Flowers and A Pothole

We've had a few flowers and a big pothole around here lately.

These are larkspur in our front yard.  Really pretty flowers - and so many.  I cropped the picture pretty good since I doubt if you'd really want to see all the thistles that are growing in with them too.  I guess I could wade in there and pull the thistles out but I'm not really keen on having slithery, creepy, crawly things find their way up my pants legs either.

We've also had a little bit of a rocky road lately - actually a big pothole - but we're slowly climbing out of it once again.  Hopefully all will be better soon.  One day at a time.......

I'll be by blogs as soon as I can so hang in there with me.

Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

Those look gorgeous! I love the purples! Sure looks so much warmer over there! We are still a bit cool for Spring, but hopefully warm up soon. Take care! :)

GORGEOUS!!!

Marilyn said...

Wow, is this ever pretty!
It is spring here too but all we have so far is little sprigs of green grass, tiny buds on trees and perennial shoots just peeking through the ground.
Hang in there... I think about you lots and wonder how you and Jim are managing and am glad to hear you are coping. It's never easy for anyone but like you said, one day at a time.

Tammy said...

The flowers are gorgeous Lynn, so colorful! I hope things get better.
Sending hugs, Tammy

Love the way you buttered us up with pretty posies before the big pot hole. Hope life fills it in and gets you going. You have been missed.

Brenda said...

Oh my look at all those beautiful flowers! I love this view Lynn! Just as I imagine it would look around your yard! Love the antique wagon wheel on the edge of the flowers, so country and so beautiful! I'm praying that you will be out of this pot hole completely very soon. Big hugs to you and Jim!! Brenda
PS: I think I confused these flowers with birds didn't I?!! lol I'm always good for a laugh Lynn!

MaryH said...

TFS such a lovely photo of these pretty flowers. Hope the pothole will soon be in the past, and that you're hanging in there. Big hugs to you both, and know that you're being thought of! Have a restful weekend if possible!

MiamiKel said...

What amazingly beautiful larkspur! I was just reading about the blue bonnets on (the other!) Lynn's blog and ya'll just have the most beautiful shades to your flowers. Hang in there, sweet friend - Grandma used to tell me that He will never tempt you with more than you can bear .... hang tight and blessings to you! ♥

Bonnie said...

I've been wondering if everything was OK. Hope better days are ahead! Love the larkspur. Isn't it nice to see them out your window! We have wisteria growing here that looks a little like this but upside down and growing on vines wrapped in the trees!

JD/ Jill said...

Your flowers are so pretty! Great pic! Thanks for sharing...
Hopefully there are many sunny days in the future!

NanaConnie said...

Larkspurs are some of my favorite flowers -- must be the purple. These are gorgeous! :-D I'm so glad to see you posting something. Have been worried about you and was about to send out an APB. Sorry about the pothole but will keep you in prayers that things get better. Hugs, my friend.

I'm sorry to hear you fell into a pot hole again (still?), Lynn, and I hope you guys can truly climb out and stay out this time!! At least it's wonderful that you can look out your window and see this incredible field of larkspur in your front yard!! Lots of hugs, Darnell

lauren bergold said...

Anne Temple said...

Your flowers are beautiful! One day at a time id definitely the best strategy in my opinion. No need to worry about what might not happen. Take care.

Davi said...

Lynn your larkspur are so beautiful!!
I'm so sorry you have had another pothole!! I'm praying that it gets better quickly! I know that those pot holes are rough, we have been falling in them regularly these last couple years. I just take it a day at a time,thankful for the good ones. Hang in there friend :)

Lesley said...

a stunning spray of Larkspurs - I think pot holes are everywhere. are yours massive? . . . . Lesley x

Love the flowers! Here in the poor country, we are surrounded by dirt roads with millions of potholes and then paved roads with giant potholes. A truck almost hit me the other day when it swerved at the last minute. Luckily, when I get to the next two counties, they have more money and it is easier. I think of it as an analogy to life - we have to know where those pesty things are and avoid them! LOL! Many hugz

So pretty are these larkspurs. They remind me of my childhood.
