    Nice gallery, Jim! Your colors are brilliant and you make a strong case for people planting native species in their yards! Great flowers = great insects = great birds!

    What beautiful photos, Jim. We planted over a hundred wildflowers between last fall and this spring, and your pictures are inspirational. I really enjoyed the graceful dragonflies, too. Thank you for posting them.
