Summer is here, and blooming! Here are a few smiles from my garden. You may use the pics at your convenience!
Perfectly ripe! Nature is as generous as last year, and we have to invite neighbors to gather the fruits!
Ze mighty raspberry patch!
(Yes you may have some, provided you come here!)
An unexpected guest! Last year and the year before, I thought those sticks sprouting from my peonies were weeds (and you know how I deal with weeds...)
The wisteria is no more, but we have some unusual four-legged visitors!!
Never letting his or her guard down. Always on the ready. Cottontails lead difficult lives in this urban environment, what with the cars (Mississauga is the dream city for car dealers) and the wide streets and arteries. They come out veeery early in the morning.
This one was spotted on another street, during my 5h00 early-morning run. Note that the winter spotted fur is shedding, revealing the lighter brown fur. Fortunately, our two huntresses are safely inside the house.
Our two fierce huntresses, Maggie and Minnie, taking a break. (Picture taken on another day.)
And, last but not least, the ultimate proof that summer in upon us… a fiery day-lily (hemerocalle)!
Yes you can!
(…use it as a background picture.)
For you all, I offer those few smiles from my garden. You may use the pics at your convenience!
The pale pink blossoms against the dark red leaves of the exotic Prunus
Two tender pansies already gone
Three luminous daisies in the shadow
…across from the trio of daisies, wisterias bloom. They had waited three years!
Shy blue flowers like a forget-me-not
Peonies in full glory !
Raised arms violet flowers, non identified yet.
The Lupines- and all others plants – do appreciate the garden composter!
