Monday Morning Flowers!

Darling Ones!

Happy Mondays to all of you!

This week, your flowers are a little different, little wild.

Can you handle it?

I thought you could because
Betty's readers are a little different, a little wild.

Yeah, you crazy things! I adore you!



Purple Bells!


Orange and Yellow Delights!


Bonus Wildlife!


Don't think!
Thinking is the enemy of creativity.
It's self-conscious,
and anything self-conscious is lousy.
You can't try to do things;
you simply must do them.
--Ray Bradbury

Here's to a great week!

I wish I could follow your sage advise and stop thinking....turning off the brain with an on off switch would be so nice sometimes. Oh well..not possible for me. Love the beautiful flowers as always. Happy Monday!!!!

Vibrant purple is a great Monday picker upper.

I am taking that line into my heart.
