It’s time look back through the photo archives and find five things in the garden that start with F.
The flowers and foliage include (from top left across) four o’clocks, fuchsia, feverfew, foxglove, and ferns. The ferns were a new addition a couple of years ago and they are growing well in the front shade garden.
Feathered friends include finches (both purple and gold), the flycatcher and flickers.
The fairies aren’t to be left out. Every garden deserves some whimsy and the fairy doors are set up in the farmyard garden. I’ve got plans for making a new fairy door this year and I’ve been planning it out this winter.
Frogs are found hopping around from the run off stream. I found this photo taken in 2002, which had to be scanned, while searching through old photos for something else. A frog on a frog! See who else likes to sit on a frog.
One of my favourite areas of the garden is the fence garden, which has gone through so many changes over the years. This is one of my favourite photos from 2014. It looks different now as a shed was put up just behind it and the bottle tree was added to one post.
I’m adding to my personal alphabet with the letter F for this week.
F – friendly, frugal, fastidious, forthright,
Friday’s Hunt follows the alphabet, includes your favourite, and the third thing is always different. I must admit I don’t always do the third challenge unless it fits with the letter of the week. The flycatcher has some negative space for this week. It is sitting on top of one of the feeder poles and he background is a bit muted so the bird stands out. This wasn’t done intentionally it was one of those things that you notice after you put the photos on the computer.
