SOME SILLY PHOTOS

 The beautiful pink Peony flower is almost as big as my head.  I had planted these  years ago and enjoy them every year.  They have a faint but very  sweet scent. When they are budding they tend to attract ants partly due to the nectar that forms on the outside of the bud. With the ants activities the blossoms open up. Very symbiotic relationship isn't it?   This year they were beautiful and plentiful. The flowers were so big that I had to put them  in a bowl of water instead of a vase just  to keep them from  toppeling over.



My husband's favorite trellis. It took us a while to get the rambling roses to climb to the top.   


This fern is a transplant from my dad's yard . Few years ago he gave me a few shoots to plant. First  I planted them  at a sunny location they looked miserable, following year I planted them in the shade and their growth  was stunted. Last year I planted them at the bottom of a tree where they were partially in the sun. I think  I finally succeeded in finding them the  right spot. 



I'm not very lucky growing Iris. I must have planted variety of colors over the years, most of them didn't come up. This is the only one that came up this year.
Just look at this funny cloud formation. I took this picture from the car. ( I wasn't driving)..
