Flower Friday - Flowers from the Road


TGIF and Happy Flower Friday!!



 
Today, Arty and I are going to show you some flowers we saw from all over the USA on our recent BAR Road Trip!


It didn't take long for Mama to start taking flower pictures, this was taken about two hours from our house by the Trinity River!



We saw this pretty buttie-piller at the rest stop just outside Weaverville, California.


Here I am with a little yellow flower close to the border of California and Nevada!



Mama took this "wayyyyyy tooo early in the morning" sunrise picture of a rose when we were in Reno, Nevada!!



Here I am with another rose in Reno!



Did you know Kansas is the Sunflower State?? Well it was a bit early for real sunflowers, but we saw this sunflower statue at a very pretty Kansas rest area!



Here are some flowers from Indiana, we took these during our 
evening walks after the BAR at the Red Roof Inn!




We found these itty, bitty daisies right at the entrance 
to the shelter where the BAR was going on!!

Look for Arty and my BAR highlights coming up starting tomorrow!


When we were in Indiana, we took a few "scenic" routes and saw lots of pretty daylilies!!



On the way home, when traveling through Kansas again, we saw and smelled these flowers. BOY Mama really liked the way they smelled. They look like some sort of clover and we were wondering if maybe Cammie and Maggie or Lightning and Ciara might know what kind of flowers they are??



OMD...Look at these sunflowers in Goodland, Kansas!!!
This is one of the World's Largest Van Gough Painting and Easel. 
Mama wants to say she was VERY impressed with Kansas, there is soooo much more than just cornfields to see!!



The prettiest flower I saw during the whole trip though, was the most beautimous flower Mr. Bailey gave me when we visited him!!


Thanks so much for joining us for Flower Friday this week, feel free to hop aboard and show us what flowers you saw this week!!

The unknown clover-like flower is Crown Vetch and our mom didn't know that it smelled pretty. She'll be shoving her nose into the blooms this morning on our walkie. That's for sure! Thank you for telling us, Dory!
The huge painting and easel is awesome☺

Molly and Mackie are right - that is Crown Vetch. It can be very invasive, but also makes a good ground cover. Some people plant it on hillsides to help prevent soil erosion. Others see it as an invasive weed. You know what they say - one man's weed is another man's wildflower!
We do LOVE the Sunflower here in Kansas! That statue is very pretty!
Cammie!
