In the Garden and In the Country.....A Walk

On our walk through..we see...
Another gorgeous flower...isn't it wonderful growing in the garden and out in the wild? And of course, some are growing near the little pond and over yonder by the creek. Oooo, there is so much to see and enjoy in the garden and in the country. Isn't it all just beautiful and wonderful??

A small succulent, a rosette. Now you hafta know, that some tiny friends find shelter here with little rosette.
Here we find a lawn nemisis...our friend the dandylion. Look at those large green leaves. I think perhaps sometime, little faeries and elves take shelter with them as well.
And another favorite. Perhaps a home or safe shelter for a sweet faerie or an elf. I love the shapes and colors of our pretty mushrooms. I have a feeling when I do mine, they will be in red.
Here we find a little friend..a small squirrel that has found quite a treat. It's a small branch of acorns..and out little furry friend is contemplating how best to get it home. Perhaps a friend will help him.

Ahhhhhhh, what do we have here growing ????? It's chrysanthemums . They're gorgeous in all their wonderful colors. There are golds, yellows..pinks and reds, rusts..and on and on. All the colors you can think of..these flowers can be that shade or hue.
One of my favorites around water is cattails. I think they're gorgeous with their shades of browns and tans aganist the greens of the stems.... Butterflies, dragonflies live among the reeds and cattails...and so do tiny frogs and big frogs and turtles, and, and....

Look at this..a sweet little pond. Wonder what lives here. Hmmmmm, a butterfly and of course a dragonfly..and let's see what else we can see. Oooooo, look, there are tiny minnows and tadpoles swimming about. And just there was a little frog on his lily pad, he must be shy, cause back in the water he went. Look at all the water flowers..I just love them with their shades of pinks and cremes and pale yellows. They're just beautiful.
