Take a Walk With Me....

I am no professional photographer, I'm sure you have already figured this out, but I do LOVE taking pictures. I really love taking pictures of flowers....for obvious reasons :  you don't have to bribe them to be still, you don't have to make silly noises to make them smile pretty, and they don't talk back or whine when you tell them "Just one more picture and we are done." (I don't actually talk to flowers...I promise)


Anyway....my camera is a pretty basic "point and shoot" not a lot of bells and whistles. It's a Nikon coolpix L110, Ashton Kutcher told me to buy it...so I did :)


Now...let's take a walk around my yard and see what's blooming, and don't worry, there will be lots of breaks to "stop and smell the roses"





I wish I could tell you the name of this beauty...but with a lot of searching I came up empty....I got some of these from my Momma's yard and they just keep coming back




These beautiful blooms happen when we don't trim the hedges...I kind of like them...my hubby wants them to go!


I'm looking forward to lots and lots of black berries this summer...yummmm



Quick  story about our roses...our house was built in 1945 and we are the second owners. Because of this we know so much of our home's history. This rose bush was planted by the original owner. She passed away many years ago and her daughter still comes to check on "Mother's rose bush" a few times a year. It is always in full bloom on Mother's day so that she can bring a few to the cemetery where her parents are buried



Looks like there is another photographer on the scene....



This is the picture he took...nice composition don't you think?


Cicada's ......please go away. You are really freaking me out! (they are every where you look!!)



Oh, Peonies how I love thee.....



These Lilies make me feel like I should be on a tropical vacation...hmmm a girl can dream, right?


I hope you all enjoyed our walk together! I feel like I've been on a trip to the botanical gardens...without leaving my yard :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!

  1. What beautiful flowers you have!!! I am so jealous! Our old house had amazing flowers and our new place doesn't have any kind of landscaping or flowers. So I shall drool over your peony picture (because they are my favorite) and just adore all of the rest! I love the history with the roses too, that is so cool!

  4. Gorgeous Gorgeous! Lilies are my favorite! Thanks so much for always stopping by my blog, it SO makes my day! I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a "boy" version of those wipe bands, but I'm just not sure how to do something that doesn't come off girly...if I do, I'll be sure to let you know!
