I did not notice the lady bug and the green lace wing until I had uploaded this photo to my computer, it was a pleasant surprise.

Last week we had about 6 inches of rain, rain has been predicated the last 3 days but has missed us, heavy rain is a potential tonight as well, I'm hoping this round of storms misses us as well.

Mosaic Monday

I tried out a PSE tutorial that someone else was doing on one of my favorite photo editing message boards ,   the roses are from my garden, the butterflies are from Reiman's Butterfly House that we visited this past Saturday.

To bee or not to bee.

The bees love my false indigo, there were always several buzzing around the blooms.

I love this rose, I have had it in my garden for years.    It is very fragrant which is always important to me.

Today's Flowers

Posted by Picasa

Something a bit different today as these flowers are not from my garden but from a wedding we attended yesterday, the flowers were beautiful and the food was yummy.  This is a just a small portion of the flowers at the wedding reception and the church.

Bath time for the girls.................... it involves rubbing one self on the floor, dog bed, couch, rugs anything that is handy.   To get rid of that awful shampoo smell or maybe it is the Red Door my husband spritzes on them :).

Knock Out Roses

Posted by Picasa

Our roses are beautiful this year, with all the snow cover we had last winter, we only lost 1 bush to winter kill.

I have June 11th off, we are going to Reiman Gardens for their Rose Festival, I can not wait :).  I love the Butterfly House that they have, we have not been there since last December so I am counting the days until  the 11th.
