Day 179

There are some new blooms in my yard, so I had to capture them with my camera.

Variegated hosta – the light purple blooms are a little dull in the photo up against the light brick background.  I need to get some close-ups of the flowers to better show off their beautiful color.


Mimosa – we have a gorgeous mimosa tree in the yard.  The pink fingerlike petals of the flowers are a big hummingbird draw.  We usually have a handful of birds fluttering around when the tree is in bloom.  Here’s a view up into the canopy.
