|Daffodils planted many years ago and appear everything|
spring around the back of the old house
|I do not know the name of this plant. The leaves are feathery|
and will close up when you touch them. There are small briars
on the stems of this wild plant.
|This is a sweet shrub taken from the woods and planted|
behind the old house. The blossoms are very pleasant to smell.
|The field behind the old house is filled with yellow|
color from the wild flowers.
|A close shot of the deep yellow of this wild plant.|
|Standing in the field surrounded by the yellow wild flowers|
separated by space created a sensation of
distance, placement, and movement
in a fashion much like a 3D movie.
|In one section of the back field around the outhouse|
blue wild flowers are a plenty.
|Feathery wild grasses are also prevalent in the field |
behind the old house.
|This is one hardy Petunia. It was blooming until late|
fall last year, and returned in bloom in early spring. The
plant is next to the foundation supporting the front
porch of the old house.
|New growth is evident on this small pine tree near the|
front yard of the Kilgore Old Place. You
can see the old barn in the background.
|Among the daffodils was this beautiful wild plant with|
its flowering stems.
There is a special beauty in the natural and unplanned appearance of nature's happenings, especially when that appearance signifies "new life." This was most evident as I stood among all that the Kilgore Old Place field displayed on a spring day 2013. The old place is sacred to us cousins. But even more sacred in the appearance of God's creation. Let's enjoy it and enjoy He who made it.
