Flowers in his hair

Flowers in his hair

Several years ago we bought this piece of yard art at the antique store at the Carlow crossroad. It has a semi-permanent spot in one corner of our backyard. Longhorns aren’t known for wearing flowers but the iris flower leaned over just right to dress him up.

Forget-me-not

I love these flowers. Not sure why, yet their appearance, daintiness, colour, are very pleasing. They have mostly filled in a space about a foot wide between the shed and sidewalk, and are now colonizing the gravel drive just in front of the shed. It looks a bit untidy but we do not object. They are good to look at.
