MY FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING!

I thought I'd share a few photos of parts of my flower garden.


My second favorite thing to do....my first being creating my fantasy sculptures and going to art shows...is taking closeup shots of flowers!

The lilies above just opened yesterday and I had to get a few shots of them!




For some reason my snap dragons are off to a really slow start as you can see in the lower right corner of the above photo . It must be Wisconsin's cold start to spring.....or maybe I'm just a wee bit impatient!

Actually, I'm not sure what these flowers are. All I know is that it is a perennial. Does anyone know what it is?
This is my front yard "fairy garden"....red impatiens this year.
We usually take a trip to the arboratum in Dubuque, Iowa at least once in the summer, so hope to get some good photos from there.

Absolutely Gorgeous. We've had so much rain all the weeds are very lush but the petals get knocked off the flowers as soon as they bloomed. I really enjoy seeing your beauties.
