So nice to see the colors come back for everyone! Jubilada, I especially like that Nigella of yours. It's so magical-looking.

I had two Fountain Gauras last year and only one came back. I really enjoy the gracefulness of its blossoms.

Wonderful capture of the blue heron in graceful flight.

My Peppermint Hydrangeas are a surprise every day. When I put them out last year, I tested the soil and amended it to ensure pink results. Side by side they stand, one with light green leaves and one with dark ones. One started out decidedly pink and is now going lavender with blue centers (this photo), while the other one has started out very blue but is beginning to develop some purple tones.

Here's an Anole. I darkened the background here and also used my favorite effect from Photoshop Elements, a dry brush filter.

Gardenpom, I'd never have thought of that! You're right. It's a strange song if you really listen to the lyrics. Tin Man, and yes, it's by America.

You're absolutely right. I liked America and their music. Got 'em mixed up! Thanks for the correction.

I remember "The Tin Man" specifically, and couldn't put that lyric in there ... which prompted a little research!

This Eastern Tiger Swallowtail was quite tattered from the journey, but was not lacking in grace or beauty.

Rjudd, those Clerodendrum musical notes sure are interesting and pretty little things! Do they have a sweet scent?

Lovely butterfly, Miss Mary.

The musical notes look like they would have a scent but they don't.
They only open one night then fall away. This is what they look like during the day before opening
