On its way south this past September, this Monarch spent a day hopping between the flowers by the lake. Was very fortunate we could watch its activities while enjoying our early morning coffee and green tea.

This 1942 Ford one ton was a lawn ornament and flower bed at Blue Mountain. Something about this old rusty beater contrasted with vibrant fresh flowers makes you pause for a moment.

A few weeks back we visited Burlington’s Royal Botanical Gardens in hopes of getting spring here sooner (didn’t work!). Their indoor flowers were in full bloom, as seen here, and for a moment it felt like winter was done.

We grow a mix of small and large white and pink roses in our home garden. This particular pink rose is the last for summer and fall this year, and was still on its stem in full bloom when photographed at 7am a couple weeks ago.

Here is a close-up look at a pink and white Gerbera – believe the yellow is pollen. Brought flowers home for my wife and a pair of Gerbera for the kids last fall and took some pictures. One can’t help but smile when looking at the flower, particularly in mid-winter.  A good time of year to share.
