    First flower pics this year

    We can't handle a garden anymore but Mrs. Coaltrain just has to be growing something. Over the 20+ years that we have lived here she has developed some beautiful perennial gardens around the house. She likes the perennials since they return every year - she says annuals are a waste of money.

    This is nice as it coincides with our photography hobby. I thought I would start a thread so I can share the pics of her flowers as the warm season goes on. Here are the first few shots we took last week. I'm posting this pics at 1024 x 678 - if they are too large let me know and I will post smaller versions. This size however gives a good representation of how they actually look.

    Honeysuckle are finished here, already, as are the iris. The only way we get the floating heart is buying it in a hanging basket, knowing it will be a one season plant.

    Those blooms are beautiful, and the photography first rate!! Thanks for sharing!!

    Very nice, thanks for posting. I'll have to take a few from around here. I do enjoy seeing and shooting some myself and it would be nice to see the variety from across the country.

    Beautiful. I sure miss the wild flowers that were common In Texas when we lived rurally. They were so abundant. Around here, NADA! Wife said we need to spread wild flower seeds around when we eventually move.

    Lovely photos...

    The problem in less rural areas is the passion folks have for keeping things mowed and manicured. My wildflower area gets mowed in October, then not again until around July 4, AFTER the wildflowers have gone to seed. Mowing as soon as the blooms fade, or because tall grass is in the area actually eliminates a lot of the flowers. Notice how and when the State mows along the highway in areas that are covered in wildflowers.

    But, city folks have no tolerance of not looking like they live on a city lot, so they do not get to enjoy the free wildflowers in their own yard, each year.

    Our white peonies have started to open. The pink ones aren't quite ready yet. Peonies are one of my favorites, really like their smell

    Beautiful! I'm not sure if I ever saw them before - are they a domestic flower/bush that you planted?
