My neighbour's garden has some rare and unusual plants.
Artistic touches are evident throughout her garden.
Her choice of colourful flowers make a bold statement and are often dramatic.
Our poppies are still putting on a spectacular show.
I am saving the seeds for next years blooms.
My neighbour across the street and I were out chatting and watched a doe
as she grabbed one of the seed pods and swallowed it right before our eyes!
The urban deer are a hot topic of conversation among the gardeneres at this end of the block...
(5 deer reside in the back yard of a home nearby)
Mom and her fawns are enjoying our front garden "salad bar" so much this year!
No amount of Bobex is stopping their munching.

Love the form and fragrance of this beautiful David Austin Rose.
Hubby and I are celebrating our 46th anniversary.
We were married young and were high school sweethearts.
So we have actually been together as a couple for 50 years!
Our friends treated us to a lovely dinner on their porch the other evening.
Look at the rhubarb pie!
Hope that you are staying safe,

It is quite unsettling hearing the double digit daily cases in BC.
