Beneath upon the hem of it, thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet,
round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them round about: Exodus 28: 33

Purple Creeping Bellwort
Are said to be invasive
To spread wildly o'er earth.
I see them mildly persuasive....
For threads won't unravel
Sown together as they travel,
If it is made with bells that ring,
Standing in a chorus vine to sing
Joining flowers by hems thereof,
Intoning what about them to love!
Poetry by me AJP

I photographed these pretty wildflowers on the edge of our woods behind our house ...
We always thought they were called Loosestrife until I did a research on-line yesterday and found out differently. It taught me how little I know about wildflowers.

It is a learning experience to identify these wildflowers as I go along and I admit it is not always easy as there are some plants that resemble each other except for a slight difference in their leaves or shapes of their petals which is why it pays to shoot a close up to study all aspects of the flower itself....I love the positive Bible verse on color which inspired my poetry.

Best to view in light box! Thank you!
