My alphabetical gardening posts have reached Q this week. It has been a challenge to find things that start with this letter, but with a bit of creativity and searching the photo archives I came up with some things.
Our garden is in the Bay of Quinte region. This is a gorgeous part of the province of Ontario with lots of attractions within driving distance. When we aren’t gardening one of our favourite things to do is walk by the bay.
The garden is a quiet place to sit and relax. The Muskoka chairs are set up in a shady part of the garden where we can sit and enjoy the blooms and listen to the birds. It’s a great spot to sit with the camera and capture photos of the birds.
The only plant I have starting with Q is Queen Anne’s Lace. It grows in some of the wild parts towards the back of the garden.
I’m a rock collector and am always looking for interesting ones to add to the garden. Many of them have quartz throughout. Quartz is one of the best known minerals and is found in many rocks.
My search for Q alphabet letters has also been a challenge. I didn’t have anything in the photo archives so went hunting in the garden. I finally settled on two images, not exactly q but if you stretch your imagination a bit you can see the letter.
I’m continuing to add to my personal alphabet with Q.
Q – quiet, quilter,
Little Red is right at home in the garden and very quick at running around and up and down the trees. But every now and then he/she takes a rest. I captured this shot as he/she is at rest on the deck railing one sunny day.
The garden can be a quiet place, with quick moving critters. It is the place to spend some quality time..
