Years ago my brother and I convinced his friend that we grew up on a canola farm in Norway. We would regularly send each other texts saying things like, “I miss waking up to the smell of freshly pressed canola” or “Summers aren’t the same without a field of yellow canola flowers outside the window”. I don’t know what sparked the idea, this made up story of our childhood on a farm, but it’s made canola a special sight. Every time I drive passed a field, I have to stop and soak it all in, as if it brings back memories. Memories I never had. Canola was something I had never even seen in real life until we were in Canada last summer. I can’t explain the excitement I felt when we drove over a hill to see miles and miles of brightly bloomed canola. It was as if all those jokes could have been true, as if I was finally home. I don’t know why I love canola so much, I just do🌼 - - - - - #canolafield #canolafields #canolafarm #canola #canolaflower #canolaoil #wildflowerseason #arizonaflowers #superbloom #wildflowersarizona #azwildflowers #airstreamclassics #roadtrippers #azroadtrip #crosscountryroadtrip #summerroadtrip #airsteam #airstreamliving #tinyhomeonwheels #vanliving #vanlifecamper #traveltrailer #exploreaz #azoutdoors

This first picture is of the roses we have growing in the educational garden where I work. The second picture is of some wild roses I met on a hike last week. The petals of both can be dried and added to teas for their uplifting, moistening and astringent properties. The hips of the later are extremely high in Vitamin C and pectin can be dried and added to teas, prepared as a syrup or jam. You aren’t very likely to get hips from a cultivar like the one we grow in the garden, but they are lovely to look at. I think that we sometimes forget that beauty is medicine for the soul. 🌹 . . . . . #flowerpowers #realityhigh #growtogether #aunaturale #dropintuneout #growyourown #growyourneighbors #educationalgarden #gardenerslife #teachers #herbalists #herbalista #herbalismforlife #gardenroses #wildroses #azwildflowers #arosebyanyothername #hipsdontlie #petalstothemetal #iwishyoucouldsmellthis #getyourhandsinthedirt

Such a beautiful orange color on this wildflower. This was along the trail in Sedona in the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness. God really out did himself when he made Sedona and with Mother Natures paintbrush...... Sedona is striking. No place else like it. #see_arizona #oh_arizona #visit_arizona #seesedona #coconinonationalforest #redrocksecretmountainwilderness #sauntererslife #saunter #hike #hiker #azhiker #azhikerinutah #state48 #igarizona #igphx #wildflowers #azwildflowers #explore #explorearizona #explorenature #nature #naturerlover #southwest #desert #myhappyplace #myantidepressant #mysanctuary #makingmemories #chasingmypassion

I just love this tiny, single purple flower. This flower was everywhere on my hike the other day. I don’t know about you but flowers make me happy, not the ones in vases, although very pretty, I mean the wild ones. The ones that grow unruly and untamed. The ones that wait for their time to shine after a rain. The ones that fight hard for their place in the sun, these are the flowers I like best. Don’t bring me flowers.....take me on an adventure to see them. #wildflowers #azwildflowers #sedona #coconinonationalforest #redrocksecretmountainwilderness #sauntererslife #saunter #hike #hiker #azhiker #hikeaz #arizonahiking #igphx #see_arizona #visit_arizona #oh_arizona #ig_arizona #state48 #desert #southwest #wanderlust #happywanderer #myantidepressant #myhappyplace #mysanctuary #mytrail #findyourtrail #makingmemories #chasingmypassion #

It’s past wildflower season here in the desert, but I shot this a couple months back and came across it again doing some edits this morning. I like it because it reminds me life is all a matter of perspective. The flower can be just as large and strong as the saguaro, you just have to get down on its level and meet it where it’s at. 🌵 . . . #wildflowers #superbloom #saguaro #picachopeak #exploreaz #girlswhohike

Desert Blooms 🌵🌺 📷 @pachucos_art ・・・ Good morning! 🏜🌵💮💮💮💮"Saguaro flowers are usually found near the tops of the stems and arms of the cactus. They are white in color about 3 inches (8cm) in diameter. They emit a strong smell, sort of like overripe melons. During the night the flowers are pollinated by the lesser long-nosed bat and the Mexican long-tongued bat. During the daytime the flowers are pollinated by bees and birds such as the white-winged dove" #azwildflowers #weroamarizona #deserttortoise #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona   #fox10phoenix #Beon12   #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys” —Song of Solomon 2:1 As a woman, I often struggle to see myself as anything more than a patch of brambles. It is a curse that afflicts most of us; however much we may desire to see ourselves as beautiful, delicate, strong, confident, blossoming women, a look in the mirror or a peek at social media can make us wither inside and out. The truth is, however, that what we know trumps what we feel. I know that the truth of the above verse is that my God sees me as a flower more spectacular, beautiful, and deserving of love than I can even imagine for myself. Knowing this, even when I feel like more like the rose in Beauty in the Beast, losing one more petal every day, or the wilting lilies that go on sale the week after Easter, I allow my King to whisper the reminder of these truths to my soul. I pray the same will be true for you. . . . . #godislove #roseofsharon #inspiration #wildflowers #azwildflowers #dailyinspiration #jesussaves #instagood #photooftheday #igers #moment #capture #throughthelens #olympus #olympusomd #bokeh #colorphotography #macro

Springtime in Arizona is the best time of year. Even though the hills have died now and the dominant color profile of the landscape is brown, the memory of Spring still inspires me and fills me with joy. It is so comforting to know that life as well as nature is cyclical. Though the seasons in Arizona may be more muted and subtle than in other places, I know that though we are now moving into the fiery waves of summer, spring will indeed come again. . . . . #arizona #wildflowers #azwildflowers #desert #instagood #justgoshoot #picoftheday #olympus #olympusomd #aperture #nakedplanet #colorphoto #macro

Went out to grab sunset last night since the clouds look pretty rad, ended up kinda bummed about my impromptu location until a little splash of yellow caught my eye and found a huge prairie sunflower bush! Despite not having any bug spray I waited out for this shot, and wasn’t let down at all! . . . #arizona #az365 #arizonaisgorgeous #arizona_hiking #azwildflowers #agameoftones #azlife #abc15 #bns_flowers #beon12 #cbs5az #divine_deserts #earth_shotz #explorearizona #flowerstagram #flower_brilliance #greettheoutdoors #hikeaz #ig_arizona #ig_flowers #ig_southwest #keepnaturewild #loves_flowers #natgeoyourshot #nikonhunt #optoutside #rei #usa_naturehippys #visitarizona #westbysouthwest

Some Spring wildflowers for a Tuesday morning, from the beautiful hiking trails of the Hassayampa River Preserve! We are well into triple digits here, and Summer feels like it is already in full swing. I am enjoying early morning errand runs, board games during the day, and playing in the pool in the evenings. I hope you all are enjoying the weather where you are, and are staying cool with some fun activities. . . . . #azwildflowers #azwildlife #hassayampariverpreserve #wickenburg #letsjustgonow #springflowers #placestohike #lifeisgoodarizona #arizonalife #arizonaadventures #adventurelife #exploreaz #hikearizona #instragramaz #la_dame_grise #gooddaysunshine #azgrammers #igsouthwest #arizonahikersguide #azlife #visitarizona #arizonahiking #see_arizona #gotakeahike #optoutside #wildflowers
