daisies..and coreopsis..

There is this house with a beautiful garden on my way to the park. I have been stopping to admire this beautiful garden everytime I pass it. The other day, I decided to stop to click some shots and I met the owners. Looks like they spend a lot of time tending to their garden. There were some beautiful daisies and lavender, and awesome coreopsis..these were the pretty yellow flowers all over their yard. There were some pretty daylilies too.

Kudos to you both for tending to such a beautiful garden and thanks for letting me click some pix.!

Solitude is bliss

Sunday, June 15, 2008


Had been to Mystic recently visiting the aquarium and the Seaport grounds. Its really a very interesting place. The aquarium had a sea lion show and then the birds of the outback was an awesome first time experience for me. I had some bird food stuck to an ice cream stick in my hand trying to coerce some birds to eat it. Some refused it outright. This one in the picture though yielded to my request and i had him/her eating right out of my hand, placed the parakeet in front of my cam and had some really great shots!

The seaport grounds were really filled with a lot of historical facts and figures. Took the water shuttle back and forth and enjoyed the view of the tall ships.

The Bronx botanical garden was quite a trip. Only the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden was in bloom and it had beautiful roses. There was a tulip tree..yes a tulip tree. I need to do more research on that.

rain drop on a day lily leaf blade

This is my yard yet again just after the rain. I was surprised to find roses in my yard...sweet surprises and of course the lilacs are blooming just about now and i also have the day lilies starting to bud and i also noticed some begonias. I really love my yard. My mint and Cilantro seem to have caught on and so is my single Daisy.
