Our garden


From our garden I can see the Sun rise...


It's a place where Creatures lurk.





There are lots of pretty corners:






...and at the end of the long hot days, the sun sets over the river,



and the stars come out one by one.

  2. I thought there was going to be a continuation of this story... And a car full of drunken Samoans ransack a neighbour's house to the sound of Eminem on their horn speakers.

  5. Really lovely photos.

    I was talking with someone just this week about monarch butterflies. The monarchs here (New York) migrate to Mexico each fall. But it's a different batch of butterflies that arrive here each spring. The monarchs were you are don't migrate at all, so say my friend. Anyway, it was sort of strange to see your photo after having that conversation so shortly ago.

    Great shots...especially nice to see the flowers when it's so dreary here in December.
