Yard — a word worth a 1000 pictures (#66-71)

Having focused on wild flowers twice, I thought I'd better give cultivated flowers their due. So, here is what's in bloom around the yard right now. (Stay posted because there are at least 2 more that have ready-to-burst buds. I'll be featuring them soon.)

Picture #66: Poppies.

Picture #67: Lily of the Valley. They have a wonderful smell. Just three stems in a vase scents the whole house.

Picture #68: Pansies.

Picture #69: A white, 6-petal flower. Anise?

Picture #70: Pink Petunia with purple centre.

Picture #71: Pink Petunia with white centre and bumblebee!
