I imagined that when I returned to the midwest this summer
my favorite wildflower garden would greet me
with hundreds of Indian Blanket flower blooms...
just like it seasonally did every summer
year after year...with out fail...
Apparently, when I wasn't "looking"
there had been some kind of an early summer "territorial battle"
over prime garden real estate in my flowerbed.
My Siberian irises and yarrow had multiplied this spring
along with bountiful heaps of weeds
shut out any ground space for my faithful
flowering Indian Blankets.
So...in honor of their gorgeous gold and deep red-orange blossoms...
I post these similarly colored "fantasy blooms" which were
drawn and painted from my imagination
and then preposted before my trip
to now celebrate "what might have been".
Ah, yes..."Location, Location, Location..."
Guess what they say is true...
even if it's simply a teensy bit of a space in one's garden!:)
