Flowers at the International Peace Gardens

Well folks,it's time to step out of the cactus house and see some of the rest of these gardens.
I have two more posts from that day,one more from the Gardens and area and one from a side trip we took.

If my memory serves me right,this was actually taken in a part of the Cactus House.It is some sort of fern,I believe.I just liked the color and the detail in this picture.


The Autumn Joy Sedum was gorgoeus,even though it was only August when I was there.


I enjoy flower pictures and when I get an insect of any kind that wants to pose,that is a bonus.


The Honey Bee semed to enjoy these Asters as much as I did.


I have seen lots of Cone-flowers,but I don't think I had seen this color before.

Here are some more flowers in the same colors. I think they are so pretty.


I cannot do a post about flowers and not include at least one rose.

Thought for Toady:
My world is brighter,and more beautiful because of you. Thank you.

  1. For me, if the insect is a dragonfly, it's extra special. Great capture. Love the Asters and the composition of the cone flower shot. The rose image is exquisite.

  3. Don't tell Betsy, but I think the blossoms on the Autumn Joy Sedum you saw is bigger than the blossoms on hers. But Betsy's sedum are just as pretty. I enjoyed each and every one of your photos.

  5. These are brilliant! The fern close up is shimmering green and magnificent. And the dragonfly on the yellow flower, what an awesome surprise! The purple asters with bee, and the orange flowers, all of these are my favorites.

  17. I just love autumn joy! They are so hardy and show a great amount of color in fall, even at altitude. Those Coneflowers are lovely. That little dragonfly is walking the plank!
