Usually I “look at the birds of the air,” but since the flowers in my yard are blooming beautifully, today we’ll “consider the lilies of the field.” I have to confess, I know very little about flower names; I tend to call them “the pretty purple flower” or the “bright yellow flower.” My hubby is the one with the greater gardening expertise. I guess you could say we are a “Birds and Blooms” kind of couple.
Here are ten flowers that currently make me oooh and aaah. I have a feeling more will be making an appearance in the days ahead.
Surely “Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.” (Matthew6:29)

Kathy, your photos — as usual — prove the adage that a picture can be worth a thousand words. 🙂
The neighbors probably think I am a tad crazy when they see me lying in the grass twisting my body into crazy yoga positions to get a better shot. 🙂
Such beauty to behold! Thank you for sharing your awesome photos! Your colors are so vivid! WOW!!!
Thanks. I am having fun expanding beyond birds. 🙂
I can relate! 😊
such beautiful photos! Lovely perennials!
Thanks! This flower picture taking is addictive!
it really is – eh? Like birds 🙂
Kathy, you’ve outdone yourself yet again. You really need to be in that magazine!!!
Well…I’m going to write them and say that you said so! 😉
I hope you’re serious about writing them because you truly should!!
Lovely flowers, wonderful photos! Thanks for sharing!
I am having fun! Thanks for the encouragement. 🙂
Kathy, please ask hubby if #4 – the red stickly looking one is Bee Balm. Thanks!
It is indeed Bee Balm. I asked him the other day since to me it looks like an alien sea creature.
Positively gorgeous!! What a delight! I can see why you are oohing and ahhing! We put in coneflower and black-eyed Suzan’s that I am anxiously awaiting to flower. Unfortunately, the bunnies seem to have a taste for black-eyed Suzan’s and keep nibbling them away, despite hubby spraying them with some form of repellant. 🙂
These are all stunning close-ups. I especially admire the first one from behind.
