The North East is experimenting with several days of rain right now, in fact, it appears as though we will be having more rain this week, making it three weeks in a row. I can say, one or two overcast days brought me out to the veggie garden for the much needed thinning and weeding but not anything else, so with much ado about the weather, I've captured some flowers with my camera and decided I would share them, they are some of the blooms we've had over the last month. Wild oats.
Lady slipper and bunch berry.
A holly berry, close-up.
I thought this one was cute.
and finally, a flower from my snowball bush although it looks more like a flake.
Lily of the valley, one of my favorite scents!
I'm not sure what this tree is, it gets loaded with these trailing flowers and it has a wonderful gray smooth bark. Any ideas would be appreciated, until then myself and my daughter call it the "kitty cat tail tree."
A lovely white lilac with an insect we first thought was a baby hummingbird because of it's long beak, no shown in the picture, but alas! Baby hummingbirds don't have antennae.
a close-up of goat's rue.
Pink geranium growing by my mailbox.
Pink peony, my poor pictures get dark from here on in, I was desperate to get some shots and took them on the only overcast, clear day we had recently.
Yellow lilies with purple iris.
Thanks to a heavy coating of horse manure, my iris are gorgeous this year. I know some call these Japanese iris but we have always referred to them as blue flag iris, they are native to this area and are found in swampy, low lands.
More yellow lilies.
My highly fragrant moss rose and after this rain, the whole bunch of these should be open filling my nose with their perfume.
A little tenuous bramble rose that last only a day, the white flower float it's one hundred (seems like) petals down to the ground if it is touched at all, a wild kind of rose.
And finally this photo that has a glimpse of sun and a small piece of mica, is a sedum growing on top one of my rock walls. Someday I will post on those too!
Until then, hope to see you on a bright sunny day....In the Garden.
