Our crape myrtles begin blooming during summer an continue to do so through the fall. I photographed a few of their very first blossoms a couple of days ago. The flowers are gorgeous.
The sunflowers planted in our garden are doing well. None of them have opened yet, but they will do so soon. Although the colorful red sunflower in this photo still immature, it is already beautiful.
I found this beetle exploring a blackberry flower when I was out taking photos. From this angle it looks like he’s smelling the blossom.
Yesterday afternoon I captured one of my best clover shots ever. Half of its pedals were dead, but the other half were still standing strong. Clovers are beautiful flowers, but you can’t really see their beauty until you look at them up close.
I captured this dandelion growing in the shade of our backyard hedge. It looks so bright and radiant with that beautiful yellow in contrast with the dark shade of the hedge. That blurred yellow spot in the background is a second dandelion.
As I was walking around the lawn yesterday, I discovered this beautiful wildflower growing near our pine trees. I’ve never seen a flower like this before. Its shape closely resembles a star!
Our honey suckle vine is now producing brilliant red flowers. The ruby throat humming birds and the bees love them. The bunch in the photo above will open soon.
Last year, we planted several vines of morning glories. We noticed a small morning glory vine creeping up our chain link fence a little while back, but only this morning did we notice this magnificent purple morning glory in its splendor. I’m hoping the vine will continue to produce flowers.
I think we’ve finally got our garden up and going. This year, we plan to plant lots of flowers. They are so beautiful and take less work than vegetables. The marigolds in the photo above aren’t very big yet, but there’re already gorgeous. I photographed them at several different angles, but I thought this ground level shot looked best.
It won’t be long until this beautiful yellow blossom turns into a delicious tomato. We have a good many blossoms on our tomato vines now, and I hope that means we’ll have a good crop this year.
If you’re going barefoot in our backyard, watch where you step! Bees and wasp of all shapes and sizes flock to feed on the multitude of clover growing among the grass. That’s what this honey bee was doing when I captured him the other day.
Happy mothers day everyone! I hope you all enjoy my card! I took the photo earlier this spring, and I added the text using my photo editor.
This beautiful yellow dandelion made a great ground level shot. Although dandelions are a bit annoying when they shoot up in your garden or yard, they are still beautiful wildflowers and make excellent photos.
Clover takes over our yard during spring. This one had managed to climb higher than all the grass down below it. I hope it survives the lawnmower!
Dandelions are sprouting up everywhere in our yard, like they always do during spring. I captured this tiny bug exploring one of them yesterday. I didn’t even notice him till after I had snapped the photo.
