Faces Of Straw Flowers In My World

Now that winter is creeping in, I am even more vigilance in keeping an eye out for wonderful sky colors to show up. You know, living with all that grey for days drains the energy out of me. Outside and inside always have such a doom feel to them.

Na, I am whining, just expressing how I feel about winter, and won't stop looking for other remarkable or amazing things to see during the cold months.

This year I had three different colors straw flowers: white, pink, and yellow. They were so fabulous to have in my flower pot, even though their petals were as rough as paper; they closed at night and opened during the day. The flowers lasted for a long time, which put them on top of my list to grow again next summer.

If you have Dollar Stores or their chain, keep your eyes in the flower department. They carried flower seeds and usually sold for a quarter during off season. I found these straw flower seeds there.

Niebo piękne, ale kwiatki dodają uroku zdjęciu. Pozdrawiam.
Sky is beautiful, but the flowers add charm to the image. Yours.

I think those flowers are what we call everlasting flowers here (but I might be wrong). I share your sentiments entirely about the dark,gloomy days of winter. Now I am retired I refuse to wake up unless it is daylight. How decadent is that!
