week end flowers

The colors of the butterfly match the zinnia's color.
 

I can always count on these for color in the summer




I found little tiny grasshoppers eating the leaves and plants this year.


I am sharing with Tina's Pic story weekend flowers and Todays Flowers

  2. Enjoyed the photos, Betsy, and recognized the frittilary in the first photo as we have quite a few in our wildflower gardens.

  4. Beautiful photos of flowers, Betsy. I'm so glad you left me a comment. I have spent many years in and around Mennonite communities and you are right, they are resourceful, hard working, excellent cooks and bakers and they make wonderful neighbours. I have great respect for them and their heritage. I see them around our city in the thrift stores where I shop, but something has caused them not to trust the rest of us, because when I smile at them I am seldom met with a smile. So sad, I am a very outgoing person and I would love to briefly pass the time of day with them when we meet, but it is not going to happen easily.
    Have a wonderful day!
