Over the past couple of weeks, I've done a lot of running around. Research trips. To White Cloud, Alma, Matfield Green, Cottonwood Falls, Strong City, and Council Grove--all in Kansas. Everywhere I went, I tended to notice something: purple flowers.
I suppose because purple is my favorite color, it isn't surprising that I would spot purple. But such an abundance and variety of purple flowers exist! I wanted to share a few with you...
Doesn't an old chain link gate make a great climbing post for clematis?
I call these straw flowers; my friend from Georgia called them corn flowers. It doesn't matter what they are--what matter is they are PURPLE.
And these miniature "snapdragons" actually come from one of the many clumps growing in the field right behind my house. I pulled a few of them and stuck them in a pot, hoping they'll go to seed so I can purposely grow them next to my fence next year.
I'm so glad God decided to make our world beautiful. You know, He didn't have to. He could have just given us what we needed to sustain life, but instead He gave us things on which to feast our senses. Such a Giver of gifts beyond deserving...
God bless you muchly as you journey with Him! ~Kim
