From My Garden – Day 33 – Carnation

From My Garden  – Day 33  – Carnation

Carnations are lovely and so easy to grow, at least I think so. We don´t have many of them but we are slowly taking cuttings and growing more. day-33

From My Garden –  Day 32 – Grasshopper

This little grasshopper was relaxing in the sun on a stone, he has great patience and let me get really close up with the camera before hopping away. day-32

Alfalfa is very popular in Ecuador as feed for the cows so there is loads of it.

Such joy when we saw this, ok the tree is so very small still but it is still amazing to see it.

Day 28 – Strawberry Flower
Our strawberry plants are a little sad and sorry for themselves, they don´t die but they don´t prosper either. Hopefully this is a good sign.

From My Garden – Day 27 – Weed

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.

From My Garden – Day 26 – Capulí

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.

From My Garden – Day 25 – Bees

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.

From My Garden – Day 24 – Butterfly

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.

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.

From My Garden – Day 21 – Hard Work

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 careday-21.jpg

From My Garden – Day 19 – Honeybee

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.

From My Garden – Day 16 – Seeds

Day 16

Seeds

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.

These trees are similar to walnuts but local to South America, we have two of them bu they are still very small.
