You’ve seen how many flowers there are this year. All that rain helps, doesn’t it?  Let’s take a look at a few of them.  Look at that one standing all by itself. I think it’s fireweed.

I can’t ever decide which color I like the best, but yellow is one of my favorites.  What about you?  What’s your favorite flower color? This is Common Tansy/Golden Buttons/ Bitter Buttons/Cow Bitter/Garden Tansy (at least I think so.)  You can just say Tansy, although I like Golden Buttons.  There are so many by the first lake!

It’s been a wonderful three plus weeks (yes, you’ll hear all about it) and now I’m back in northern Illinois. I’ve missed you!! Hopefully all of you have been doing well while I was taking my Wyoming break. I’ve seen some of you in Instagram when I could get the internet, but now I’ll be able to catch up with what’s going on in your lives and on your blogs.
