Bloomin Tuesday

Today is Blooming Tuesday at Mrs. Green Thumb Jean's blog.

A few flowers that are bloomin in my yard today...

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of an odd sort of plant growing in my flower bed...one that I never planted. I asked for some help ID'ing it....well I guess no one knew what it was and I still don't either ,but take a look at the flowers that this weird plant made. They are absolutely gorgeous and there are many of them on each stem. Anyone have a clue now?

Now Im asking for a little more help- this little fellow was on my deck today
and I really
dont know what he is...do you?

Oh, I wish I could help you ID the plant - it is very pretty. Is it growing in the shade or the sun?

As for the little critter - sorry, it looks like a type of beetle - and I can't believe he's harmless, but who knows? If I see something like him when I'm hunting down the strange critter you commented about on my site - I'll let you know!

Beautiful blooms! Sorry I can't help you with the flowers or the bug. Thanks for joining the fun today! Jean

I'll email the pix of the plant you can't identify. She is the one who owns the garden at the store, maybe she would know.

Susan, what beautiful flowers you have!

A friend just gave me some of her Shasta Daisies! Got to get them planted.

Take a look at this bug guide, see if you can find that critter. http://bugguide.net/node/view/60

Could you take a picture that's a bit further away? Can't say it will help, but it might give me a better idea.

As for the beetle...I have no idea!!

Love your blooms...thanks for sharing them!

Your flowers and the pictures you've taken of them are beautiful. I think the flower you've ask for help in identifying is a wild lily. Sorry, I can't help with the bug.

No idea what the little beetle or the plant. The beetle is sure cuter than the ones hanging out in my backyard!
