Leftovers -Around The Yard

Some leftover shots from around the yard.



My favourite "wildflower". 
Most people think of dandelions as weeds, 
but I think of them as flower food for bees.


A pretty in pink bachelor button.


Nirbert, one of my garden gnomes got a new paint job!


You are never too old to blow bubbles...then take a picture of one!


A Blue Jay, keeping an eye on...


The yard guard, my dog Merfy.

  1. Loving your yard shots.
    I am also really, really looking forward to when it is cold enough here to freeze bubbles. My inner child is alive and well. She is getting a tad impatient though.

  2. More gardeners should adopt your attitude towards dandelions, Karen, and cease viewing them as a pestilence from hell to be destroyed on sight.

  8. I don't mind dandelions. As long as they are on my neighbours' lawn and not my own.
