I was at my parents’ house this weekend, and these are some pictures from their gardens. The daylilies are in bloom! Can you see the little worm at the center of the flower? Visit As the Garden Grows for more information about Green Thumb Sunday.
Pictures from the Rose Garden
And here’s the new Peony Garden! It was a gorgeous day out yesterday, as you can tell! One of my favorites from the Peony Garden. I’ve decided that I love these flowers. And now, the rose pictures. I think this one was called Peace. And then I tried to get fancy with my close up filters. I’m not sure if it worked. Oh, I just love going down to the gardens when all the flowers are in bloom….
I Love Exotic Plants!

A Wannabe Herb Garden

I will be ready to make some great…
Fun with Macros.
