Something Yellow

Many of my flowers are blooming beautifully this year. One thing that I notice some insects is eating the leaves and flowers. Do you have this problem too? Try to get a look...
                     
            I planted this lily last year and thankfully it bloom this year but look at the petals. The other one the petals is eaten slowly.

Very pretty and colorful blooms - they must be a tasty treat to something but they still are gorgeous, Kim.

They are still beautiful flowers. The bugs have been awful this year.

So sorry you are having problems with your flowers this year. Some years are worse than others, it seems, when it comes to insects. Like Lavender Dreamer, I really like the daisy pic!

Luna Miranda said...

i guess you can spray insecticide to keep the insects away.
pretty flowers.

Beautiful!

A little insect damage is nothing to worry about. I'd rather have imperfect blossoms than spray poison in my yard. Your blooms are beautiful.

It is just beautiful, still. I wouldnt spray chemicals to kill the bugs.

Very beautiful flowers and photographs :)

I don't know much about insect damage...I had something eating holes in my vegetable and flower leaves for awhile and it's the first year that happened so I just think that it is a bad year for bugs this summer

Your flowers still look so very pretty though!

I find asking myself that a lot. I see a flower I want to photograph and run over with the camera only to find a chunk out of it or it is not as fresh as I should be. It is disappointing. I am with you on that. Valerie

Lovely flowers. I've noticed bugs nibbling on the leaves of a few of my things, too. Not the blooms, though, but that's mostly because I don't have much blooming thanks to the crazy heat and drought in Colorado.

Found you through Mosaic Monday (my first time linking) and so glad I did! Happy Monday!

Delightful flowers.

Eden said...

They are beautiful! Great shots.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Yes...here too. The insects always play havoc on the beauty...they too like those just like we do. It's all part of the circle of life.

CameraCruise said...

Beautiful shots of your gorgeous flowers.
We have the same problem here with the insects.
My pink peonies smells sweet too. I have 4 peony plants, they didn't bloom last year
and this year they only have 1-2 blooms on each plant.
I also enjoyed your post from the Lavender farm.
Wish you a wonderful summer.

We had a very wet cool spring, Kim, and my flowers did not do well at all..many died. Your flowers look pretty even if the petals are being bitten by something..maybe a caterpillar?
