A-Z Challenge: "W" is for Wallflower

Join Us in the 2013 A-Z Challenge!

During the month of April, I am participating in the "Blogging From A-Z April 2012 Challenge", where we post everyday during the month of April (except for Sundays).  Daily posts begin with the next letter of the alphabet.  This is my third year of participating in the challenge. "CLICK HERE" to find out more.

This year, I have chosen to do a study on poet and artist, Cicely Mary Barker.  I am featuring her book "A Flower Fairy Alphabet"Not only will you learn about pretty flowers, but I will also be giving you a few fun facts about Ms. Barker each day.

"Religious-themed books include The Children's Book of Hymns (1929) and He Leadeth Me (1933), the latter written in collaboration with her sister. Major religious works include the triptychs in oil, The Feeding of the Five Thousand (1929), for the chapel in Llandaff House, a home for destitute women at Penarth, Wales, and The Parable of the Great Supper (1934) for St. George's Chapel, Waddon.[4] The Feeding has since disappeared, and only a black and white photograph dated 1929 reproduces the work.[14]"  Source: Wikiipedia's Article on Cicely Mary Barker

The little poem expresses my thoughts whenever I see random flowers growing along the highway.

What a pretty flower.

I don't think I've ever seen one of those. Very pretty.

Our self seeded wallflowers do not look as grand as these. My father used to fill two flower beds each year with either wallflowers of asters. My job as a boy was to pull them up at the end of each year.
