A Potpourri of Photos

My grass got a little long because of the vacation time. The rabbit in the backyard thought it was nice and did a little trimming. It likes the clover in the yard. The Giant Blue Hostas is in bloom. It definitely puts out the best blooms of the Hostas family.
The Calla Lilies are in full bloom.
I have two types the pink,
and the yellow. This one had a visitor which I shot.
Here is another with a teeny Grasshopper.
My Double Red Begonias also had a visitor,
it was a lightning Bug.
Here he is face on crawling on the flower.
I certainly had a nice trip around the house.

Great "potpourri" indeed.

As for your question, yes I did start with a photo ... I was on a ship (that I'll be showing quite soon), looked down and saw all those fish ... snap, catch ... then I was playing with DCENHANCER (freeware that you can easily download from th net) and PICASA 2 and got that ... once I liked it, I thought it could be worth showing.

Could that bunny be any cuter?! Love all the flowers, too. You saw so many things!! Well done!

Carletta said...

Looks like you certainly did have a nice trip around the house. It's always good to get home.
Love the bunny.

I am so pleased to see your little white Dutch clover and the bunny rabbit. That means something is pollinated the clover to keep it going otherwise it will die out as mine is almost gone.

I see you have pollinating flies and lightening bugs and so do I and am thankful we do have some insects left but not many.

I enjoyed your photography as I usually do.

I have been thinking why people choose to shoot pictures from here and not from over there.

And what do they think about before and while they press the shutter.

Odd things to think about but it is akin to what do barking dogs sound like in different nations.

Thanks for your visit to my blog and for the comment there. I do my best to repay visits with visits and comments with comments.

Love the close up bugs... I wish Ihad more of a liking to gardening but it holds not fun for me now.. but I certainly love your flowers and plants.

Juhi said...

Look who lives in your garden while you might be vacationing! nice pics.

Now those pictures are a lot more appealing than the vultures. Have a great week. Pappy

Jack and Joann said...

I'm with Texican. Flowers and insects beat those vultures by a country mile. This was a wonderful walk around your yard.

Stacey Huston said...

Vacations are wonderful, but you know you have it made when you are glad to be home.. beautiful flowers and visitors to your yard.

evlahos said...

and this is a very beautiful set. wonderful natural colors and close up

Willard said...

That is a good series of shots, and I liked todays post on your trip as well.

In reference to your comment on my post today: I find that you, Kerri, and Abe see a lot of rabbits. I think this may be because there are not nearly as many predators in your area.

I don't know about Kerri, but you and Abe are in town which would definitely be a deterrent to the presence of the larger predators such as coyotes and foxes.

Wow your bug pictures are great. They look like they came from a science book. Pretty flowers too.
