|This funny, little mushroom has chosen to grow about 8 feet up in one of maple trees.|
No danger of being tromped on up there!
|I love the purple these Irises have to offer, it's just too bad they don't bloom a little longer. But their long|
grassy foliage makes a nice back drop for blooms later on.
|The first of the marigold blooms. I started them all from seed this year, and am so excited to |
finally see a blossom! Isn't that a happy color?
|More irises. and I'm not sure what particular type these are either. I dug them out of a friends' garden|
and they bloom like crazy every Spring.
|I planted a little patch of chives last year and they have produced better than I could have expected. I know|
they are delicious, but I keep them more for their blooms.
|How cute is this little guy??? He loves the chives even more than I do. This patch of flowers is|
always humming with dozens of bees.
|Another cute little thing. He's nearly a week old and although that grass is too long for him, and he |
keeps tripping, it doesn't slow him down much. Just keeps on running.
|I often look at my lawn and think of all the weeding I have to do to keep dandelions from completely taking over. |
But now and again, I stop and take the time to appreciate the beauty in these magical flowers.
|This beauty stopped by my greenhouse for a visit.. She's the size of my palm and not nearly as|
shy as a butterfly should be.
|I love the color of these lilies so much. They make me want a fruit smoothie.|
|At our last home, I had started a collection of lilies, and this year I have decided to rebuild that collection here.|
I added 3 to the garden this year. I have really been loving the yellows and oranges lately.
|A striking contrast between the orange and the purple is what drew me to this bunch.|
