  2. I took some pictures of foxglove last year, but I had no idea what it was. Now I hope I find some again so I can say I know the name.

  3. Since all your May flowers are so pretty, I'll overlook the snake that seemed to make it's way in there

  8. Beautiful pictures for the Brenda Photo Challenge, Steve. Love that last Iris --and I'm jealous of your Clematis blooms. Ours seems to bloom less and less every year--but it grows....??????? Great pictures!!!

    Have a great weekend.

  9. A beautiful series of flowers, looks like May is very colorful down your way. Great shot of the snake, he's a beauty.

  10. Your first picture is what my children called "wishes". The saying is that if you make a wish and blow all the seeds from a dandelion, your wish will come true. The kids must have freed several billion seeds to replenish the dandelion population.

    The clematis are just spectacular. Beautiful job.

  17. My comment disappeared so if you get two that's the reason. I love your pictures. Especially the first and last. The first one reminds me of my grandkids. They can't ignore those. And Irises are my favorite. Nice job!
