Last week one day, a Hummingbird hit our window ( even though I have lots of pretty crap hanging up in the windows). My husband rescued the bird and held it until it recovered enough to fly off by itself.
The feathers on his throat were beautiful.
It was a wonderful experience to see him up close and personal.
These are Knock Out Roses..they were inside the garden department at Menards. I took some photos in there last Saturday after the Airshow. Some of the sales associates looked at me really weird but they didn't tell me I had to stop taking photos. Perhaps they viewed me as a potential customer..not! I could not believe the junk that they were selling..most of it was buggy and overgrown or had been sprayed with insecticide and had burned edges. I was disgusted..not only at Menards for buying plants that look like crap..but at the public for buying them. End of rant. Check out more Macros here.
The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was flowers or wildflowers. I chose wildflowers. This is a tiny little wild violet that is in our yard, it always blooms in May.
This is a Wild Iris, this one just happens to be in someones garden. The thing in the background is a bird cage..part of the fancy smancy art in gardens movement..please just give me plain ole flowers any day of the week. Have a good week everyone..we had five days of rain last week and two days of sunshine:)
Well the Oak Trees are finally doing something, it takes them forever to put on their leaves. We have Burr Oaks here..these are their catkins and their leaves just emerging. Check out more macros here.:)
