Default Garden flowers bathing in sunlight

Went out the other day scouting the garden yet another time.
The weather was crazy. It felt like July haha

We'll start off with a Pansy and the lovely Daisies. Wonderful little flowers those are!
We also have a bonus spotting of a Wood Anemone from the back, and why from the back?
You'll see..

Here is the Wood Anemone. Why it's pink, goes beyond me. I got a big patch of them right outside my garden, covering 12-15 meters across and there's like 10 or 12 single flowers which is pink on the back, white on the front.
There is even the pinksided right next to white ones. It's a mystery to me.

Up next are Forget-Me-Not's and Cowslip (remark about the name later) accompanied by Heartsease

The Cowslip's name is actually derived from the old english word for cow dung; cūslyppe, which if you pull it appart yet another time is almost just like cow in Swedish (Ko / Kossa) especially with some dialects which is derived here on the north-west coast. Slyppe is just an old way of saying 'dropping' or another term form 'drop' which of course is the dung itself.

Sorry about the lesson, your here for the picks.

Now we have arrived at the end of this garden tour.
We cannot finish off without introducing the creators behind these extraordinary plants.


Pic #1

First off we have a wasp resting on a leef of rhubarb gaining momentum.
He's tired after this day's work.



Pic #2

Here's a black ant taking care of his dear neighbouring flower, the Hyacinth checking for unwanted houseguests.



Pic #3

A blue butterfly seeing if someone has missed any excessive pollen on this rather outdated Wood Anemone.

I hope you have appreciated this tour of flowers and I hope you like them

Please tell me if you like them or not.
The not liking is almost more appreciated so that I know what I do wrong, hehe

Now, I have 2 other shots from this day, but it's not really related, botanically... It's more of a biological thing... Follow this link to see what I mean.

Acapulco!

Many good close ups. Like the brave croppings. If I under the threat of a rifle barrel (remember NRA) had to choose one it would be the picture of the garden Forgetmenots

Thanks, I try cropping, both in nature and in Lightroom, to emphazise on where the "drama" is... Dont know how I should put it...

Its difficult to know which ones you mean, since I numbered them really dumb haha...

That red cow dung is really nice.. Its usually just yellow so its nice to see red for a change

My Lilliesofthevalley isnt quite there yet unfortunately They'll be a couple of days until they're all fully grown

Take Care
