Absolutely gorgeous pictures, you get better every day. I hope all is well at your house, say hello for me to the Duke man :-)

Grace said...

Whatever those purple things are - I like them!

Nessa said...

Hi Ann! :)

The first one looks like Marigold. In my country, we call it 'Chicken sh*t flower'... seriously!

Enjoy your weekend!

marie said...

The marigold shot is beautiful! It's one of my favorite flowers.
Your photo confirms why! I love it!

June Zach said...

Great shots again! Have a fantastic weekend!

FishHawk said...

I also have no idea what kind of flower that second pic is of. So, would you tell Grace and I what it is?

Roschelle said...

Love the yellow :)

Philippa said...

Lovely flowers, Ann - they would make great cards! How about quilling a bee to sit on the foxglove photo? Or a butterfly on the yellow ones?

Donna said...

Love marigolds but What is the purple one?? Gorgeous!!
Happy Lazy weekend sweetie!

Duni said...

They're gorgeous. I love it when the garden comes alive :)

Russ said...

Wonderful pictures as usual Ann. I love the flowers in the second picture. There are a lot of flowers in that shape. I just call them all Bell Flowers. I think that might be a man thing.
Have a restful Weekend.

Sharkbytes said...

Love the Foxglove. It's very exotic-looking

Sheri said...

Those flowers are beautiful! I love the purple ones!!! The would be so nice in our yard today for Elyse's purple reception!

Jean said...

Nice flower shots. I love the Foxglove! I'm feeling lazy today.:)

Anna said...

Lovely flower photos.

Thank you for leaving your encourageing words before I was even finished with my Y-post!!

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my Y-post with Yvonne Stark's y-necklaces. She does other thing with beads, not just y-necklaces. She has a cute little beaded bag too.

It is really warm here! It is a little after 8.30 P.M., the sun is still up and it is 83 degrees Farenheit! Went up to 89 degrees Farenheit today!

Have a restful weekend!
Anna

P.S.
Oh wow, Ann, I just saw it on your side bar now!!
Bless you Ann! This really warms the heart!
Thank you for the link under "People who inspire me / Crafty people"!!!!
Thank you for thinking of me!

You have some 'snappy' categories there: I just love 'Paw-pleasing sites'!!!

OXOXOX (=This means a lot of hugs and kisses and EC-credits if you want them!)

Nessa, that is just so funny. I'm going to have to tell everyone that i have chicken sh*t in my yard

fishhawk I sure will, it's called Foxglove. I read that they are supposed to attract hummingbirds

Roschelle me too, bright, sunny and happy

Philippa thanks and that's a great idea. I'll have to try that

Donna I love marigolds also. The purple one is called Foxglove

Duni I do too. and it seems my garden is more alive this year that it was last

Russ, at least that's an easy name to remember.

Sharkbytes it is an exotic looking flower.

Sheri, those would have been perfect for the reception, fit right in with the color scheme

Jean I'm glad I'm not the only one :)

Anna, you are most welcome. The categories on the side are a work in progress. Eventually I'll get all of my most favorite blogs listed.

Very pretty flowers ~ the shots are gorgeous, Ann!

Out on the prairie said...

I like the shadow in your marigold shot,the digitalis is beautiful.One of my favorites, found them wild on Mt. Baker in WA and spent the day shooting different groups.Newest toy that came in the mail is a binder. This required at trip to Hobby Lobby for supplies.Need to take that card away.HA!

Marg said...

Those flowers are gorgeous. Are the second ones, Foxgloves. I have seen pictures of them but have never had any. Hugs to Duke

Ann said...

LDH thank you, the flowers make it easy, they sit so still for me :)

out on the prairie I had looked up the flowers on line and discovered that the name was digitalis. I had no idea. So are you talking like a binder as in to bind books? That sounds like fun. I wish we had a hobby lobby close by. The closets one is about 90 minutes away

Marg yes that's what the second one is, or digitalis as out on the prairie called it.

Ann, your flowers are so refreshing. The foxgloves are gorgeous, great shots.

Ann said...

Poetic shutterbug, thanks, wish I had some more exotic types to photograph like you do :)
