Sunday Stoll: Pretty Finds

Peony
Bearded Iris growing wild

Ste-e-eve, we are hungry!


As I was looking over the iris, a hummingbird buzzed past me and I looked around the cemetery  and was surprised to see a feeder. It is a tiny area with less than 100 graves, but I stop often to look for birds, butterflies and flowers in bloom.


Not exactly where one might find a feeder for hummingbirds and orioles, but obviously on a fairly new grave of someone who cared for them.

Spiderwort
This sage is a smorgasbord for the fat yellow bee.

  2. Peonies were my grandmother's favorite flower. I do not often see a hummingbird sitting. It is an unusual sight. I saw my first wild rose along the side of the road just a couple of days ago.

  5. Peace is the right word. The blooms are lovely! I saw a female hummingbird sit on our garden fence today, while the male flew in a pendulum shape, back and forth, in front of her. I was fascinated. Is that a typical mating behavior, I wonder, or just that male's personal idiosyncrasy? Hmmm! I might have to do a little research!

  9. The sheep stood out to me this time. I don't see many sheep where I travel even though I keep looking for them.
