Butterflies and Flowers

The butterflies have had a nice summer. The Zinnias are in bloom and they like them as much as they do the Butterflybush.

Amaryllis Belladonna - Naked Ladies

These beautiful flowers come back each year.  They spring up quickly, the blooms open and then they last several days.  This photo is taken about day three after the blooms opened.

Vintage Photo Sunday - Girls With Doll

I have a lot of old snapshots in photo albums from the 1920s.  As near as I can tell, the albums depict the Carroll, Iowa area.

I enjoy looking at how women dressed in those days.  Aren't these dresses cute?  It would be fun to know about the doll too.
