An old one: A chimney tree 😁
(I've got another one a tree growing out of the side of an old mill wall, somewhere)

Blooming heather (in our backyard, last year, I think. It was bad light, but the heather bloomed particularly well):

This is a horticulture Rhododendron (Rhododendron sp.) that grows in our front lawn. Wild Rhododendron are not as full of flowers, but the flowers are very vivid pink in color.

Foxglove (Digitalis Purpurea) is one of my favorite flowers. When you drive to the Oregon Coast in the late spring early summer there is huge patches of Foxglove along side the road.

The blackberry plants in the background are distracting but celery looking plant is anything but celery. This is Angelica genuflexa (if I remember my latin correctly that means angle kneeling) it will make your knees bend, it is also called Socrotie's weed or POISON HEMLOCK!!!

I think its a mason bee (not knowing where you are) if they can not find a hidey Hole they will make one if they can find soft enough wood.
Definitely a wasp; Norwegian wasp?

From last August. It's been a bit windy lately. While it's warm outside, despite the gales, it feels colder inside. I've put my quilt back on my bed 🌬☔
I'm waiting for the churchtower flagpole to get blown down; it's a new one, the old one blew down last year 🤭

Strawberry flower (yay, I know the name of something! 😁)
IMG_20200526_212525424~2.jpg

Only just taken it. It's been overcast for most of the day.
My mum's mate gave her the tub of plants, but it was infested with snails and although we got a good crop, last year, most of the strawberries had already been munched by some critter by the time they were ready for picking.

get some coper tape, old lids and some batteries. i don`t suggest using a power supply unless you know what you`re doing because it may kill them.

Originally, they were too tightly packed for doing anything like that and the snails were in the soil anyway (and very tiny and numerous).
Despite the plants being from the other side of the village, the snails may be the descendants of a once snail farm which used to be at the end of our street. It used to be awful to walk past it as there'd be a carpet of snails crunching underfoot.
Although they'd escaped when the property owner moved out, they stayed confined to that area for years, then one year, they seemed to spread out and they're now everywhere.

Today's pics:

I processed all these on my tablet; I even bought a card reader specifically for my tablet and phone. The old war wounds take their toll and the little gizmos are just less painful to use. If the colours and brightnesses as are a bit off, it's just me getting used to the new setup.

A neighbour's thingymajig. They blow about like crazy in the slightest wind.

And finally, Mr Fossil:

I think I found this last year or summat, as I was waiting for a taxi, and put it upon the wall for safekeeping until my return; and then, I totally forgot about it, until the other day, as I waited for another taxi and just happened to spot it 😁

I'm looking for a cost effective means of stabilizing it, if anybody knows. I've already asked about a product on Amazon (a PVA 501 glue), but I got mixed answers.

No close-ups, today. I'm currently backing up all my old photos and whilst reviewing, I came across these oldies, taken on a bridge camera which I came to loathe for inability to focus properly (amongst other irks); buttercups:

moss and mushrooms ect count too! urm... i was going to upload a photo of rosemary flowers but it`s too large X3
I've always been fascinated by carnivorous plants. From the famous 'Venus fly-trap', to those that trap insects (and other critters) inside their bowls/pitchers ('Pitcher plants'). Seems nature could do/is doing some very interesting things with evolution!

Yeah, those 'Thorned weeds from HELL', as I call 'em! I bear scars from the tender touches of those plants, trying to clear foliage from our ranch's fencelines, and throughout the wooded areas.
That is where i got my summer mold allergies from. I to spent my summer as a kid trying to kill and remove them, except in early August when My family always had Blackberry cobbler.

Between the damned black/raspberry infestations, and the g-damned ground/paper wasps/hornets?
I'm seriously reconsidering building me another working flame-thrower! ;-)

The problem with the blackberries is you have got to kill or remove that damn crown and at least 2 feet of root past it or they just come back. My dad burned them off, then mowed the cane stubble. Two years later they where back just as strong and healthy as ever.

I had a black berry issue in my back yard and I dug the crowns and attempted to pull all of the roots I saw up. I am still pulling starts out.
