Still getting used to the camera and feel I need to get a proper textbook or something - anyway, if everything was easy I suppose, there'd be no sense of accomplishment.
I don't know if I'm breaking the rules by showing the seeds rather than the flowers - but couldn't resist. These are the seeds of False Solomon's Seal Smilacina racemosa combined with some garden Hosta. It's a great shock of red in the middle of the tired old chartreuse leaves.
And if you break the rules once, might as well just keep on going. Here are the little birdnests that are left over from the Queen Anne's Lace.
