My friend snapped this shot of sunflower which was nearly ready to bloom, but not open yet. Love this! I have never taken a photo of a sunflower before it opened… not sure why because it is amazing!
Wildflowers are starting to show their amazing colors. We had three inches of rain early last week which was great. I think our flowers will start blooming the next few weeks in abundance. I love the beginning of wildflower season and the new beginning it brings us. I know, for me, spring brings me excitement and […]
Are these not the most beautiful tulips you have ever seen? One of my friends grows them in her vegetable garden which is protected from the deer. They were extra lovely!
With the continuing drought and the big flop this spring for the Bluebonnets my favorite flowers did make a showing. Not as bountiful as past years, but at least some pretty groupings on the roadside. The ones at farm did not really have a showing this year. The Indian Paintbrush is my VERY favorite wildflower […]
It’s almost spring which means it will be flower time soon! I am ready for wildflowers and I am ready to plant flowers. It all makes me very restless. We had a freeze last night which is a good reminder that I must be patient a little bit longer. Here are a few photos from […]
Cowboy planted all our sunflowers this year. Our sunflowers had a hard time this summer with the extreme summer heat. This summer was really too hot and we found them very wilted more than once. Cowboy snapped this photo this week of our very last sunflower. I really love our sunflowers and already planning to add more next […]
My friend always has the prettiest flowers at her place every summer. I never know what is going to be blooming and what she will have new each year. She plants mostly perennials with an few annuals to make things fun each season. Depending on Montana weather,when I am visiting, I am able to enjoy different flowers […]
Took this photo in Montana. The flowers were gently falling from a hanging basket and I thought they were some of the loveliest I have ever seen. I do not have any clue to their identity, but decided to blog them anyway! They are simply beautiful. Thanks to Katy I now know these lovely flowers are Fuchsia!
Snapped this shot of a sunflower at a friend’s ranch yesterday. It has been so hot even the sunflowers have been wilting. I love sunflowers! In July I went to town one morning to grocery only to return to find that the donkeys and goats had “let” themselves into our yard. The first delicacy they went for were my sunflowers. By the […]
Still have flowers blooming in my yard, but the heat is really taking a toll on them even though they are receiving plenty of water. I should have snapped shots before they all started showing the effects of the hot weather. I do love having spring and summer blooming plants and really enjoy them every morning […]
These are the last of our beautiful spring pasture flowers. Well, these are not exactly wildflowers, rather flowers that belong to weeds. The weeds that we do not want in our pastures! Never the less, these weeds have produced many lovely flowers. I do not know the names of the plants these came from. I pretty much try to […]
Think twice when carefully placing your babies, toddlers or kids in wildflowers by the side of the road to catch that perfect Bluebonnet photograph. Take the time to inspect the area really well for anything that bites. This big boy would not play nice.
I love experimenting with my phone photo editing apps. Here are some fun variations of the same photo. There are many apps to download. I try lots of free editing apps & if they do not work well I simply delete them. Here is Pop Art version. Here is Photo Tropedelic version. This version is […]
Spring is gone and summer is here. Here are my last few wildflower shots from our early May flowers. We will really miss our beautiful wildflowers! I love the golden color of the Creeping Oxeye. One last look at our Indian Blankets. I am ordering seeds to plant in my flower beds next spring. Notice the bee […]
