Flower Friday

The wildflower season has been fabulous this year. You can see the beautiful meadow full of yellow flowers and irises that Shyla ran through earlier this summer.

The Blue Flag Irises bloom for a very short time every year, and the insects love them!

Look at the pollen covering the ladybug!

I feel lucky that Shyla and I have places where we can frolic among the Irises every year!
Happy Flower Friday!


  1. Superb macro, the pollen, what a load on their backs. Love Shyla in the field of flowers. Hope the smokey smell and ash deposit has gone by now.

  2. KB, Love the wildflowers! I hope you are staying cool; it's hot down here. Have a great weekend.

  3. What glorious meadows you and the pups have to romp (and roll) in! I'm glad you're getting out and about.
    This morning was the first time since Monday I haven't had a constant headache, so I planned to take Piper to the woods right after morning chores. But even then it was already way too hot and dreadfully humid...our brief, clear-air respite seems to be over for now. Piper doesn't even mind staying inside - in fact, when I invited her out a little while ago to check water buckets with me, she gave me the "thanks but no thanks!" look and dropped her head right back down on her pillow!

  4. Oh my Ladybug, what a gorgeous macro shot!!

  5. Love that photo of the pollen on the ladybug! Nature at work! And you are indeed fortunate that Shyla has such gorgeous meadows to romp through:-)

  6. Your flowers are so beautiful and you always look so pretty romping through the golden blooms, Shyla!

  7. Sometimes the flowers in the wild are so much more beautiful than manicured gardens. Loving all of these photos so much.

  8. love the splash of iris in the yellow wildflowers!

  11. Such wonderful photos! Happy romping sweet Shyla!

  12. What beautiful flowers and we love the bug pictures too.

  13. Oh, those are just beautiful flowers! And LADYBUG! I loves the ladybugs! Mine left, butts I hopes she'll be back. You are indeed one lucky doggie Shyla! I'll dream of runnin' with you in my dreams tonights!
