So many plant manicured flower gardens...each flower planted in a row following a string stretched to insure perfect alignment.

Nature has a much better idea...let the birds sow the seeds and let the bees pollinate for another season. Adding just the right touch of color to the landscape...never clashing colors but just the right splash of oranges, yellows and greens to frame her paintings.

My kind of garden!

Patty...
My garden usually starts with the manicured look but as the weeds grow...it becomes more and more nature like!

Nature does know how to spread beauty around in just the right places! Love the photo and prose today!

I do prefer wildflowers in no particular pattern...just seems like this is the way we should view them!

Thanks Shabbygirl...
In Arizona...I have seen just as beautiful gardens planted by nature in the High Desert in Springtime.

AMEN to that, Dan!! The picture perfect gardens are pretty but my love for wildflowers and their personal settings will carry me away any day. I am a lover of nature in itself ☺

I REALLY like this photo!

You ought to see the multitudes of tiger lilies who have growled out other plants, in my own yard (front and back).

Heather...
I know what you mean...they must be one of the easiest flowers to grow..they spring up everywhere around here as well...have a great weekend.

Cynthia...
Thanks...I would imagine this looks like scenes around Oklahoma as well. Have a good weekend.

Dan, it's ironic that you've made something so perfect out of a scene that most people (as you've discussed with your manicured garden statement) would consider imperfect and out of control. This looks like a painting, which is a refreshing stylistic choice! This picture just lets my imagination run wild! (har har, unintentional joke there...sorry)
