Hi folks! I just wanted to share this picture with you. I snapped it this morning. The bees & wasps have been terrible this year. (“Terrible” as in bothersome when you’re eating lunch outside, but also “terrible” as in lots and lots of bees that are cool to look at as they go about their business.) Anyway, I think it’s a cool picture. What’s your thoughts?
This evening I took a walk around my yard with my little girl and my camera. We planted a few potatoes in an old dirt pile (for lack of garden space and having extra seed potatoes), planted a couple of cucumbers and transplanted a few tomatoes (left over from Grandma’s greenhouse), caught a frog and watched a giant beetle, and through it all – took lots of pictures. So here are a few highlights – at least the ones that were in focus…
Our journey started in the garden where the peas are starting to pop up. This is the spot that was lawn last year, so I’m thinking it may be a bit grassy/weedy this year.
Our raspberries that we transplanted last year are coming along.
The sunflowers have made their appearance.
The squash is a little nervous about showing it’s face.
My pumpkin, hit by frost on May 26th, may actually recover.
The mosquitoes are out enjoying the blossoms of my Ethel Pink Mayday.
This ladybug posed for us on the tip of a Tiger Lily.
We quickly snapped this picture of this bumble bee before it buzzed off.
These buffalo beans grow all around this area.
These shooting stars are scattered around the wetlands.
None of my close-up shots worked very well, but these little purple wildflowers sure looked pretty – even the dandelions seemed to fit in.
Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing these pictures almost as much as I did taking them. Oh wait, let me show you one more. It’s my favorite, but I’m biased…
