Pictures Around The Yard

First Happy Birthday Marcy!

A few pictures that I took yesterday and today. I encourage you to look at the pictures in a larger view... they are much better that way :-) For larger views; right click on the pictures and choose open in a new window to avoid reloading this page.

A moth that was sleeping by the door. I searched and could not figure out what type it was. View it large... what a big eye it has... and where is the other antennae.

The Aurora Light Blue Delphinium is blooming.

A closer look at one of the flowers. You have just got to look at this one in larger view... Isn't it beautiful!

This Dwarf Coreopsis has been chewed upon and has part of its petals missing... I think the damage was done by slugs. Frank put out slug bait last night and no signs of slugs this morning. The insect on the right of the picture is a hoverfly... not sure what the other one is, but they are both small. This is another picture that really needs to be seen in the larger view.

In the garden the tomatoes are beginning to bloom. They were backlit with the sun this morning. Okay... now look at it in larger view so you can see the sun shining through the bloom.

A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety. -- Ansel Adams



  1. Good Morning, Zaroga,
    Wonderful photos! Love the one of the tomato blooms! Very detailed.

  2. What pretty flowers and oh I can imagine the smell of those blossoming vegetable plants!

  3. Love the moth and your flowers are so beautiful! Hey, will you send some of that hot weather our way? :)

  4. Beautiful flowers...That moth is awesome when you click to make the picture larger.

  5. I love the quote! You blooms are wonderful too.

  6. You are up early this AM reading Blogs, LOL! I Love all the pictures! The moth looks like he has damage to the one eye with the missing antennae, doesn't it?
    I love the way the blue in the flower sparkles! Great shot! I am trying to decide what I am going to enter in the Festival of Flowers Photo contest this year. I know I am going digital enhancement this year!
    You are so right about enjoying children! i am so blessed to teach the range I do because I know exactly what to expect and know the reason children go through the 'terrible twos' is because they don't have the vocabulary to communicate and people don't take time to help them express! Like us being plopped down in the middle of Russia!
