@Cindi ~> Thank you! You are so very sweet, too kind. :-*
That bush is not a jasmine, as far as I know. It has a lovely scent, but different. I will have to see if I can categorize it. I do seem to have a few varieties of jasmine, or at least ones that smell
of jasmine. Some bushes that bloom late summer, vines that bloom in spring... and this sole specimen that is blooming right now:
It smells very lovely. :-D
Absolutely gorgeous day yesterday, 68°F 100% sunny and calm winds. Forecast is for more typical seasonal weather (read: wet & cold), so I was out turning compost, etc., - had to bring my camera with though (a good excuse to take a brake from the rake & catch my breath!).
Bees were extremely
I had my macro lens, for close-ups, captured a couple of cute single bees. Blonds have more fun?
I made both the above images into large (1920x1200) wallpaper images ~> one
& (one extra)three
The hens were following me around as I turned the compost. I've many terraces and am using a terrace/incline approach to composting the poplar leaf, willow mulch (from downed tree), sheep & chicken manure, etc.,. Sort of using gravity to help along. Giant worms. The hens are eating like queens!
Lastly, a couple shots of some of the back yard.
