This is a Brassavola Laelia Cattleya,
usually orchids bloom once a year so be patient,
It also depends on what type of Orchid it is.
Thanks to all who have commented on my bloom!

This rose had a French name that we could never pronounce. We named it after one of our grandaughter, Nicole. One year the deer ate it down to the ground, but we managed to nurse it back to health, although we did loose a couple of canes. Nevertheless, it is still my favorite rose.

Swallowtail on the Sage

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

My hubby, of 2 years, saw this butterfly while he was mowing last summer. He called for me to come out and identify it, as he is new to the "butterfly thing". He is very excited now to learn all about gardening, especially watching for butterflies.

Giant swallowtail

You have a great photo of the giant swallowtail butterfly. They do not always sit still well for a photo. Great job!
Keep looking and encouraging him to also. Perhaps you can find the caterpillar this summer!
If you want more information on this beautiful large swallowtail see below.

Butterflies

Butterflies! We have a pair in our garden each year. Last year I think we had about 6 small yellow ones that play among the flowers in a synchronized manner. Very beautiful to watch among the blooms and even in the grass.

I got these lilies from Huntsville Ontario on a lily farm.
The first thing I thought to myself was this, you can not grow anything! Well I did

TWIN TULIPS

I have never seen twin tulips, until yesterday as I was wandering in the garden. I planted the bulbs last fall (2007). I wonder if they will always bloom like this. Interesting.

About the iris.
by: Anonymous

Hi, I have to admit I took this shot last summer. Up here in northern BC, things are a little slow in taking off this year. This flower
I also find these beautiful spiders white in color, hiding on white flowers.

Nice Shot!
by: Ferne

Nice shot Jeanine! I'm with Moni...can we borrow your spider?
I too was a bit surprised to see your flowers this much ahead , especially of my Okanagan location. I guess that coastal B.C. climate still counts even that far north. My first Iris are are just budding and it will be a bit even a bit longer before I see a lily.

I love
by: Linda B

that the spider is the same color as the flower.
Very interesting. LB

Macro
by: Bryan

Hi, I like this photo and well taken but many photographs of this nature i feel need Macro, so you can actually see what is happening. Maybe I am to morbid.

Crab spider
by: Moni

Great photo of that spider in action. I have a few flies I would like him to have for lunch!
Is that iris bloom from this year already?

too small for koi
by: Aurora

Goldfish and Koi need 25 to 35 gallons of water per fish - if that pond is as small as it looks, then that is as bad as jamming 3 hens per battery cage on egg laying farms or overcrowding stock yards. Goldfish and koi are highly intelligent and can be trained to do all kinds or things such as 5 synchronized swimmers following hand signals [youtube] playing soccer and running agility courses.

Eyeing up the prey!

Nothing like a dragon.

Hi, I am absolutely in love with Macro, as it is something we don't normally see with the human eye, thats what makes it so mysterious, especially in Insects.
