More special gifts of summer

Lovely things in unexpected places. Seed pods are so often overlooked, but have their own unique beauty. These are pods on Kathy's Tree Peonies. They bloom earliest and have the biggest blooms and seedpods. I love the fuzzy pods and the highly polished seeds. Like glass beads on velvet.

Spot made his usual morning visit for a second course, after being fed at his own house.
More of the best of this morning's images. The ants are those really tiny ones, about an eighth inch in size. They are in a hosta flower cluster. These big hostas produce a flower head that just keeps on blooming. I counted 50 buds on one stem, in various stages of devopement, each flower only lasts a day, but they just keep on coming.
