Some commenter's asked about my garden so I included a few photos. The Iris is mine as are the daisies. But my garden, which is small, is a wildflower garden in keeping with the forest that surrounds it.
All the rest of the photos are from the forest. I was out hiking yesterday and got so many wildflower photos that I finally cut myself off for this post.
The Dame's Rocket are a their peak now, and their maximum height. They're really something.
Equally colourful are the Devil's Paintbrush, below.
Goat's Beard are a relative of the Dandelion and just as hardy.

I mis- identified the red clover last time confusing it with the wild chives below. Dumb eh? Especially when I pick chives from this patch when my garden runs out.
Absolutely, no wildlife this time and I still have tons of photos left from yesterdays hike. The real problem is that the forest comes on so quickly that it's an effort to get as many species as I can. As well flowers tend to be inaccessible at times and blow in the the wind etc., so they have their own photography problems. Even processing them can be difficult as nature's colours are so vivid or even muted at the same time making it difficult to preserve the real colour.
