Sunny Day Walk-about Pictures

After I finished my morning’s yard work, I decided to take a little walk around the property since it was such a lovely sunny day.   With camera in hand, I got up close and personal to some of the flora and fauna living here too:

I was inspired by the apple blossoms and wild Trilliums right outside my front door.

There seemed to be lots of life right in my grass, struggling for a place in the sun….

Also out front, I had a beautiful crop of dandelions!  My ‘birthday rock’ (aka huge boulder) has amazing lichens growing all over especially on the north side.

I made my way out back to the pond to see my Bullfrog friend sunning himself on his favourite rock at the edge of the pond.

I noticed the my lawn swing has many lichens growing on it….. probably a sign that I don’t sit and rest on it as often as I should.

And there are loads of Wild Violets growing everywhere in shades of purple or white.

The old cement Wizard is still watching over my shade garden.     Meanwhile, the old water pump sits in the garden out front.
