@ my BF's

Hello, people! Did you miss me? =)

I have a sh*tload of photos for you. Let's start with the flowers, shall we? My BF's grandma has a LOT of flowers in her garden. And she doesn't know/can't remember their names. So I had to find the names of genera myself. I'm not sure about the exact species though.

First of all, here's Anemone which means 'daughter of the wind' in greek (according to Wikipedia).


Another Anemone.


Aster and an unknown flying ''object''. Aster is a greek word for 'star'.


Aster and Callimorpha quadripunctaria. In Slovenia we call this butterfly species 'Striped Teddy Bear' or 'Russian Teddy Bear'. He's got pretty red wings underneath the stiped ones, but didn't want to show himself in full glory.


Dahlia is a national flower of Mexico and it was used by Aztecs for food, ceremonies and decorative purposes.


This Dahlia is definitely my favorite. It's gorgeous.




A bee on a sedum (stonecrops).



Delphinium.


Rudbeckia or Black-eyed Susan is a Native American sacred plant known for it's healing powers.


Clematis.


Which is your favorite?

Thanks for looking!
