263/365: yucca filamentosa
There are a few plants that flourish in our north country winters that would appear to have NO BUSINESS living here. The yucca is one.
Somehow, growing this plant in my garden makes me feel like there’s something
a little exotic going on right in my own front yard. I’m happy to host this denizen of the desert and other southern climes and truly impressed with its survival skills.

261/365: annabelle hydrangea turning pink
I guess it’s her little secret as to
why, but something has our old-fashioned white hydrangea blushing positively pink…

I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.

This is the time of year when my herbs are abundant and I begin to panic about the days I left to enjoy them. Fresh herbs are one of the few things that make me pine for life in a warmer climate. They make me feel rich. Time to get cooking, I guess…there’s a frost warning up north tonight !?!?!?!?!

243/365: lone daisy
I have long been a fan of the simple beauty of the daisy. Sometimes it’s harder to see the everyday flowers. Isn’t that true of anything we love once it becomes familiar? It takes something to shake us out of our same-old eyes to realize all over again how stunning it really is.

234/365: bells of ireland
Call it the luck o’ the Irish.
One of my favorite green flowers appeared in our garden
quite by surprise. I know I didn’t plant it and I almost pulled it, thinking it was a week. Something made me wait and see.
I love to see my less-than-fastidious gardening practices rewarded! With a little time, space, and sunlight, who knows what might blossom?

Oh purple loosestrife! Why do you tempt me with your beauty? We both know that you don’t belong here. And you never will.

Fortunately Brad and I were having a bird ID dispute on the deck. We just put up the feeder and, while we were at the cabin, the birds discovered it.
Brad claimed they were juncos. I didn’t believe him so I took a
really bad picture on his phone. It turned out to be the only shot of the day.
You will notice that there are NO birds in THIS picture. But I’m still happy. I salvaged
something and managed to NOT miss a day taking a picture. In spite of myself.

A scene from our property line. I am delighted to say that this used to be a bare chainlink fence.
