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.
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 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.
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 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
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.

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.
