Summer Garden

IMG_0900It was a beautiful summer day yesterday, and I sat on the back porch and took pictures of flowers, especially of the phlox, but also of the prairie spurge, blackberry lilies, and a daylily. I found myself following a bee through the flowers, and you will see him here. So I hope you will enjoy flying closeup through the phlox flowers with a bee and me!

I can almost hear this daylily playing beautiful music!

The delicate spray of white flowers is prairie spurge. IMG_0902

These are blackberry lilies. I love the way the faded blossoms twist themselves into a corkscrew. The seed clusters for these do look like blackberries.

Lastly, a mystery bird. It may be a young starling.
