I listened to many of you and abstained from pulling up plants I did not know about. It is hard when they are small and not identifiable. This beauty is a moon flower and has a lovely scent, but even better, it blooms throughout the summer and early fall. Nearly the size of a plate, the large plant is covered in these flowers that only open at night. I took this shot on a cloudy, early morn. It is also called Angel's Trumpet.
I don't know what this shrub is, but there are several in the gardens and it is very pretty.
This little garden is off the patio next to my bedroom on the upper level of the back yard. There is about an 8 foot drop down to the lower level of yard and gardens that slopes down to the lake. I have to be careful not to roll down the slope.
Remember those teeny goslings a couple of months ago?
What big babies they have become. Nearly as large as their parents though they still have downy patches. Eat like little goats. Quite friendly and unafraid, though I'd prefer they stay in the lake and not on my lawn.
These small doves come to eat seed on my windowsills and are very friendly. All the wildlife seem to be used to humans, unlike their country counterparts. Many kinds of birds.
And here are my new pretties. The garden center said they were chimes. What? Glass balls? I only bought one, but had to go back the next day for two more. Rule of threes? Odd numbers more pleasing or the symmetry? Can't remember.
Off the subject, but since I always tell you I never learn, well, I passed on this large zeppelin though it pained me to do so. It is only the second one I have ever seen and I have always wanted one. They would only come down 10% and I choked at the price. So, maybe I shouldn't pat myself on the back. I would have bought it for the right price. Sigh.
