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

The last update on our unidentified flower is here, the 5 buds have opened now and the first to open is looking a little sorry for itself.

From My Garden – Day 12 – Capulí

Day 12

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.

From my garden – Day 5 – Silhouette

This was a difficult one to get, lying flat on my tummy, looking into the setting sun, camera in hand with two adorable (hahaha) dogs running around and jumping on me and the flowers. I know it i not the best of photos, but I like it, I might, I say might, because I also might not, try another one of these in the future.

From My Garden – Day 4 – Geraniums

Day 4 –  So far so good, still enjoying the challenge, just as well as there is still a long way to go. Today I took a photo of some geraniums we have in the garden, these are wild, we have never planted them, never watered them and they are nice and strong. This was a different sort of photo as I used a 70-300 mm lens (rather than a macro) and then cropped until I liked the composition.
