Flower Friday

We are joining Rosy for Flower Friday~

Because we've had so much rain lately, we discovered Indian Pipes near Landlord Bob's mailbox.   We always thought they were in the mushroom family but reading an article on the intermuts, we are finding out that Indian Pipes are considered a wildflower.   We don't find them often so we feel pretty lucky!

We found this white blooming wildflower behind Landlord Bob's mailbox too.   We're not exactly sure what it is. Does anyone know?
 And in our own backyard - we discovered an apple on the apple tree☺   Thinking of you, angel Mitch♥
We found Purple Loosestrife at the end of a driveway~
 And across the street at the edge of the pond was Loosestrife too~
 And we found a single Balloon Flower~
 And not far from that - Toadflax!
 We love Phlox!  It smells so pretty☺
 Guess what I'm standing in front of?
A field of sunflowers!  We can't wait for them to bloom!
Happy Friday!

Love ya lots♥

When Mom lived in southern Germany, there were always a lot of fields of sunflowers and lots of them were pick your own fields. So pretty. We've never seen or heard of those indian pipes. Pretty cool.

WOW! You have outdone yourselves. Today you have more flowers that I have never seen than I have ever seen in one place. Is that a run on sentence? Loved it

Those Indian Pipe flowers are very interesting. We've never heard (or seen) of them before. You found lots of pretty flowers to share with us. That sunflower field will be beautiful when they are all in bloom.

I have never seen Indian Pipes before. I need to find out if we have them here, but I'm guessing not because it's so dry here. I love Angel Mitch's apple... And, I hope that you show us when the field of sunflowers blooms!

The white flowers in the second picture look a bit like some we have in our yard called gooseneck. We'll have to take a closer look. Lots of nice flowers blooming this time of year!
