Every Spring I search to find the first Bluets of the year. At least in my little world. And, I did.
I found them last week as I was on my morning walk. These were growing right next to the curb on the street behind my house. Hardy little Arkansas Wildflowers...I love them.
About my Morning Walk. Sometimes I walk in the morning. Sometimes I have an Afternoon Walk. On a really good day...I walk in the a.m. AND the p.m. I'm trying to get some exercise. I feel I need a reward to do this as I'm not really an exercise person. Finding little beautiful things like Bluets is, in my mind, a great reward!!!
They are very TINY! Here is a little Bluet as compared to my index fingernail. It's a wonder to me that I even see them, but really, I do try hard to find them.
One lone little flower....so sweet!
And, then, several in a little row. Aren't they just dear? By the way, Bluets can be blue, purple, pink or white. Who knew?
Really, they are so small I thought you might want to see them in comparison to other things....like a spool of thread, or my thimble. And, aren't they cute in this little vintage glass I have?
Here you can see the whole plant, from roots up. About an inch and a half. Just dear.
And, here is a little thought for you...one I love:
"Just living is not enough...
one must have sunshine, freedom,
and a little flower."
Hans Christian Anderson
Hope you are having a good week!!!
