This is a shot across the "big pond". There was so much noise from the buzzing dragonflies and from the bullfrogs. It was still very peaceful.
This is by the smaller pond. The hill behind it is almost all pine trees for as far as you can see.
This butterfly is really small (maybe the size of a quarter), but has some very beautiful markings.
We spent about 2 hours walking around and taking pictures. We hope you enjoy our trip as much as we did. Hopefully you got to stay cool during it :)

Wild carrot was introduced and naturalised in North America, where it is often known as "Queen Anne's lace". It is so called because the flower resembles lace; the red flower in the center represents a blood droplet where Queen Anne pricked herself with a needle when she was making the lace. The function of the tiny red flower, coloured by anthocyanin, is to attract insects.
All research was found HERE

Yep it is something for the birthday girl.
Uncle Chris made her a toy box with her name on it. He did a lot of work and he loved every minute of it :) Chris loves to build things especially if he is giving it away as a gift to a family member.
He put special hinges on it so it won't close on Jerzie. He also grooved out the front edge so she won't smash her little fingers.
Jerzie is opening her special gift that Uncle Chris and Aunt Laurie worked on together.
We made her a scrapbook with pictures from the time that she was born until the day of her party.
We know she will enjoy it when she gets older. Believe it or not we remembered (after we had it all wrapped) that we didn't scan any of the pages, so when Mommy and Daddy are done showing it off we will get it back so we can show you the pages. We also made two DVDs one of all of her photo's (1600 and something) and one of all the videos we took of her.

While driving home one evening, Laurie happened to notice that someone had planted these beautiful Lilies at one of our local parks. So yesterday afternoon when the sun was in the right spot, we went to take some pictures.
Have a great Green Thumb Sunday!
