bud burst open white
bloom from mud and deep green depths
brightly sunward turns

Currently blooming in my southern New York State Garden, the Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum) is a bulb that can be found in many parts of the world. Considered a weed by some, it’s got to be tenacious to survive the jumble in my wildly overgrown perennial garden!
In response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Single Flower or Bud, and Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge: Bulb. Thank you Cee and Jennifer for the challenges!
These tiny, sweet, wild daisies have made an appearance in my backyard for two years in a row now. I hope they return next summer. Bright orange marigolds always bring a smile to my face so I make sure to plant some every year. Chicory, a common roadside wildflower in the Hudson Valley of NY is always a welcome summer visitor. Wherever it pops up, I let it grow!
This post includes my belated responses to three of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenges: White Flowers, Yellow or Orange Flowers, and Blue or Purple flowers.
