A Quote for Monday

"A flower's appeal is in its contradictions; so delicate in form yet so strong in fragrance, so small in size, yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect."  Adabella Ridici 

These are tiny little wildflowers that bloom all over the roadsides in great masses up here in June.  Their blooms are minuscule, usually no bigger than one quarter of an inch in diameter.  But, up close, oh!  Splendid Gilia really deserves its name.


  1. How lovely! I just came from Friko's blog where she was talking about English weeds/wildflowers. It's that time of year for many of us!

  2. Minute perfection.
    En masse they must be something to behold!

  3. These are beautiful little gems! I used to love the wild pink, purple & white flocks that grew alongside the creek in our field. I wonder if they still grow there all these years later. Wendy x

  4. Dear Victoria - what a lovely wildflower. We don't have anything that grows quite like this here in my part of the country. Wild geraniums would be the closest in appearance but they are tall and usually bloom in May. Me thinks you just might have to paint these beauties. Hugs!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
