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

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.


From My Garden – Day 23 – Purple

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.
