I'll bet the bees and butterflies are in heaven around there.

The beauty and the beasts. Though, even the beasts have beauty about them.

You don't seem to have too many bugs but when you have them, you have them! :-)

on your photograph the first (yellow) flower looks gorgeous, in our grass it is a terrible weed as it suffocates other plants and the "lawn". i love your views at tiny and everyday details. cheers from the far away green isle and thank you for revisiting!

Oh, beautiful!
Is that a GARDENIA you have just growing out there???
I have tried a few times to keep [potted] gardenias alive and have failed.

Too hard to pick a favorite.

Vicki Lane said...

June, it IS a gardenia -- in a pot. I've killed many a potted gardenia in my time but I've had this one for six years now. It goes into the unheated greenhouse in winter and sits outside in half-day sun during the warm months. I think it's the dry heat of indoors that kills them.

Pretty flowers Vicki, but x-nay on the wasp!

Wonderful bouquet this morning; I love that you give as much space to the dandelion, daisy and clover as to the others...and love the shot of the next to the last purple flower (although I can't think of its name right now)...

Beth said...

Lovely flowers, Vicki. I've been pleased to see our red clover bloom big and lush here this year. I have some growing with purple catmint and white ox-eye daisies, and they look wonderful together!

You should hear me 'oohing' and 'aahing'! What a feast of nature, shape, texture, colour. The iris is my special favourite.
