wildflowers on my hike.

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

This hike was in the beautiful Oak trees.

So beautiful. But I am enjoying them more each time because of all the beautiful wildflowers that I am seeing.
These are my favorite, have always loved blue flowers.

Not sure how the butterfly bush got here!!

Most of this trail was very dry.

A few spots were green, first time I ran into poison ivy, or oak. Glad we did not have Riley.


Than we went up to the mountains, but did not get to have a real hike because of the smoke.
Got more pictures of the wildflowers anyway.

Big Bear lake. Water level very low.

Many more flowers but my battery died.

I really enjoy those flowers. I figure until I can buy a new home and start gardening again. Those trails can be my yard and the wildflowers will be my gardens.
Hope you enjoyed my blog everybody, so happy my spark buddies encouraged me to get out a hike again, ever so thankful that I can still do it.

Hope everyone is doing well, let's all blossom together and make the world beautiful.

Riley is ok. Did not bring him this time, because we were not sure of the trails, and he gets sick on long winding car rides. We will find a closer trail next time. Riley is having fun, making lots of friends at the dog park. Riley and his friend Charlie

    Wonderful pictures. Love them. emoticon

    It has always amazed me how wildflowers grow in little groups spread out across the land. No one plants them or tends to them, yet they thrive, Gods at work here emoticon

    Love your background picture....Thank You so much for taking me along with you on your walk..it was beautiful...i look at life this way...the whole world is our garden to enjoy...God has planted so many things for us to enjoy...just like that butterfly bush out in nowhere...isn't it amazing how these lovely flowers can with stand drought conditions and still bloom their pretty little heads off. there is nothing so beautiful than finding a blooming flower in very bad conditions....they always put a smile on my face...and your blog and pictures put a huge smile on my face...loved the pictures of the flowers, the oak tress and scenery...Riley is ok? have a wonderful day and i can't wait for your next walk. Hugs..

    Love all of your quotes. Wow, I can't believe you have that many wildflowers left up there. Lucky you. And so many different colors. The Oak Trees are beautiful. I have always liked Oak Trees. That is funny the Butterfly Bush just grew there. Maybe some birds dropped seeds from another plant. Makes me want to buy one. Glad you had fun. Too bad the fire is still burning. A couple of days ago it sad we had a chance of rain this week-end. Today it doesn't say that we are. I sure hope we do though.
