POP, BOOM, BANG....WOW!

Yes, yes I know it's JULY 1st and I should be posting a RED, WHITE and BLUE post in honor of our wonderful country's INDEPENDENCE Day... and though I have to admit Independence Day is probably my all time favorite holiday, today's post has virtually no red, white and blue, no FLAGS or sparklers...but it definitely has some "FIREWORKS"...with a beautiful POP of color to put me in the summertime mood...

My absolute FAVORITE flower in the whole world grows WILD here in Missouri along the roadside...



...to me these beautiful wild LILIES are God's summer fireworks show...little POPS of color bursting open everywhere along these old country roads...I just can't resist to stop and pick a few each year along with some wild black-eyed susan...this year I made a little bouquet for my desk at work....you know to kind of CHEER the place up a little...

...so today I am joining Fresh Cut Friday...with a little "FIREWORKS" show of my very own to celebrate Independence Day...ENJOY and have a wonderful holiday weekend!!!















HAVE A WONDERFUL SUMMER!
