1. J is for Junco
The dark-eyed Junco is a very common visitor to my garden all winter. This is a male, with its very dark head.
2. 1 p.m.
This heart-shaped clock was a gift a few years ago, and pointed its way to 1:00 p.m.!
Here's a large machine digging up my front lawn while a group of workers measured and dug down with shovels to locate the natural gas pipeline. The new neighbour across the street was changing her wood burning fireplace to a natural gas one, and they needed to join up the line under the road.
I have chosen an Arbutus tree with its interesting colours and textures set against a beautiful blue sky background, taken on my walk along the trails. The Arbutus tree is Canada's only native broad-leafed evergreen tree, and usually resides not farther than 8 km from the pounding waves of the Pacific ocean.
5. A corner
On the same trail, a dog had enjoyed a dip in a pool over the bank on the left side, and was thinking about catching up with his walking companion just disappearing from view.
This is a basket filled with hats made by a neighbour.
Well, this is a project I put together just for this category. I had some pressed flowers that I photographed, and photoshopped them into a stamp! Introducing the Pressed Flower Fairy Stamp :)
This one made me laugh. If you saw my previous post with a Bald Eagle photo or two ~ well, of course I took many photos of it, and in one of them it obligingly looked down ~
Okay, sorry, I didn't mean to laugh...the next shot looks like I'm getting the evil eagle eye! Click to enlarge to see what I mean.
When I visited the estuary the last time, hundreds of gulls lined the shoreline, and here is a just a small section of them crowded together.
Back to nature, 'where the river meets the sea', three Trumpeter Swans were readying for take off...
Fruit in the form of berries shimmering on red stalks in the sunshine ~
The first photo shows the steam evaporating from the roof across the street as the temperature rises ~
and the next photo is of an interesting looking roof line of a building I noticed near the marina. Also visible is the sea fog we experienced for quite a few days.
Unfortunately, no more blue sky days recently, but a lot of fog...today rain came to wash the fog away!
