One of Flopsy's relatives...

This is a baby Desert Cottontail. The little guy let me get right up close to him. I hope he isn't as trusting with coyotes

Aww, he's cute.

Don't you go near PDAZ's quizzes, young Cottontail, she put me in one once and made me do all sorts of dangerous things!

You must have been pretty close if you could tell it was a guy.

DG -- he looked like a smartypants, so I figured he was a guy...

Piquero -- stupid question I'm sure -- what does the "GR" stand for?

It stands for George Rex.

As opposed to the current ones which have ER, meaning Elizabeth Regina.

I've never seen a blue postbox before! :O Isn't that treason?

I've never seen a blue one either, especially next to another one. And if the stamp machine works it's a miracle, we had one till recently but don't ever remember them putting stamps in it.

Here's an arts and crafts style house from the early 20th century (or copy of) in Banstead

Here is a peony from our back yard. It has since opened but before I could get a picture of it, the blossom wilted. Did I tell you this isn't the best zone for flowers and such?

Here's one of the many pretty flowers I saw on my walk today, possibly a bit the worse for wear after the strong winds we have had.

PDAZ, those little guys believe if they remain still you can't see them. Seems to work with canines. I've seen bunnies freeze in my yard and the two dogs remain blissfully unaware of them. It's like they have a cloaking device.

For all our men and women serving in the Armed Forces and their families, give a good thought to our vets on Memorial Day.

There aren't any Veteran cemetaries near me today, so in honor of our fallen heroes, I'm reposting a photo I took at a Veteran Memorial Cemetary last year. The sprinklers came on while I was taking photos that day.

The National Memorial Cemetery here in Phoenix this morning. John McCain was speaking at the ceremony, and the place was really packed about an hour later.

Very moving images of Memorial Day; those who've died in the service of their country must always be remembered.

A common wild plant around here is the biennial teasel
It has a number of traditional medicinal uses, and once was used to 'tease' wool before spinning. It's also popular for dried flower displays.

More suburban houses. Modern actually refers to a style of architecture rather than an era and began in the late 1890s. British builders have shunned anything remotely modern for around 20 years so this development recently finished in Richmond is incredibly rare since then.

This peony is very happy in it's position in our garden (mostly shade). Lots of flowers on the plant. We have a couple of other peony plants but they don't grow so well as this one.

It's a VERY late spring here in Alberta (we had several inches of snow in the last two weeks). However, SOME things are struggling to bloom, such as the greengage plum trees. Here's a first blossom, along with a shy spider on the left and a bumblebee on the right

Liz that looks like a tulip but what an interesting colour.

Very moving Memorial Day photos. Lest we forget!

Jane, you're on a holiday I've done many times and we can actually get up there in a day and back as well.

Here's another reason I want to return to Hampstead Garden Suburb. Spring is here and all the new gardens have been planted.
