Are you a wildflower? Do you find them wherever you go? Do you take photos of them? Draw them? Press them in books? Put them in tiny bottles or glasses hoping they will last for a few days?
If so, you probably are a hopelessly romantic Wildflower. Me too.
A couple of years ago, I discovered this artist....a young person....who immediately became one of my favorites. She's definitely a Wildflower! I recently ordered her book...."How to be a Wildflower", a field guide by Katie Daisy by Chronicle Books, San Francisco. It is wonderful!!!
I got my copy from amazon.com, but you can also order it from Katie
So, here are some pages from the book. Two of my favorites. And, one of my all time favorite quotes:
"MY SOUL IS MADE OF MEADOW FLOWERS"
Love these adorable birds. There are more.
I want to do this....."Walk down a dirt path at Sunset." Well, okay....I don't know where that path is yet and I don't know who I would walk down it with...but, hey....a person can imagine such things, right?
Now, you know I have trees behind my house....love this page!!!
This page isn't in it the book, but I saw it online....and boy....remember me telling you I had named the land behind me "Two Pines Park"?
I have also been to the Muir Woods in California. A not only beautiful, but also sacred place if you ask me.
Here are the two pines.....do you see the doorway to a new world? I think I do.......and so does Trixie, the grand-dog. She loves to take her walk in Two Pines Park when she stays with me. I enjoy it also.
And here is a photo of the section right behind my house....where I go every Spring to scope out the Bluets.
And, here are some of the current blossoms.........there are also white and sometimes a pinkish color making an appearance too. They are the sweetest, tiniest little flowers and I do love them so.
At about a quarter of an inch wide....they aren't really visible unless you really look for them and I do.
Every Spring. Yes....I am a Wildflower too....Katie truly is....and I bet you might be too!!!
until next time
