Its sunny and hot this afternoon, why don't you come for a little walk around my backyard with me?
Nasturtiums always make me smile, year after year. These flowers really mean summer to me;
Staghorn Sumac may have strange and uninteresting flowers, but its leaves turning bright orange in the fall are a real show;
This tree is a little mystery to me, I do not know what it is called. However, I never cease to admire it, from its abundant pink blooms in the spring to its scarlet berries in late summer;
And this is one of the reasons why I have so many birds in my backyard, food for all those little fruit lovers;
And some for me too, like these wild raspberries growing under the cedars;
Apples in my neighbour's yard. These won't be any good to eat, but they make a great splash of colour in the fall, and the flowers were such a treat for the eyes and the nose earlier this year;
Look who I found, hiding under the apple tree!
And this little Blue Jay might be the reason for the cat's presence...
This little guy is a real cutie, I found him hiding under the stock flowers;
And last, but not least, this is my little miracle: lupins that I started from seeds in the spring are giving me late blooms while I did not expect any before next year.
