Saturday Random Photos

Someone has been visiting my garden and nibbling on my flowers and vegetables.

I have been keeping an eye on it and sure enough Saturday morning he visited again, and this time eating my marigold flowers.  He saw me and was trying to hide behind the flower bush.

The chipmunk was there also, Bo said that he was the one responsible for stuffing the furs into the bird house. When I saw him my light meter was off since I was shooting in Manual mode and it came out too dark.  I had a little help from Photoshop and the photo came out decent but still some digital noise. So the rabbit and the chipmunk live in my garden.

My backyard is a busy gathering place for birds also, this Robin was perching on a flower pot.

It’s a typical Saturday at my dad’s house.  I can’t wait till our next camping trip and we are counting down the day.

My dad’s Asian corns are getting taller, pretty soon I won’t be able to see Lee sitting on the other side of the backyard.

The weather was in the 80s and perfect weather for a cookout.

My sister has to help the Snow Peas climb the teepee trellis at the beginning and now they can help themselves.

Beans and Snow Peas

Long string beans

Cucumber plants

The Thai eggplants were big enough to plant, I still have yet to find a place to plant mine.  My sister gave the young plants to me last week and there’s no more room in my planting beds. I do have to move some of the plants around.

Cherry tomato plants

I never knew what they look like after the white flowers disappeared.

I bet you can clip this off and plant the bulbs in the ground for a new spring onion plant.

The Kaffir Lime tree grows new leaves in the Spring.

The Pomegranate tree produces many flowers this year, but so far I have not seen a fruit.

It is Spring cleaning at my dad’s house, Bo helped my dad pressure wash the storage shed.

The white fence has mildew over time.

And the wooden bench.

Don’t ask me what’s Lee doing, I guess a karate move or something.

All photos were taken with Canon T2i, and EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens.

    • seeharhed, Bo works for food. 🙂 The pressure washer is a good investment, I was surprised to see how well it cleaned our dirty deck, now only if someone would water seal it for me. 🙂

  1. It looks so lovely here in the garden. At last we have nice warm temperatures here now – and I love and enjoy beeing outside all the day….

    • Thanks Truels, things are growing nicely in my dad’s garden. I hope you will post pictures of your garden, I’m sure your plants are still very young.

  2. Such cute garden visitors! Good thing you have plenty to share. 🙂

    As for the pomegranate, I’m starting to wonder if it’s just the flowering kind. Or maybe it needs another tree. It seem some trees can self pollinate but with 2 or more the chances are better.

    • Hi cn, I’m glad that he is not a big eater. My dad has 2 pomegranate trees planted near each other and both have flowers only. It’s kind of strange that there’s no fruit and the big tree is over 5 year old now.

  3. It’s nice to see everyone helping out to make your dad’s place shine. (It makes my mouth water to imagine the feast Bo enjoyed after all that work.)
