This wild flowers are all over the road now!
This flower reminds me of an early experiences I had when I just arrived here in the States. I just came and lived with my sister in So. San Francisco. During those early years, I don't know what to expect nor know how would I adopt to my new environment. It was so totally different. I came here in the month of July, 1981. The flowers are still in bloom. The mall, which I was so excited to hang out was full of beautiful flowers on the planters. I can't believe that it was a real one that I would secretly touch it to make sure it was real, lol!
I remember this particular wild flower. My sister's front yard was full of this and since I was newbie and was trying to help my sister with her house, I cut a lot of this flowers and put it in a vase to decorate her house. My sister did not say anything, she just smile at me and said it is so pretty. I did not mind if this is weed, at least I could see some flowers to brighten her house. Few days gone by and I was planning to replace the withering flowers when my sister pull me aside. She said she really appreciate it but unfortunately it turns out my brother in law is allergic to weeds, lol!
So gone were my decorating experiments, =(.

    I enjoyed your story...It reminded me of myself picking bouquets of dandelions when I was child to carry over to our neighbor who made the best oatmeal cookies....Only one day she didn't have any cookies and I think she caught on that I was giving her dandelions in exchange for cookies and that was the end of the trade:) I often wondered in later years if she threw the dandelions out the back door after I left her house...She always pretended that she loved my dandelions:)

    The lighting is sublime! This feels more like a distant memory than an image. Perhaps a happy childhood moment
