I don't see a thread with flower pic and we all take them, right? Here are a couple I shot yesterday of the peonies in my back garden. They seem to be extra happy this year! I have a ton of flower pics, but it's your turn...

These aren't recent (as you can tell ) but what the heck. Can't tell you how surprised I was to find cactus growing about an hour east of here. The third photo I have no idea what it is.

This is in Drumheller, AB where the main draw is: Royal Tyrrell Museum
Nice. Much to my surprise I discovered someone with a huge cactus garden in their front yard, right here in Windsor, Canada. No, they don't take them in over Winter. Yes, this is the deep south!

I honestly don't know where I got this one at. But, it is quite beautiful, isn't it?

I have tons of shots that I struggle to recall taking, even relatively recent ones. Others I remember every detail of the moment they were taken. Funny, isn't it?

Yes, that is indeed lovely!

All wildflowers, pics taken yesterday. We leave most of our property natural and enjoy each year's kaleidoscopic wildflower bloom and, of course, the many critters.

My black raspberry patch has gone mad this year. It will be a bumper crop for sure!

Yeah, we got killed last year by drought after the fruit set. This year it sure does look like a bumper crop for both black and red raspberries and the blackberries look abundant too. There's nothing like a wild berry pie, eaten the minute it cools to room temp :-)

Saw a lovely Begonia at work today. And then had Scarlet Begonias stuck in my head ALL day. "...she wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls..." Oh well, at least it's one of my fave GD songs.
