 a bloom
 at radnor lake
 in brentwood , tn!!

a magical woodland
carpet
of the
 purple kind.

even tom was there!
struttin his stuff, as only a boy can do.



you just never know
 what gorgeousness

unless you take the time to look.


i had know idea,
that the larkspur was blooming right now,

I'd love to transport myself there for a morning walk. It's so beautiful and next to a lake, too!

Erin, I'm in Prescott & your brother & father told me about your blog. Wonderful! purple is my favorite flower. When I get home, I'll send you some photos of our Wisteria in bloom, except I don't find any contact info on your page. Happy Spring! Susan F.

Absolutely gorgeous! And such a bonus that it just grows wild, on its own. So fun to see that turkey right there in the middle of it all. He sure is a handsome fellow. best wishes to you, Tammy

Thank goodness you took your camera that is amazing.

Carole said...

What a treat to see so many in one place. I've never seen anything like that. I thought those wild flowers at our old dump was something but this is magical.

Finally saw the last episode of the Bronson project...Love him!

I wish these were growing wild here in East Tennessee, but I have never seen them. Wouldn't they be beautiful growing alongside the oxeye daisies! I have a terrible time growing Larkspur from seed, I will keep my eyes open for some wild ones to transplant,

Ann said...

dear erin,
you have a wonderful eye for color and beauty. i love the steps leading up through the flowered wood, and the enchanting may-apples, and...oh, all of them! how lovely.
blessings,
