Show Us Your Summer Blooms and Crops - An Active Rain Challenge 
 
I love to plant flowers in my Flower Mound garden. Long before I moved to Flower Mound, TX, I had a passion for flowers, butterflies, bees, and dragonflies. My earliest recollections in life began helping my grandmother plant flowers in Chicago. Here in Flower Mound, I can plant flowers and appreciate blooms 365 days out of year by knowing what to plant and when. 
 
Lantanas are the easiest plant to grow in Flower Mound because it's a native plant. The tiny cluster of flowers comes in an array … (30 comments)

flowers: And the Day Came... - 07/15/17 10:57 PM
by Patricia Feager, 7/16/2017
 
 
 
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
--- ELIZABETH APPEL
 
 
 
Have you ever noticed that every flower embodies aspects of you,
your timidness; then hopes to blossom into something bigger
and brighter, more beautiful and shy, why?
 
The spirit of springtime comes alive when flowers bloom,
then tested by rain, wind, and fire. In the midst of
every other day flowers change from radiant to loneliness
just watch the petals hide their face, why?
 
Softness turns brittle over time, it's one of those changes
that can not  be denied, but why can't things stay … (89 comments)

flowers: April Showers Brought May Flowers - 05/20/17 06:53 AM
Musings by Patricia Feager
 
 
After a wet and windy spring, this is the result of my annual manual labor in my Flower Mound garden. I enjoy planting and adding something new every year. The flowers in the top left was a complete surprise! When I planted it into the earth, there were no buds or flowers! To me, it looks uniquely exotic and I am proud of how it turned out! The photo on the top right was taken a few days ago when the winds were blowing fast. I felt as if the petals waved back at me, letting me know … (53 comments)

flowers: Are You Anticipating Spring? - 02/26/17 07:31 AM
Musings  by ©Patricia Feager, 2/26/2017
 
 
The anticipation of spring is always a fascination with me. As a homegrown Midwestern girl, I was fascinated by the weather and the storms that lit up the sky at night. I could be perched on my front porch protected by a red and white canopy chasing storms across the sky with my eyes shifting from left to right, up and down. Raindrops falling on the metal canopy sounded like a symphony until a thunderclap caused me to practically jump out of my skin! 
 
Childs play is hard work. You're always thinking, imagining, creating thoughts inside your head and … (28 comments)

As long as we are persistent in our pursuit of our deepest destiny,
We will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time
When we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.
---Denis Waitley
 
 
 
How does the meadow flower bloom unfold?
Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root,
And in that freedom bold --- William Wordsworth
 
 
The Dallas Arboretum is in full bloom and in living color. Temperatures reached 79 degrees on Saturday, February 18, 2017. I got my dose of Vitamin C. Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the scent of flowers. After the rain, it is … (29 comments)

flowers: 2016 - Half Over & What's Happening Now in North Dallas - 06/09/16 03:01 AM
 
 
©by Patricia Feager 6/9/2016
 
As El Nino calms down and the heavy rains stop, the heat turns up in North Dallas, Texas. White Clouds pushed away the rain and blue skies are here again! Lizards are actively sucking up bugs on my bricks and mortar but too quick for me to take photographs. Both are a welcome sight outside my window! 
 
 
Flowers in my Flower Mound garden are confused but still offering an array of color and many surprises. Though spring sprung up too quickly and with all that rain it was hard to notice; yet buds continued to bloom. Hydrangeas are doing great. There … (8 comments)

flowers: Texas Real Estate Wild & Wonderful! - 04/22/16 03:03 PM
 
Being in the right place at the right time pays off! While previewing properties around White Rock Lake in Dallas, I noticed beautiful wildflowers growing along the roadside. I had to stop, take out my camera and get a few shots!
 
 
The Texas Blue Bonnets and Indian Paint Brush are an inspiration! Sigmond Freud couldn't have said it any better when he said, "Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts."
 
Whenever other people's money is involved, life is full of conflicts. An agent never knows who, when or why a person takes money personally. When it comes to … (9 comments)

flowers: The Girls Are Back In Town!!! - 04/11/16 11:24 PM
 
What's happening in Flower Mound, TX now???
 
The Girls are back in town all dressed up in lilac. They are my late bloomers standing 4 feet tall this year! Rain is in the forecast, causing havoc to other parts of Texas but Flower Mound is feeling the love of gentle and just enough rains. Cloudy skies in North Dallas this morning but that didn't stop the girls from showing up in my backyard. They were the brightest thing I saw when I peaked outside my kitchen window!
 
 
The soft petals of lilac reflect sentiments of emotion, that feeling of hope! I don't mind … (13 comments)

Easter Sunday March 27, 2016
 
 
Easter is a celebration of our connection to what is here on earth and what lies ahead. Flowers have been a symbol of celebration for many occasion. Weddings, graduation, birth, birthdays, death, congratulations, and holidays. Flowers are forever present.
 
Today is Easter Sunday. Flowers are the hallmark of spring. It is a beautiful time of the year. Patiently we wait for spring to come; then celebrate life events that matter. Like the flowers that victoriously bloom, so do people. We are part of the human race striving for victory! As flowers gradually reveal their true beauty, people aim … (44 comments)

flowers: The Rebirth and Magic of Summer - 06/29/14 12:32 AM
 
 
The beginning of summer is magical and magnificent. The earth pulsates with vivid hues that are bold and bright beyond my comprehension. How could something as tiny as a seed produce such exquisiteness after the long and dormant season of winter? This annual phenomenon is a reawakening, a reason for celebration. I look forward to experiencing every flower, blade of grass, the trees, leaves, and stems that shoot out of the earth, between rocks, on hills, prairies, amongst the farm fields and inside and around the ponds.  
 

 
My eyes are on creation. I am just … (21 comments)

flowers: Flowers Are The Next Best Thing to Decorating - 05/17/14 07:35 AM
 

 
 
There's something about flowers that brings forth energy. They come in all different colors. Every color is just right and will never go out of style.
 
If you are putting your home on the market, and you can't afford a professional Stager think about sprucing up your place using simple flowers. Vases come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors too.
 
When it comes to architectural wonder, Mother Nature never disappoints us. People respond to the blossoms - there are countless miracles waiting to burst into something beautiful. A spark of beauty lifts up the … (25 comments)

IF BIGGER IS BETTER, THAN WHY IS OBESITY A PROBLEM? SHOULD FLOWERS COME IN SMALLER SIZES?
 

 
 
JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE SAYS BIGGER IS BETTER, WHY WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT IS TRUE? AS LOVERS RUSH TO THE FLORIST SHOPS AND FLORAL DEPARTMENTS ON VALENTINE’S DAY FOR THOSE LAST MINUTE ROSES AND GIFTS, SHOULD BIG RED ROSES AND BIG BOXES OF CHOCOLATE BE THE CHOSEN ONES?
 
 
WHAT ABOUT THE PURPLE FLOWERS OR THE BLUE, THE YELLOW, PINK, WHITE OR GREEN?  CARNATIONS ARE VERY PRETTY AND THEY LAST LONGER TOO. ORCHIDS ARE SPECIAL, JUST LIKE … (26 comments)

HOME REPRESENTS FREEDOM
 
Flower Mound, Texas is where I call home. People can choose whether or not to live in a community that does or does not have an HOA. As a property owner, I live in a neighborhood without an HOA. Therefore, I have the independence and the freedom to improve the exterior of my home without asking for permission. What I decide to do on the inside of my home is entirely up to me. I have the ability to paint, tile, decide on window treatments, flooring, appliances, and choose the type of lifestyle that best … (34 comments)

flowers: Happy Tuesday! - 04/16/12 07:08 PM
I’ve been awakened not by the morning sun or the sound of raindrops but by the need to find out what my ActiveRain friends have to say, show or tell. I search for an image of something unique to share with them, and for now, this flower rings a bell with me because of its shape and if I had bells to ring to wake people up this morning, this is what they’d look like!

The soft pastel color inside this unique plant reminds me that creativity is vital to our growth. This flower appears to have a flower … (49 comments)

flowers: Color Has A Purpose - 04/13/11 06:24 AM
April 14, 2011
Color has a purpose in the natural world and what better place to start than in a garden? Its purpose is to attract, repel, conceal and brighten up a landscape. Shades of light; shades of dark, all make a garden beautiful. All colors have a purpose.

Choose color with a purpose. Colors with intensity are often perceived as royalty in years past and they are now available to all. In the natural world, color doesn't matter - it's the value it brings to those who need it that really matters.

When light falls on the petals … (28 comments)

flowers: First Thoughts of the Day - 03/31/11 11:30 PM
April 1, 2011
It's 4 o'clock in the morning and I can finally hear myself think. All day long, I think of other people and their needs, wishes, desires; now it's my turn. The dishwasher has finally quit running and I just put away the dishes. The washing machine just started up and outside my window I hear the sound of the sprinkler system watering my garden. My teabag is seeping, I can almost taste my tea and honey. The sounds I hear all have something to do with water. I pause to rub my watery eyes.
"All is born of … (39 comments)

Wisteria
In Asia, wisteria is an emblem of gentleness and obedience. In Victorian days, it meant, "I cling to thee."
The ornate and aromatic Wisteria looks like it is tumbling out of the sky from Heaven.
Wisteria bears an abundance of hues that includes lavendar, pale purple, mauve, light blue, pinkish blue and white.
Here you see how the lavish luster of lavendar hues topples over the garden wall as if it is bursting with joy because Spring is here! It can finally BREATHE and I inhale it's fragrant aroma!
WELCOME HOME WISTERIA!!!
