Flowers of the Field

"See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these."

I'm blessed with both a Mom and a MIL who love plants. They grow everything they can get the seeds / branch / sapling of.

They have always tried to impart this knowledge to me but ended up watching in confounded horror as every plant I touched or tried to grow just withered away!

The harsh truth was clear -  I did not inherit the green-thumb-gene from mom and it seemed unattainable inspite of their patient guidance. Now my only hope is that my son has inherited this prized gene from his grand-mothers. 

Ok... so I'm a dunce at gardening. But there is one thing I love doing in their gardens - experimenting on my photography skills.

These single-petaled flowers grow at the very base of the plant. And I'm so glad that I did not let my fear of creepy crawlies in the wet mud stop me from getting down on my knees to click these.

Any guesses what plant this is? I was truly amazed to find out. This is the first time I've ever seen this plant though the seeds are a commonly used ingredient in my kitchen.

Here are some more gorgeous beauties from MIL's garden.
