Nasturtiums, rich in colour,
grows fast, pollinators for
bees and butterflies, and
an unfussy plant. 

I planted 4 types of nasturtium seeds
 this year and I'm please with the results.

I planted them in terracotta pots the middle of May.

Jewel Mix,
Climbing Vine
Fordhook Favorites and
Empress of India.

I put the pots outside the last week of June.

They started to flower the middle of July.
The bees love them.

2 new colours

After The Rain

We had rain today.
A much needed rain.
It's been very dry here.
The grass has turned brown.

This evening I went outside with 
my camera, and took some pics.
I love the sweet smell after a rain.

Orange Day Lilies

Welcome to the Jungle.


Is he earning his keep,
scaring away the deer?



I have a large variety of Nasturtium 
colours this year.
I've never seen this one before. 

Aphids are eating the
 nasturtiums flowers,
on one plant.
I sprayed with dish detergent and water,
hoping to get rid of the problem.

Another new colour.

The backyard.
I have deer coming to eat the apples
and new growth on the trees.
I put a flashing light in the birdcage hanging.
Maybe this will stop them?
Or slow them down?
Probably not......

This pretty Poppy is from seeds, 
 from the Royal Canadian Legion.
 I planted them a few years ago, and 
each year I have a few flowers that return.


Egyptian Star

A good year for ferns.
