Garden Bloom Day: A Natural Beauty

They're back!  Those beautiful wild pink evening primroses have come up again!   





They even manage to make my messy yard look beautiful.

I can take no credit for planting or cultivating these lovelies.
They were a gift from nature and come up faithfully every year.
I just be careful to mow around them.

See more lovelies at
Garden Bloom Day.

This is Wherever Wednesday



Welcome to This is Wherever Wednesday!   At Wherever Wednesday we share those little moments that really show the character of the places we live.  Those times that just make you think "This is Texas"  (or New Jersey, Omaha,  Afghanistan, Berlin or WHEREVER.)

As always, I want to share a couple of the highlights from last month.   


Please leave your "This is Wherever" posts on the linky below (whether your wherever is "Alaska, Amsterdam or the Ivory Coast").    If you're still a little uncertain what that means, this post over at Budget Blond will help you out.  And, though it's not required, I'd love if you would grab the This is Wherever button on the sidebar and share it in your post or somewhere else on your blog!  Thanks for participating!

This is Wherever Wednesday



Welcome to This is Wherever Wednesday!   At Wherever Wednesday we share those little moments that really show the character of the places we live.  Those times that just make you think "This is Texas"  (or California, Tibet, or Paris, or Africa or WHEREVER.)


As always, I want to share a few of the highlights from last month.   Well, actually, I'm gonna share all three posts because I liked them all!  
  • There's Magic Out There walked us through the Western Heritage Parade and Cattle Drive in San Antonio, TX.
  • New Kid on the Loch made me long for summer with her pictures of beaches in Hong Kong.  I never thought of Hong Kong and great beaches before!  I don't know why...I mean it is on the waterfront.  This is why I love this hop...makes me look at places in a new light.   

Please leave your "This is Wherever" posts on the linky below (whether your wherever is "New Mexico or Mexico, Up North, or Down Under").    If you're still a little uncertain what that means, this post over at Budget Blond will help you out.  And, though it's not required, I'd love if you would grab the This is Wherever button on the sidebar and share it in your post or somewhere else on your blog!  Thanks for participating!
