Sunday Stills

Once again it is time for my favorite post Sunday stills. This week was a fun one for me, Kentucky is bursting with color.


Now on to business, by now there should be some greenery in just about everywhere, so lets shoot some flowers and plants for the folks without flowers…:-)

To see more of the wonderful shots taken use the link above.
That is a steady bee (no idea of the real name that is just what my Grandma called them) The flower is a weed, but i kinda enjoy weeds they are so misunderstood.
Another shot of a flower gone astray these are see that came up volunteer under the winter bird feeder. I have a hard time pulling up any flower!
Forget-me-nots and violets. I planted a pack of Forget-me-nots a few years back and they have attempted to take over the little part of my world.
A clematis just beginning to bud

The ice storm did so much damage to the Redbuds and Dogwoods very few are bloomimg this year, I hope they recover for next year.

Awesome!! When we first moved into our house (new construction) we didn't have anything in the back but mud. Anything green was welcome, weed or otherwise.

dibear said...

I believe that was your great grandmother Ed. :) The correct phrase is: "A weed is just a flower growing out of place". Loved all your pics, can't wait to see the blooming clementis.

June said...

Beautiful! I love weeds, aka wildflowers. I'm delighted to have you name the blue flowers. I have never known what a forget-me-not was, but found a whole patch of them growing down in my field.

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Nature is such a comforting pleasure.

I always liked wild flowers. They can be just as pretty.

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing some of your pretties. Some of my favorite plants are probably considered weeds..... :)

Sherri said...

Violets--love them. Great shots!

prairierunner said...

If it were not for weeds I might not have any flowers ;) I love forgetmenots and await my own clematis which hasn't even appeared from the ground yet.

Andrea Baker said...

I bet that clematis is going to stunning when it blooms! great photos.

Jen Mo said...

All really great! I just love how you got the bug on the first flower! Great job!

I like the clematis because it shows such promise and possibility!

Steffie said...

I too am a weed flower fan. I can't pull them up either, so have a HUGE red clover plant in one of my gardens. It looks like a bush it's so big. :-D

Nice photos! It's too bad about the redbuds and dogwoods.

gtyyup said...

Those are great...even weeds have their place in the world!

Annette said...

Weeds are herbs growing where you don't want them too. =) As you said, I cannot pull up flowers.
Love the bee.

Patches said...

Quinn said...

I like the violets! I have wild(?-I didn't plant them) ones blooming like crazy around here.

Regular Guy said...

Your dogwoods will come back, there are pretty hardy. Great shots, our clematis are blooming all of the time now too. We have a mix of purple and white.

I really like the first one, a steady bee..interesting ..I have never heard them called that before:)

Pete said...

Nice idea, giving weeds the spotlight.
