SUMMER IN WINTER
I finished putting up Christmas lights outside today. It was raining and I got wet,cold and a little grumpy! As I was untangling the strings of lights I dreamed of spring and summer hot days and flower gardens. So just to make myself feel better I decided to post some flowery summertime pictures.
The seal of King Solomon found on old coins etc., is in this shape, thus the name of this interesting flower, Solomon's Seal. This picture was taken from under the blossom. Interestingly it is also the shape of the Star of David. Now I wonder if seals were passed down through the generations.
I loved this pond. Iris, Foxglove, pansies and a lot more growing all around. I named some of my goldfish which grew to about 7 inches long and kept having babies. Sad when the coons & Herons got in and ate most of them. I also had a gorgeous pink water lily, a waterfall and a fountain. You can see all this much better if you enlarge it.
