Blog Your Blessings Sunday

Welcome to Blog Your Blessings Sunday! Want to start your day with a smile? Click the button below or visit one of the blogs listed in my sidebar!

I spotted these flowers in a vacant lot while driving by one day. On closer inspection, it was obvious that someone had scattered seeds - cosmos, zinnias, bachelor buttons and snow crop were covering this rocky lot. Made me think that we never know when a decision we make, a small something we do will make someone smile, make another's day brighter. Seeing these flowers in such an unexpected place also reminded me to look closely, slow down and pay attention.

Thank you so much for visiting! ♥, allie

Thank you so much, storyteller, Melanie, Marlene, Pam and Cathy!

It was such a surprise. I had noticed a few of the flowers in driving by, but didn't realize how many there were until I got out of the car, then I looked around and saw that they were everywhere! It was really delightful!

How beautiful! All of your photography is!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm really glad you did. Now I have to know, are you a Bama fan or Auburn? :0)

Have a wonderful week!

Hi Teresa - Thank you again! I am glad that you are enjoying my pictures!

As to the Bama or Auburn thing....I went to Alabama, but at this point in my life - I really like both teams. I don't go to games any more - really didn't after graduating form college. I do love to watch football, but I don't do it very often. Maybe as our children get older we'll get more involved. :)
