Happy Flowers on a Happy Day

Flower Diaries - Easter Sunday, and a Day of Remembrance

Today was a very special day, mixed with many emotions. You see a year ago my father passed away, and I miss him terribly. We buried him right before Easter.

Despite all that goes with that, and my sister and I doing some reminiscing, I forced myself to have a great day, and we did. My family went to my Mom and stepdad's house, and they are our only family here. They live in Missouri, and somewhat out in the country.

I couldn't help but notice the purple wildflowers blooming in the woods, upon entering the house and looking outside. Later on, when we took a walk, I was so happy I had my camera in the car which I went and retrieved. What you see here is what I captured from what was in bloom, this Easter. A year after my father passed away. He is one of the people that taught me to love flowers and nature so much. This is for him, as it made it all a joy to look back over my life and reflect a little.

Consider it just a gallery of flowers to enjoy perhaps, and maybe see a new flower or two. Included are naturally growing wildflowers, perennials, and some colorful annuals as well. Make sure to click on the little photo squares, or thumbnails to see the pictures bigger. I put the names of the flowers I know, right under my photos of the flowers. They include, but are not limited to purple ageratum, white, purple, and magenta petunias, yellow marigolds, coral columbines, purple phlox, purple vincas and more.

I hope you enjoy, and I hope you had a great Easter Sunday, or a great weekend if you don't celebrate Easter.

I miss you Dad, and will look forward to seeing you again one day.

Flower Poll

Of the following options in flowers, which do you enjoy the most?

  • Annuals, ones you buy new every year, but they are so bright and festive!
  • Wildflowers, as you can't improve on nature!
  • Perennials, because I get to pick my favorites, but they keep coming back every year.
  • Too hard to decide, I love more than one above, or all of the above!

Beautiful flowers Oceansnsunsets, it's daffodil time over here in the UK, which bring a bit of sunshine to a grey, rainy day like today.

Hello CmHypnno, I am glad you liked the flowers. Flowers are so beautiful, and if we take the time to really look at them up close, they are even more beautiful. Glad they brightened up your rainy day in the UK. When it is grey here, I feel the same way when I see bright flowers.

I hope you have a great week ahead, Paula

What a beautiful tribute to your dad. Thanks for sharing the stunning photos with us, but mostly, I thank you for sharing what was in your heart.

Sorry about the loss of your dad, but I was glad that you were able to find some solace and peace among the beautiful flowers and trees.

Voted up across the board except for funny.

Hello Pamela, I appreciate your comment, thank you! I agree, Easter seems a great time to enjoy flowers. It gives the feel of spring, renewal, and a resurrection even from a colder winter, as if the earth is all coming back to life again all around us.
