Five minute expedition

We've had a busy day, driving back and forth, hauling stuff around, unpacking, shopping ... barely time for a quick walk to the corner and back. But even in that nibble, Strathcona doesn't disappoint.

The colours are vivid:


Purple clematis and a greenish-white hydrangea.


Shining white miniatures along the sidewalk.


Cherries, not quite ripe.


Unidentified flower head, with ant.


And the decor surprising:


Front porch pets.


The people front door is just to the left. Wasps enter on the right. Good neighbours.

  1. The yellow flower head is Common Yarrow (Achillea millefolium). Good macro shot!

  2. Thanks, Jan. I thought it might be yarrow, but I forgot to take a photo of the whole plant to confirm it.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
