  1. We had lots of bluebells growing wild on the prairies when I was a kid. Always one of my favourite flowers!

    1. I took these shots in the early morning before the light/sun washed everything out. Glad you liked them Pat!

  3. Bluebells remind me of a Swedish summer meadow, but I don't think they were that deep blue. So pretty, Jim.

    1. Thanks Inger. Maybe since these have been cultivated they are bluer? That must have been stunning to see a whole meadow of these!

    1. We had these growing in another part of the garden and they didn't do much at all. SO we moved them to the 'nursery bed' and they are much happier! Glad you liked them.

    1. This is a beautiful time of year as it gets less HOT and heads towards Fall.
      Yes Vicki, Ron/Sophie have a new look but still using Blogger, just a new format. You should be able to access 'comments' though.....go right to the bottom of post and click on comments and THEN scroll down the 'bar' on the right and presto...comments.

  8. I believe the yellow flowers are horned bladderwort, Jim -- according to my Audubon Wildflower manual. (I'm such a nerd!)

    They are beautiful! xo

    1. They work together eh? The 'Bladderwort' wouldn't grow in the garden....hard to get the 'wild ones' cultivated!!
