abc - I

A-Z Photo Challenge - I

i've been hardpressed for things to shoot lately and have resorted to exploring my back yard....trying not to think what my neighbors must think as i go along taking pictures of our shubbery and trees.  lol  but...i have always been fascinated with getting up close and personal with insects....as long as the critters aren't in my house or on me....they come in such a variety of shapes, sizes and colors.

                       where flowers played Host to butterflies and bees

Hole with a view...as seen from the water garden pavilion, which is Home to several Heron water fountains


now Hubby, who is no Horticulturist, says this isn't Honeysuckle...but it must be in the same family...don't ya think??  i think the strange bee agrees.


ok...now on to other things....this Hot air balloon looks Happy to me, wouldn't you agree?


and saving the best for last.....H is for Happy for the birth of my new grandson on the 6th of this month....
