...than the last post. I thought I would just post pictures of some of the flowers blooming in my gardens. Actually all but one of these are in the same garden. I have numerous gardens but I seem to have focused on this one more than the others when it came to planting. You can see there is a lot of empty space behind the portraits and I'm looking forward to it filling out over the years. In the spring it was full of daffodils but I cut the faded leaves away and added perennials. I love Gloriosa Daisies so I bought a couple this year.Rudbeckia "Irish Eyes"
One of the lilies that was already in the garden. Mine are just starting to bloom and they are lovely too!
Lastly I would like to feature the bug of the day. I'm pretty sure this is a type of Wheelbug nymph. (thanks Daniel for letting me know it's a Katydid nymph!) They are the cutest little guys going! They are not afraid of the camera and will stand up to the lens any day. I will have to re-look up these little guys to see if they are harmful to my gardens but for now they can stay. (they can probably stay even if they do eat my plants...they don't have very big mouths!) They are so very tiny, and did I say cute?!!!
