Do yourself a favor. Go and find a country road. Somewhere far away from city streets, and traffic lights, and strip malls. Somewhere with wide open spaces, and gentle breezes, and a clear view of the sky. If you can find a gravel road, that’s perfect. If it cuts through pasture land lined with fences that’s even better.

It’s wildflower season! I can’t get enough.

I LOVE seeing all the different types of flowers pop up along the roadside this time of year. It’s that early summer treat – before the intense heat sets in and burns everything up and dries it to a crisp.

Coneflowers, and Queen Anne’s lace, and Black-Eyed-Susans, and lots of others that I don’t know the names of.

If you find yourself following me down a country road, please pay attention. I’m highly likely to stop my car unannounced, and hop out to pick a bunch of flowers.

I suggest you do the same, because there’s nothing more cheerful!

A handful of wildflowers, in a vase, on the kitchen table is one of my favorite things.
