Baby Birds Everywhere I See; In the Rafters , In the Roses

My mom told me the other day that there was a nest just outside my sisters window, When I visited for my sisters birthday I was so excited to see this, I took this  photo still inside the house through the front window. its hard to tell but there are 5 of them. I really thought that the nest was beautiful there are still dried flowers attached to the stalks that are weaved in.

 A few weeks earlier I had went to my sisters rose bush to clean it up a bit after all the blooms died and I found this little guy just staring at me,he wasn’t scared  so I took this quick photo

He seems to live at the very bottom of the bus,h in the center of where the canes branch out,  He will climb to the top of the rose bush look around then snuggle back into his thorny lair.

001fhfdhb,b,b,bnm,

I am really pleased with this photo I took from my garden. Bachelors Buttons, also known as cornflower is the source of the color cornflower blue.  This beautiful flower retains its color very well when dried and is even edible, tasting similar to a clove

White Poppy in my garden

This single white bloom popped up the other day. It may not be as lovely as my other poppies but I found the little brown specks on antique white petals charming. I am really fond of the center of poppies so intricate and beautiful.

Valentines Orchid Show

Every Valentines day week end my fiance takes me to a local orchid show, while I love all these beautiful exotic blooms, it is the amazing scent of orchids  that  pours out of the entrance  that I remember the most.

2013-02-10-1412392013-02-10-141418 I have been so incredibly busy planning my  diy wedding, It was so nice to put all that aside and enjoy  a quiet moment of tranquility… I just wish I could bottle the scent.

Dahlia Show

I Happend to come across a Dahlia show this weekend, I have 3 small plants myself that have yet to bloom successfully so it was nice to see them all in full bloom. I always liked Dahlias there are so many varieties, forms and colors ( no true black dahlias though) although this one was close

 so many beautiful flowers i had trouble deciding which to post so… this is going to be a long posting of mostly flowers

Seeing all of these really encourages me to grow some more varieties. I was suprised i didn’t see any dinner-plate dahlias though
