During the walk this morning I saw a very large bird that I have never seen before. After some research, I have an idea what it might be, but if I am right it is VERY EXCITING and so I need to see it again to be sure. I saw it once the street below us and it was gone too fast for me to see properly. But as we turned up the path on to our own street, I saw it again - for several seconds.
So after finding my SD card I took my camera and went for a little walk towards the last place I saw it perch. Alas, I came up with nothing. I will be keeping the camera with me and my eyes peeled though. And perhaps someone else in the neighbourhood will have seen it too.
Coming back though I didn't let my camera go to waste as the garden is coming on. We pulled out the old stump and planted a flowering crab this year, so I took a picture.
The woodsy area is full of bunchberry blossoms.
My weigela is just beginning to bloom. By the end of the weekend it will be FULL of gorgeous pink blossoms. I love how the colour deepens as the blossoms age. When it is in full bloom, there are so many shades of pink!
In the other bed, the larkspur is starting and so is the tradescantia (thank you Michelle for reminding me of the name!).
Now back to work. But it was kinda fun taking a few pics again.
