Garden Sightings


In spite of the rain this last weekend, I did manage to get a walk at the garden squeezed in and I'm very glad I did.  There was lots to see (and photograph) like this gorgeous pink cactus bloom.  Isn't that a beauty?


These tiny baby quail were following along behind their mother but every now and then they would straggle behind.  They are such cute little fuzzy creatures.  Don't you think that one in the middle has awfully big feet?


This cactus created its own bouquet of gorgeous blooms.  What an amazing sight to see all these blooms on one cactus.  There was a lot to enjoy before the rain started.

All your flower photos are stunning, and I especially like the cacti blooms on the various plants.

The cactus blooms are totally spectacular Sharon, what a gorgeous first shot and the baby quails are so sweet, big feet and all :)

The flowers are beautiful but I love the wee quails, Sharon!

The first flower is a standout beauty while the cactus is so special. I live those fuzzy lil ones.

What delicious photos! Wow!

Re your comment on Ocala: The tourney came off without a hitch. It was hot as we didn't start 'til early afternoon but I didn't see any drunks (with a couple of exceptions) and there weren't any problems. It was fun.

I love all three photos, they are so cute and the pink bloom is gorgeous but I think my favourite is the last one because I love your angle!

The cacti blooms certainly stand out. The little ones are cute.

Beautiful blooms and the baby quail are just adorable. I'm sure the middle one will grow into those feet!

Kathy said...

Oh, the wonders and beauties of nature. You've captured some splendid ones here.

The baby quails are too cute. We had a big thunderstorm last night. It kept me up for hours.
