Derby Roses

From Kathy's bouquet, winner's presentation.
I'm also drying some for her as pot pourri.

Another rainy weekend.

Begonia over-wintered on a windowsill.

Itty Bitty Beetle, about 1/8 th inch, inside a very drenched dutch iris.

Peony beaded with droplets.

The peonies are all weighted down by the light rains we've had this weekend.
