Ending this season with a very fancy spider.
Second year of the gladiolas.
A bee on the lavender that everyone said wouldn’t make it.
A tiny spider friend.
And just in case we forgot what a Calendula looks like in bloom.
Another Calendula making seeds.
Calendula has such strange seeds.
I wasn’t sure the jasmine would bloom. It smells so nice!
The Velvet Queen has arrived!
A tiny bee on a tiny calendula.
Foggy afternoons are so sacred.
The phlox looking fabulous.
Warak Enab. Stuffed Grape Leaves.
Awww the Sequoia is getting bark!
Lucy is finally enjoying her orthopedic bed. (And Veles still thinks the biggest bed is for him, the smallest animal).
My first try at veganising Sheikh El Mahshi. A Lebanese
Another Sailor Shikiori pen. I’m really a fan!
Veles looking very nice in his environment.
Strawberries are still coming up.
White rabbits and a yellow rose.
My sequoia is getting so big!
A happy patch of Shasta Daisies.
Some Hebe flowers are still left, but most have faded. It’s almost Lughnasadh after all.
Hydrangeas looking beautiful!
Oh the summer sun amongst all the trees. So lovely.
A little 5 minute sketch of the jar with the waterlily in it. I should sketch more.
The daisies reach towards the sun.
A fuzzy little bee butt hanging around the hosta flowers.
Starting off the season with another crab spider photo. I love to see how webless spiders live their lives. Love the drama of the second spider’s legs behind the petals of the flower. A real family event.
