Sunday Stills Flowers & plants

Make A wish!!!
This day was so fun, working in the yard and having the camera handy for finding the odd shot, like below..an extinct "Chinese lantern". You could barely recognise it, a mere "shell" of it's former self. I laid it upon some bricks chips, to represent what color it used to be!

Of course I had to get my favorites...from my home growing up as a child..I naughtily loved to take these "Bleeding Heart" beauties apart...striping them of their pretty pink skirts! Mom was furious with me!

Thanks so much ED for this fun photography challenge! Please click the title to view more spring in flower/plant form today!

  1. Hi Kacy, love the Bleeding Hearts story! I used to have Bleeding Hearts at our other house but don't have any out here on the farm. Oh, the Chinese Lantern skeleton is very neat! The rain stopped for today and I got the yard mowed, but no :-( riding.....I wanted to in the worst way but had to do chores, hum, maybe tomorrow. Haven't gotten to ride since the canter day, on Tuesday. Rain, rain go away come again some other day!

  3. Those are amazing. I was really struck by the dandelion photo. I took a picture of one of those, which will be posted in the morning, but your angle and focus is so impressive. I almost want to pull my photo out because it wilts in comparison.

  5. I've never seen bleeding hearts before. They must need lots of water. lol!
    They are beautiful, and so is the chinese lantern. Wow!

    And if my daughter saw that dandelion fluff, there would only be a green stem left. She loves to blow them into the wind.

    Smooches!
