Blooming Wednesday!!

My balloon flowers burst open this morning to greet the sun.

A painted lady sips nectar from a coneflower.


Firefly waits patiently for nightfall under a delicate poppy petal.
(someone needs to write a haiku for this photo)

Hydrangea blooms remind me of summer.

Gorgeous day lily I bought on sale for $5 (reg. $28)!

A baby Jack Be Little pumpkin.
Hello Halloween:)

Hard to believe I made this garden in the spring.


A glimpse of my wildflower garden I started in spring from a seed mixture
my mom bought for me from Rohrer's Seeds.
It is jam packed with flowery goodness!

I squealed a little when I saw the pumpkin! Nothing makes me happier.

I just love wildflower gardens!

What great shots you captured! That butterfly on the coneflower is spectacular. And...that's what a firefly looks like?! Huh.
I was taking photos of my poppies yesterday - I just love their papery petals.

Your photographs are stunning. The detail captured on the butterflies wings is breath taking, as is the detail of the light shining through the poppy petal. Very beautiful!
Keep the exquisite photographs coming!
