Walking In A Super Bloom

Thank you for your kind comments on my post about the loss of my friend Rosemary. I appreciate your kindness and I'm so grateful for your friendship.  


Faith and I went for a long walk the other day. This is one of my favorite junipers. It looks like it chose this place and got rid of the competition so it could just spread out. 


The flowers are still in bloom. These may be called blue mat if I described them correctly to Jeanne, who knows about such things.


The yellow flowers grow outside my house to the east. A friend  mentioned that the blue and yellow colors of the flowers are like the colors of the Ukranian flag. Blue and yellow are also the colors of the Swedish flag. 


When I studied European history as a teenager, I learned there was a strong connection between our two countries from the 9th to the 13th century. 


I may write about that connection when I come back from my break.

Faith found something of interest. She looks so tiny at a distance, so big when she stretches out on my bed, our bed.






The Swedish Flag



The cross flags of the Nordic countries represent Christianity and they all have a history of their own.


And now I'll continue on my blogger break.

  3. Once again my comment vanished. I was asking you to post about Swedish history, since we don't get to learn about it enough.

  4. Did not know those were the colors of the Swedish flag also. Natrure's personal welcome to you. Had to smile at Faith's different sizes and know what you mean. Callie is only 29 pounds on the ground but is heifer sized on the bed:)

  5. It's so nice that Mother Nature has graced your place with beautiful blue flower. It's like she's paying tribute to the Ukrainian people.
    Enjoy your break and stay well.
    Hugs,
    Julia
