DAILY PHOTOGRAPHS Click on an image to see the rest of the photos in that gallery 6/15 Blueberries Coming AlongWonder if we'll get any this year. The bushes are just loaded.6/14 "Double Play" Pink SpireaThe Bumble bees just love this. Lots of blossoms now. It's an easy grower and the deer don't seem to like it.6/13 Gilled MushroomI think this is an Agricus species, but I'm not sure. It was growing in an open lawn area under oak trees, in an area that had a pretty good layer of acorns and mostly hop clover around it. Mushrooms are sprouting up all over now as we've had so much rain lately.6/12 Purple and White ColumbineBlooming strong again this year.6/11 Monarch Larva On Our MilkweedWe were so excited to find this on our milkweed growing near our garage door this morning. When I went out this afternoon I could not find it, nor any more droppings from it. So sad.6/10 Lichen In The RainHad lots of rain in the past 36 hours. This yellow lichen on the trees just glows against the black of the bark. When it's dry the color changes to a dull gray/green color.6/9 Ominous Dark Clouds ComingLots of rain tonight. Just made it back from our walk in the nick of time.6/8 Red Fungus On Old StumpIs this a fungus or something else? Sure looks like a fungus, but what?6/7 Hop CloverApparently called that because of the dried flowers look like hops--can't prove it by me. The flowers are only about 3-4 mm in diameter. Tried macro focus but my little D10 wouldn't focus on the flower up close. I'll try it with a DSLR soon.6/6 Nasturtium Finally BloomingThese flowers are always so prolific and have beautiful colors.6/5 ColumbineA couple years ago a purple columbine suddenly showed up, not planted or seeded by us. This year we've got a couple large white ones. I wonder where they are coming from. The location is up close to the house amongst hostas and Lilys-of-Valley.6/4 Sky Show TonightOn way back from Battle Creek tonight.6/3 Daddy Long-Legs Hiding on Milkweed PlantWas checking on progress of the milkweed blossoms and saw this guy "hiding" down in the small leaves.6/2 French IrisesThis is another new group of plants in their second year. Beautiful smaller blossoms.6/1 New Double Blue IrisBarb just planted these last summer. Beautiful flowers this year.
