Day 27 Weed
Nothing really exciting to say about this as after all it is just a weed, but I like the way the light catches it.

Day 26 Capulí
A short while ago I posted a photo of a capuli flower, this is the fruit that the tree produces, and it changes colour over time to black. They are out early this year as the rains came early.
Day 25 Bees
As you know we have some hives in our garden and after some recent rain one of our hives separated and we were able to catch them again as they stayed close by and regrouped in the corner of our property so we got out one of our empty boxes and put them inside.
Day 24 – Butterfly
This was a great opportunity today, as the butterfly was sitting quietly on the window of our sun room, I waited for a while as I was rather busy and when I finished up what I was doing I got the camera out and put on the macro lens and the butterfly was still sitting there minding it´s own business. I got off a few shots and decided this was the best.
Day 23 – I took a photo of this flower a while back, there were three buds, click on this link to see the photo. Here we have the next stage, the petals are coming out of the bud. This is the closest bud from the previous photo.
Day 22 Just a cute little flower.
We have some of these flowers out front, they are very cute and make great macros. They are some of my favourite flowers that we have.

Day 21 Hard Work.
All the wonderful flowers don´t just pop up on their own, I wish, but there is loads of hard work involved and hubby does most of it. Here we see him cleaning out around the base of one of our peach trees we planted a few months ago, it is still a little tree and requires some care
I am always saying from my garden, not of my garden and today’s photo is a view from my garden. The Cotopaxi Volcano in the Cotopaxi Province, Ecuador. This volcano is a stratovolcano with a height of 5,897 m (19,347 ft). Last August 2015 it woke up again and this photo was taken yesterday when it decided to huff and puff a little. Taken from my front garden.
Day 19 Honeybee
We have three hives full of honey bees so there are all over our garden, they love the dandilions they are a favourite and we have loads of them.

Here we have a pine cone in our front garden which we are training to be a Christmas Tree, this is a detail of one of the branches.

Day 17 – Ring
A little change today and rather than nature photo of a flower, bud or leaf I have chosen to share a photo of something man made. A ring to attach a padlock to close the gate.
These are possibly the most annoying seeds ever, they stick to everything, including the dogs, they are ugly plants, skeleton like and we have them all over, they grow so quickly we have trouble controlling them.
This is a blossom from a Capulí, this is a local tree, called Wild Black Cherry in english, see the wikipedia link here. It is very common here in Ecuador and we have loads of them in and around the garden. It has blossomed very early this year so we expect the fruit to be early also.

Have you been following the progress with the unidentified bud? The first of the flowers came out today, so cool, there are still more of the buds to flower so over the next few days there will be more updates.

Day 10 – Still going strong, there are so many things in my garden that you really don´t even see, you need to “look” in a different way to see them. I didn´t even see this ladybird when my husband and I were wondering around, he saw it, so thanks to him I was able to take this one.

Remember a couple of day ago, the first photo of the bud, well, here we have the second in the series, you can see it has opened up a bit and we still don´t know what the name of the flower is, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Eucalyptus trees are sort of a plague here in Ecuador, they grow really fast, require next to no water or care and strip all the healthy nutrients from the soil around them, but they smell really nice and we use them for a fence in the front garden along the road. This trunk is growing in another part of the garden, along the fence with one of our neighbours and is stripping it´s bark and there are cute curly bits.
