Blossoms,Butterflies and Birds

As the title suggests,this post has a little of all three,blossoms,butterflies and birds.


I have really begun liking the Geraniums.They put on a good show of flowers all summer,all I need to do is a little deadheading from time to time.
The plant on my deck has been a bright spot for a while now.I love those bright flowers.


As much as I love the flowers,the buds are just as special.


I had been watching this little butterfly land briefly on different objects and I was hoping it would land on one of my garden signs.


It seemed that it had read my thoughts and landed on this decorative piece.


I have had the chance to photograph several Snowy Owls this past winter and even into spring.I have one complaint.Why do they always sit on the wrong side of the wire?


Well,if the bird won't cooperate,than into Photoshop we go and solve the problem.This is by no means a perfect editing job,but at least the wire is not right over the face.


Thanks for allowing me to share a few of my photos.

Closing Thought:
Nature is the art of God.

  11. Gorgeous---all of them... I used to have geraniums --but changed to begonias. Both are easy to take care of... Glad you enjoy yours. They are pretty....And yes, the buds are always so pretty also... George sometimes prefers the Rose BUDS better than the open ones. I generally like them fully blooming.

    Pretty butterfly --and I love your little birdie garden decoration. AND--the snowy owls are GREAT..... I've never seen one!

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  21. Geraniums are my mom's favorite flower. She always gets a couple to plant in her cast iron bucket every year. This year she didn't, but it is because she is sick. I will always and forever think of her when I see one. Beautiful images and what luck that the butterfly landed so perfectly! Have a super day!
