Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Above: This photo appealed to me because it shows
the daylily in every stage of the bloom's life,
from small buds to full bloom to spent.

June Blooming Bulb, Yellow and Nameless

I do not know the name of this delicate yellow blooming bulb. The blooms are small, less than 1 inch in diameter.  Love that star shape. This photo was taken June 11th, so, it is a late blooming bulb, even in lower Michigan.  These were gifted to me a number of years ago by a dear friend from from the Netherlands.

Upside of Flipside's Water Lily

Linda's (Flipside) entry this week in Wordless Wednesday is, Flipside of a Water Lily, another fascinating and different, dare we say, flipside way, of looking at the world.  My response today is a water lily in bloom, taken in Gulf Shores Alabama just this spring.  My Reflections From the Fence readers may remember it.  So, the upside of Linda's flipside of a water lily:

Alice's Tree Penthouse, Up Close

*You might enjoy visiting Linda at Flipside for her great post Wordless Wednesday--Go Ask Alice...... , as well as my response to her Wordless Wednesday challenge, Alice is Gonna Have to Climb a Bit.  You can see, and sorta read, the fun we have on Wednesdays with her photo challenges.

Hot Pinks and Purples, but, What am I?

From Son # 1's yard, perennial.  Believe it may be Amethyst Dream Bachelor's Button.  I found some at the nursery the other day, and bought it.  We have this new area in the yard where a bush died.  It will become part of what I am thinking of calling my Red Hatter's garden.  Yep, red and purples!
