It was a grey day here in Northern WI, but I got some sunny shots yesterday! And there were some that I was really pleased with.
It was a bit of a down day for me. I packed a LOT of living into these last several days- from finishing up school, to traveling north to Lake Superior, to cleaning and working out and walking and biking and gardening. And today, I was a bit uninspired. And the weather didn't help any. I was actually expecting it to be a bit brighter in the morning and was a little let down when it was rainy. I did manage to get in a bike ride though! So, I expect to regroup for tomorrow and push on with it all. In the meantime, I decided that, instead of zoning out in front of the tv, I would post these pix.
First up, one of my bees happened to be visiting the daylily (first one open) that I was photographing. It was a real happy accident to get that flying bee, and then I snapped several as he was happily gathering pollen. You will notice how lovely yesterday was in these photos.

As I went through looking for some of the new blossoms in the flower gardens, I noticed that most of them are mostly purple/blue tones- very pretty! I knew that it wasn't the best to be shooting pix in this harsh lighting but I love the brightness, and that seems to be how I roll.
|Iris-one of my "fancier" ones. Naturally the colorful ones are pathetic growers. Lol- next to it is nepata: catmint|
|Perennial bachelor button- centauria montana|
|Perennial geranium sanguineum|

|Another purple iris opening- not my favorite one, but of course this one gives me tons of blooms.|
|Another color of perennial geranium-might be Geranium sanguineum “Max Frei”|
So after a busy day of gardening and other stuff, we went for an impromptu ride to escape the mosquitos and ended up down at the park in Fifield.

It was such a pretty moment in time! A beautiful end to the day. I am hoping to regain my mojo tomorrow and feel like getting things accomplished, as it did not happen today. I need to have my occasional days to regroup and re-energize. There are a lot of things coming up in the few short months of summer.
Until next time, be a joy giver and get yourself a good night's sleep!
