Photo(s) of the Day: Beauty from the Back Yard

These boys and girls are hiding in a newly-planted cyprus tree in the back yard.
Little is prettier than a bleeding heart (my own "liberal plant").
This is a new laurel bush of a type I don't quite recall, but it's damn purty.
My first pink dogwood blossom.
Tomatoes by July 15. Bet your butt.
When I grow up, I want to be a (thornless) blackberry.
Planted these to help hide my neighbor's metal fence. They're prettier.
Ground cover is best with blue flowers dotting it.
Red bell peppers grown from seeds I salvaged from some beauties.
I often tell young photographers that they don't have to go far to find good photo possibilities. These pictures were taken a few minutes ago in my back yard with available sunlight (it is cloudy, so there aren't any shadows). I love catching this little piece of my space in its various seasons. This year, it's a bird's next; last year a baby rabbit in front of me as I was mowing grass I'd let grow too long (and, no, I didn't hurt the little guy).
