A New Year WIld Flower ...

     A New Year Wild Flower that I found on a walk before work on January 2nd. Anyone know what it's called? I have no clue but it is sort of pretty and very delicate. BTW ... the bloom is much smaller than it looks here, it's maybe the size of a quarter. 

     2006 has not gotten off to a very productive start for me. I've had a few set backs including being sick for about 10 days, which really slowed me down. (Why does it always seem to take 10 days?)

     We are only 17 days into the year though, so there is still plenty of time to turn things around. After work today I'll be making my final decisions on which winter classes I'll be taking this year. And ... I'm sure if I pack my bag tonight, I should have no problem getting to the gym tomorrow morning, even if I have to go by myself.

     Hope your New Year is off to a better start than mine, if not ... it's not to late to get on track, right?

If you had not of said the size I would have thought the flower was a form of hibiscus. Now I have no clue it being that small. It made a beautiful picture.
Glad you are feeling better and hope the New Year gets better for you. helen

I was so psyched about the new year, but its been a little stressful already.  Trying to maintain that positive mental attitude though!

I think getting over stuff takes ten days because we're getting older.  My daughters can get over a cold in three days when it takes me like a month.  What a drag it is getting old.

Beautiful flower - dontcha love finding little treasures like that?  Of course, right now its like 40 degrees here in beautiful downtown Albuquerque and we have no flora whatsoever outside...I've got to come and visit your space to see it - at least for another 4 months or so.

Hang in there girl - it'll turn around!

=) kris

What is it they say, "If you treat a cold you will have it for a week... Ignore it and it will be gone in 7 days" Colds just take a certain amount of time to work thru your system, I think.

The Flower is beautiful... I have no idea what it is, but "A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet..." and be as beautiful ;p
