Do you know?


Earlier this Spring we discovered a weed looking plant growing in the middle of our flower bed at the edge of the walkway.  It was there last year too.  Jim and I neither one remember planting it, but we thought “what the heck”, it kind of balanced things out.  So we left it. 

So this weedy bush just kind of sat there last year and… I guess just balanced things out.  And there it was again this spring.   So, we left it to balance things out again. 

Sometime if you give something (or someone) time to sort things out and pull it all together, it (they) will pleasantly surprise you.

   Here is my “weed bush”.  See the beautiful yellow flowers?

The intent of this post really was to see if anyone can identify my beautiful mystery bush.  (I swear neither of us remember planting it!)

But then my mind did strange things as so often happens, and I realized this bush was like people.  Sometimes time is all that is needed to work things out and the beauty to shine through.

(I love the digital macro setting of my little camera)


So, how about it everyone.  Take a moment to look past the mundane around us and discover the beauty just waiting to pop!

Super hugs and as always – later!

Very pretty bush. I hope you (and they) can figure out what it is.

They are very pretty.

I would guess they were some variety of St. John's Wort, perhaps the Great St. John's Wort?

If so, you could even eat them.

Wow Iggy, you may be right. I'm going to research that. Originally all of the flowers planted in that garden was herbs, so St. John's Wort would make a lot of sense.

*heading off to my herb book*

iggy's right.

They're pretty as well as functional!

Good thing you left them then. :)

I always loved yellow flowers. I loved purple ones too, because purple is my favourite colour, but there's something about yellow flowers... Perhaps the fact that yellow is associated with sunnshine? *Shrugs*
