Blossoms on the block

Sometimes the best walks you can have are on one's own block. Our block is about 1.25 acres - so a little bit of room to ramble. I did just that on Monday and discovered some amazing little flowers around the house - not even any need to go down the back.

One of my favourites of course is a flower with a heavily laden bee - talk about head down and backside up.

Others are productive - herbs and other foods.

One of my favourite herb flowers is the very, very small bouquets of flowers on the Yarrow.
