 The rain stopped but left a multitude of raindrops on everything. A closeup of this rose proves it.

 Same rose, just not so close.

 The Lord knew I needed a wild daisy plant growing in my flower garden. The striking white and golden blossoms really brighten up the garden.

 Just look at how intricately He designed the center of the daisy.

 Betcha can't guess what this is? I love how the seed pods open to such a sweet looking Little chandelier.

 Can't leave out Miss Pansy. Just look at that sweet face!

 This is the seed pod of Blue Nigella, also called Devil In A Bush or as I prefer, Love In A Mist.

 Here's the Blue Nigella in blossom.

 This old fashioned rose has been here for many years. It was growing at the little house we moved to in 1950. I started a few plants from a piece of a branch and have enjoyed it all this time. Sure wish you could smell it.

 Above is just one of my flower gardens. I have had to battle slugs, rabbits, deer, raccoons and you name it in order to keep this one going.
 Dear little Calla twins. Interesting the deer don't eat them up.
 Here is a large bush of roses like the one I already showed. It seems to like growing over the old chicken house. Probably all that old manure!
 Here she is close up. I think these roses are just gorgeous!!
 I can never resist a picture of my columbine taken from underneath. Just something about it.
 This pink peony is about 6 feet tall but the stems are too weak to support the blossoms which are huge. I have a tomato cage around it which it outgrew, then I staked it but as you can see it just isn't enough support. It looks like my garden angel is trying to hold the plant up with her back.
 Here is a closeup of the above peony. My Sweet Kathy gave me this plant a few years back.
This years vegetable garden is very slow. Our spring like last year has been cold and wet so things just didn't grow well. At least my strawberries are producing. I have put about five gallons in the freezer and canned a few too. If the sun comes out I'll get a lot more and later will have tomatoes, cukes, both English and lemon, Beets, onions and corn. Already I am getting spinach, red leaf lettuce and oak leaf lettuce, kale, spinach and radish.
Thanks for letting me show you my yard.

Oh Bev, I just love your flowers, absolutely stunning! I'm always amazed at how flowers are made, especially the centers. So intricately made. I have a whole bunch of various day lilies that will soon be opening so I'm quite looking forward to that. My faerie garden is really in bloom right now, must go out and take more pictures:-) I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, dear friend. xoxo
