It's amazing to me that these brightly colored flowers were formerly just tiny
seeds I found in an old envelope lying in a drawer.
I must have (absentmindedly) put them in the drawer, a few years ago--
deciding I'd save them for "another day".
I'm not sure what prompted me to scatter the seeds around the mailbox, earlier this summer.
But I'm sure glad I did! All this loveliness--from tiny seeds. So amazing.
The bees have been thinking the same thing :)
Even as the flowers get older and petals begin to fade & fall, they are still beautiful.
Don't you think so too?!
