Blue False Indigo

I love this plant from the college gardens. 
 I tried capturing it when I had the little point and shoot,
 but the flowers are too small for it.
 So glad I have my new camera!!

Foxtail Lily

This is such an interesting plant.
 I love the way the blossoms
 climb up the stalk
 as they open.

Rather than showing you each type of iris,
 I am choosing the best of the lot.
 If you want the names, let me know...

The early peonies are in bloom already,
 some at the college,
 and others in my own garden.
 They are so welcome!

The gentian flowers
 at the college gardens
 only lasted a week,
but the colour is worth it!

New Crops

The new crops are springing
 from the soil.

While I was at the Hay Bay Church, I noticed 
 the reflections in the windows facing the water.

Skywatch Friday

We spotted a couple of osprey sitting in a big dead tree, but they were not happy about my getting out of the car to try and capture them.

Hay Bay Church

 The Hay Bay Church is on the shore of the Bay of Quinte.
We stopped and had a look around.
 We couldn't go inside,
 but we could walk all the way around the building
 and ending up at the front again.
There was a small cemetery across the road.

Burdock Leaf

I caught a glimpse of the sun streaming through this burdock leaf, and had to crawl under a spruce tree to capture it.
I love the pattern in the veins of the leaf.

Bleeding Heart

I stopped at the college, and caught up with what's blooming.
 This bleeding heart is the variety Goldheart,
 likely because of the pale colour of the leaves.

Today's Flowers

I stopped at the gardens at the college after work on Thursday,
and I was simply overwhelmed by the light 
 coming through the orange tulips!
