Rainy Days Need…

Hello everyone! Here we are back again on this rainy and cool autumn day!  Perhaps you want rain where you live, it is a good and necessary thing sometimes.   But it’s always nice to have some bright sunshine on those rainy days.  I can’t bring the sunshine, but I can bring you some sunny brightness in the way of flowers.  So, whether their are clouds overhead, or it just feels like there is, I hope you will enjoy this selection of bright flowers.IMG_4524

Above is the ox-eye daisy.  Who makes up these names anyway?  Oh well, a pretty flower.yellow loosestrife

Above is the yellow loosestrife, also called swamp candle.  They grow like bright candles in wet/swampy areas.asters1a

Above we have the arrow-leaved aster, one of many varieties of wild asters in this area.upright bindweed2

Above, the upright bindweed, strange name for a beautiful wildflower.  It’s about 3 inches (7.5cm) across and the flowers last only a day.showy ladyslipper2

Lastly, the showy lady’s slipper, our largest wild orchid and basically gone now from our area due to people picking them.  Too bad really, they are so beautiful.  Please don’t pick wildflowers.  Take a picture and leave them for others to enjoy.

I hope you have enjoyed these today.  Since I missed yesterday’s pictures, and it’s raining once again, I thought it would be nice to share some more color today.  Enjoy your day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thanks Hilary! You have snow, here it’s rain, rain, rain! Right through until Monday. But I’ll take the rain over snow! I can’t shovel snow right now anyway. I hope your day goes well Hilary!😃😺🌞🍁🍂


  1. Beautiful flowers! We could definitely use the rain because we’ve been in a drought for quite sometime now. Last year it rained so much everything kept flooding and this year we’ve hardly had any rain! But we don’t want the rain until we’re done with all of our outside work. 🙂 Guess we’ve been lucky so far!
