This past week,  I took those photographs of the forsythia bush flowers in my yard. Those flowers are probably a little bit past their peak, but I loved the sea of yellow in the close up photographs of them. Their color makes me think of the sun and sunshine.

This past week,  I took those photographs of some short flowers that grow wild in the shaded parts of my yard. Those flowers close when it gets dark (night time) or if it gets overcast, but open when the sun is shining. They grow in the early Spring, but I'm not sure what they are.

I took those photographs of the yellow Trout Lily flowers that grow wild in the shaded parts of my yard this past week. I'm fortunate to have these growing naturally in the wild in my yard, because the bulbs are very expensive.

Pink Fern Bleeding Hearts Flowers - Photograph

I took that photograph in my flower garden this past week. The plants aren't fully grown yet, but some of the flowers on them are. Unlike Old Fashioned Bleeding Hearts, the Fern type has flowers from Spring until the first frost of the Fall season. The little black seeds that form inside the flowers can be sprinkled around on the ground, and will grow in the Spring, after going through a Winter season.

I bought the bulbs from Michigan Bulb Company a long time ago. Although they say these flowers bloom in Summer, mine, which are planted very close to the house basement foundation, grow in early Spring.

My own quote: There is so little time to enjoy life, and then it's over, like falling leaves.

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

And all these angels and demons
Keep shouting and screaming
So love me like a rock star, dancing on a cop car
No one in the world can help me now
Nothing in the world can stop me now
I don't feel the same
I'm falling
Tell my friends I'm sorry
