You take such beautiful pictures, I'm kind of embarrassed to have you have looked at mine!

I was looking for goldfinches this morning. A neighbor has a feeder with thistle seeds that they love but I don't think they've made it this far north yet!

Beautiful photos, as always! But the bee and the frog feel bad for not being mentioned....

Barbara Rogers said...

So very lovely, the first is my favorite. I imagined how they must smell, especially the pale purple iris. I have one that smells of grapes. Thanks for sharing these lovely things this morning.

Lovely , lovely , lovely.

I can never have enough of flowers or birds...had a rose breasted grosbeak at my feeder this morning...no camera ;(

... and to the bird, who is so much smaller than we are, the flowers must look so much larger. How much more wonderful then must the world look to the little bird and yet he has so many fewer years to enjoy it.

Makes you think, doesn't it!
Great pictures Vicki :)

I can feel the lushness of the countryside; wonderful. And that is such a cheerful flower composition in the vase!

And, what a bird! I love the goldfinches, in their bright Summer finery, or even in the drab colors of Winter. They are so full of energy and noise.

Not to mention a frog and a bee. Lovely, as ever, Vicki.

I enjoyed looking back at your posts (I am behind again after another trip.) You sure had a lot of people at your farm for Easter – it must have been so much fun. As far as I can remember, even if we went to see the cousins, the most we would be was 8… I really enjoyed your wisteria shots – and the lamp of course. You have so many pretty flowers around you. We have planted our petunia and mostly impatiens since we have such shade. But we went to the Smith-Gardens were roses were in abundance as well as other flowers. It is only 2 miles away. But I felt kind of bad enjoying all these flowers without the work, so I volunteered to join the “Rose Warriors” group. They come to cut, fertilize, etc.

I don’t know if I should read that 1491 book – I get so upset at the way the US has treated its native inhabitants – it is shameful. I still remember reading ads in French magazines when I lived there, asking to help American Indians as their life expectancy was the same as the poorest country in Africa. My daughter did her medical thesis on an Indian Reservation out West – she had many stories.
