yep ~ I agree with Bamber here ~ getting use to a new camera is one thing ~ to get 'night' shots shows patience [and we all agree, a little luck as well] ~ great images darlin' girl

hubby planted this last year, said it blooms all year, but it just never did, and then one day I was out feeding the birds ...





I have no idea what it is, but I think we need another one lol
Does it have a mocha fragrance? Could be a crossvine (bignonia capriolata).

we have these spreading everywhere

I have them too they are purple Iris’s ~ they are from bulbs I separate mine when they get to clunky
and replant them in other parts of the yard, I’d leave your alone as your yard is more wild I love them
they bloom every May ❤️

we had to do that where they're up against the house, we hope to fill in the area between the cedar fence and the house with 'em 1high5.gif
hubby probably knows what it is, I'll have to ask him

I had a look at these as well [some time back we had something similar in our old garden. They could well be Iris Versicolor ~ a species native to North America, over here the RHS call them either Blue Flag or Boston Iris ~ and the pictures I found look very similar to your photograph darlin' girl. And as our Mnazy has said, they are also known as Purple Iris but have other names as well.

I know the Iris, I just don't know what hubby's bloomer is
I tried asking him the other night, but he was too tired to recall, bless his heart lol

ya'll know this guy! lol



they're saying he probably won't ever recover full use of the ring fingers on both hands, but considering where he was, that's a win in my book!
that kid in the "never finish" tshirt is my cat sitter lol ♥
