the ground bright green. Roses, lilies, and carnations are the most common flowers grown in the greenhouses and fields scattered around the lake. The large-scale industry shown here extends into small-scale rural farms elsewhere in Kenya, where smaller filler flowers are grown.

The flowers provide an important source of income to Kenya, but the industry comes with a price. Flowers are not held to the same standards for chemical residues as food products, which are tightly regulated. Strong chemical pesticides can be used on the flowers to produce the perfect, pest-free bloom, and this could pose a health risk to workers and local wildlife, including hippos, environmental groups told the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 2002. The chemicals may also have threatened the water quality of Lake Naivasha, one of Kenya’s few freshwater lakes. The Kenya Flower Council instituted a code of conduct establishing guidelines for pesticide that phases out the use of one of the most toxic pesticides.

This year I sent roses to my mom via Proflowers.  Perfect delivery, perfect flowers as promised. Will use them again! 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s.  Thanks for letting us wear our tinfoil hats and still loving us.
