After a very slow start, flowers at our house are starting to bloom. Birds and insects must be happy to see this; I know I am. Click on pictures to enlarge.
While my very tired and very dirty camera and lens are in the shop getting a good cleaning, I thought I would celebrate this fabulously sunny day with a few of my favorite landscapes. Click on pictures to enlarge.
I do some volunteering for The Vegan Society mentoring new vegans. I love doing this! I get to help with recipe ideas, tips for what works and what does not, and provide support in a world that is not always so vegan friendly. I was thrilled when The Vegan Society asked for donations to their “Vegan’s Got Talent” auction. If you like my pictures and want to help out, you can purchase one here: http://www.givinglots.co.uk/event/vegans-got-talent There is also tons of other neat stuff. 🙂 All of the funds go directly to The Vegan Society. Take the vegan pledge.
Sunflowers grow well in many climates, but they are not drought intolerant. I am so glad to see some doing well, though not quite as numerous as last year. Still, the cooler temperatures of late make morning walks pretty amazing. Click on pictures to enlarge.
This handsome guy is a first for our feeders. It is so exciting to have him hanging around for the last few days.
