I was out about yesterday and saw several different colors of irises. Should have photoed them! There was one very pale pink that looked like a gossamer fairy wing!

Amazing photos! That iris path is stunning!

ericam, Such interesting flowers. Aren't your seasons opposite to ours here in No. America?

Also, are we supposed to be shrinking our photos before posting them?

Just saw these this morning:

The old saying is for June is ..... " June is busting out all over " ..

But we're not allowed to go down one of those routes Embarassed ... So I guess ....... It will have to be related to renewal / new growth in the garden beds Wink

Perhaps something for " budding " photographers to take piccies of.

Lol. No story really. I was just looking at all the beautiful flowers everyone was posting here as their avatars and started wondering what the "Worlds Ugliest Flower" was, so I googled it Very Happy I actually got lot's of results and found the results interesting

Typically, our regional hosts have been coming up with the ideas for the monthly themes. Any ideas?? Very Happy

Haha, when I think of June I think of June bugs, Bugs (or your biggest garden pest) could be the monthly avatar. Although I watched a video Turan posted the other day about how the parasitic wasp has babies with a catapillar and it gave me nightmares so maybe not such a great idea. Earwigs also really disturb me and I saw videos about them too, No

Not sure if I have some sort of genetic mutant in the flower tastes......, but I think that petunias are about the ugliest flower, yet they seem to be about the most popular ones.....

Cheyanna - earwigs are a NO-NO for me. I think I'm more afraid of them than spiders and worms! eerrrr!
I saw a motion picture years ago where an earwig got into a man's head and laid eggs there. When they hatched they ate his brain and drove him crazy! YUGH!
How about beneficial bugs!?

HAha, that's hilarious to know that I am not alone, this is exactly what I think (know) they will do to me. Spiders don't bother me at all, I see them and say hello but an earwig ugh, I am terrified.

Sounds like a Stink Bug. Don't squish them...but if you do you'll know where they get their name from.

If we do bugs, would it be possible for everyone 'in the know' to let us know if it's a beneficial insect or not? I have NO idea what's good and what's not...except for slugs! One of the slugs in my garden, if not all of them, must have had babies coz I'm finding slugs the size of a small drop of water on EVERYthing! Mad How dare they, right???

I found two water droplet sized slugs devouring a cucumber sprout one morning! Hungry little babies. Good idea to have us post whether our avatar bugs are beneficial or not.
