Pollen Free Lilies

Two years ago our friends gave us these orange lilies. Then there was three stems. Now there is eight. It will be interesting to see how many next summer.

The Thistle Plant

Guess what ! Yes, the thistle still is, saved by my husband, in the daylily flower bench. I wanted it away but he said let’s wait till it has flowered. I have to say the plant is decorative. And, bye the way, the creepy creeps have disappeared. Yay 🙂 I’m so excited for it to soon blossom in full bloom. Looking forward to then shoot more photos. I added a new category “thistle, thistles”. Makes it easier to look for the posts of it (and maybe later also other thistles)

Bumblebee & Caterpillar

Bumblebee on pink thistleBumblebee on pink thistleI was photographing pink thistles yesterday when a bumblebee landed on one of them. Great color hair. It looks so soft I almost wanted to touch it.

ThistleThistle/BurdockThistle/Burdock/caterpillarI have been looking forward to see what kind and color the flowers of the “huge thistle” in my flower bench will look like. The plant now is about 130 cm tall and the “flowers” look like burdock. I took some photos and was about to leave when I saw this beautiful green/white with a bit of yellow caterpillar. He was eating the leaves and had already had plenty of them.
