We’ve had rain storms every few days, which provides a moist climate for mushrooms and moss throughout our gardens. Yet I can still find something as dainty as this decaying leaf.

I love the way flowers look when the flower bud is forming.

  • Hello Terri,

    Love the photo’s of your garden, the garden looks so lovely and green. Wonderful to have the Monarch Butterfly calling your garden home. I am excited to have a Clivea flowering for the first time.

    Happy days.

    • Thanks so much for stopping by, Bev! Things are growing in abundance throughout our gardens. I was so excited to finally find a Monarch caterpillar in our butterfly garden. I’m hoping to plant more milkweed to attract more. Congrats on your Clivea flower! So fun to watch and study our gardens!
