I spent a pleasant hour looking along the roads around our neighborhood for wild flowers. So many different ones are blooming now, and I hope viewers will enjoy seeing at least some of what is growing in our part of North Carolina in late May. I don’t even begin to know all the names of the flowers, except for the blue cornflowers (Centaurea cyanus), a pink wild rose, and the honeysuckle. I can simply enjoy their beauty now and invite you back to the flowers in my own garden next week.
The vase is Mashiko pottery, acquired in Japan in 1974.

This is a beautiful arrangement John. I tried planting blue cornflowers but they didn’t make it. Honeysuckle is in full bloom all along the roadsides now–what a wonderful fragrance it has.
Thanks. I am realizing I now have to be more careful driving…I want to keep looking on the side of the road for more wildflowers. Perhaps I can do another collection in a few months when different flowers will be in bloom. I, too, tried to plant seeds from cornflowers but had no success. Perhaps they are like zebras…just cannot be domesticated.
