How Wildflowers Encourage Us to Pay it Forward

“Pick me, pick me!”

You hop into the shower after your morning walk with thoughts of those sunny little wildflowers lingering in your head.  They graced the view in several places along your path and seemed to beckon you to take them in.

As you get dressed for the day, you think of your old blue pitcher and how it would look so cheerful holding those sunny yellow Texas wildflower faces.

Maybe you should go back.

Dig Deeper to Find the Hidden Treasure

No additional motivation needed, you decide that your mission for the morning is to introduce the pretty yellow flowers to your old pitcher and see what transpires.

What a welcome surprise!

The fuzzy blue-purple clumps of flowers, later identified with the help of a Wildflowers of Texas reference as Mistflower,  seemed to beg to join the party as well.   You snip a little greenery for filler and head back home.

Yellow and purple are complementary colors, so the marriage of these two wildflowers seems perfect in your blue sunflower pitcher.  The arrangement comes together easily and you can’t help but smile at those little flower faces now sitting on your tabletop.

Share Your Fortunes with Your Friends

Now, this prompts another idea.  Those flowers are too cute not to share!
