can we speak in flowers. it will be easier for me to understand - nayyirah waheed . 07.07.18 Dorothea Dix Park, Raleigh, North Carolina

Deep wine-colored leaves make purple fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’) a stand-out in any planting. It blends beautifully with pink, white or lavender leaves and flowers. Buff-colored, bottlebrush seed heads appear in late summer and linger through winter. Leaves and seedheads turn a lovely straw color after frost arrives. Purple fountain grass is widely used as an annual and looks fantastic in containers or planting beds. --from DIY Network . . @diynetwork #raleigh #northcarolina #dixpark #filmphotography #backlit #naturephotography #shootmanual #pentax #pentaxlx #smcpentax #50mm14 #fujifilm #superia400 #filmgrain #scanyourownfilm #photoshopexpress

They say even wildflowers must learn to grow in unexpected places, so yesterday Willow and I spent the day somewhere new. I took a leap of faith moving to #Raleigh in 2015, alone, in a new place, knowing no one— and I’m so happy it brought me to where I am now.

Last saturday at #sunfest #dixpark

Is there anything more HAPPY then a field full of flowers? Bright, joyful sunflowers really bring a smile to my face and make it feel like summer here in North Carolina! I was so thrilled to walk through the giant field! Also...my shirt is on point! . . . #travel #gayboy #travelvlogger #travelgram #traveler #lgbttravel #northcarolina #raleigh #dixpark #instagram #instatravel #gaytravel #usa #followme #workwithme #mynormalgaylife

My daughter enjoying the sunflower field @dixpark last Friday. #strikeapose

I didn’t see the sunflowers until they were a little past their prime, but there were still some vibrant ones left. The bees didn’t seem to mind. 🌻🐝 . . . . #sunflowerfield #sunset #dorotheadixpark #dixpark #dixparkraleigh #cityofraleigh #raleighmagazine #visitraleigh #downtownraleigh #visitnc #scenicnc #northcarolinaoutdoors #ncoutdoors #naturalnorthcarolina
