My daughter. Sometimes you chance into a setup, just pure luck to capture the perfect moment.

Autumn in the Garden

Buzzing around

This little guy was flitting about from flower to flower and I got lucky he was still long enough to get this shot. Gosh, I love my poppies.

First poppy

The very first poppy of the season! I love them. They are glorious for about 2-3 weeks each summer and then the blooms die off and I am left with a giant ugly spot in my yard. I was hoping to move them to a different location before they bloomed this spring, but didn't get to it in time. I will have to try to get it done later in the summer.

The back of this tulip reminds me of a pinwheel, one of my favorite childhood toys. :)
