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 and Wildflower Wednesday

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!
