I am continuing to photograph my kolkwitzia as it reaches full bloom.

On the left hand side of the next shot you can see part of my chimney. The kolkwitzia reaches above it.

The next shot is a wider view of the kolkwitzia and the pecan tree as well as other trees form the green background.

Your kolkwitzia is so pretty! I wish they would grow up here, at least I don't think it does.

I entirely share your enthusiasm towards nature and animals. I don't have mallards but I do have baby chicks, and each of them has a charming name :)). Kisses.

Thanks to everyone for visiting. For anyone who is interested in the difference in the yellow and pink primrose below is some information:

The pink ones scientific name is Oenothera speciosa and the yellow ones scientific name is Oenothera macrocarpa.

Below is a link to more info on the pink ones -

Thanks Carver, This is what I like about having blogger friends. You teach me such a lot. I spent 2 days googling yellow wild flowers, and had no luck.
