Inspiration and Beauty

In the midst of all the madness of preparing for my trip to the Knit and Crochet Show and the following visit from my in-laws,  I managed a wonderful short hike on our property with my sons.

So I decided to make my last post of June be some eye candy of the lovely wild flowers around my home in the mountains.  The beauty of our summers, though brief, is one of the many reasons I can tolerate our sometimes harsh winters (of course winter has a beauty of its own as well).

Wait a minute! That isn’t a wildflower! 

What a surprise, somehow we have a lovely dark blue/purple iris growing on our property.  I have no idea how it got here, but it is quite beautiful.  Hadn’t noticed it until today.
