Cold and foggy all day, but these rowers were out on the lake this morning in spite of the weather.

Botanical Gardens

I went to the Botanical Gardens this afternoon, photos taken with my friend's Canon Rebel XT and my 100mm macro lens.

Quidi Vidi

I did another geocache today, I had to walk up the hill behind Quidi Vidi Village.......great views from up there, I will have to go back some day and shoot during the good light. My camera will be away for repairs for 4 to 6 weeks so a very generous friend loaned me his Canon XT that I can use during the weeks since he only uses it on the weekends. Thanks Wade!

We went geocaching today and I saw these wildflowers near a walking trail. I've never seen them before. I looked them up on the internet and I think they are Star of Bethlehem.

Here are some of the flowers and plants I bought to go in my flower boxes. I did not plant them today because it rained a lot.

I went to a nursery today and bought some flowers to plant in my planter boxes. Of course I had to take photos of the flowers in the greenhouses, I took lots so I made a little slideshow of them.

I walked around Kent's Pond this afternoon (the rain stopped and the fog partially lifted). There are a lot of wildflowers blooming, here is a Pink Lady's Slipper (Cypripedium acaule) and Cracker Berries (Cornus canadensis). I also saw Starflowers, Corn Lilies, Wild Lily of the Valley (in the background of the Lady's Slipper photo), Dandelions, Eyebright, Lady's Smock, Wild Strawberry and Buttercups. Not to mention lots of ducks and ducklings!
Oh, yesterday's photo is the lampshade of my floor lamp but I flipped the photo upside down.

It was raining and foggy and cold all day again today, I had to resort to getting creative inside with my back-up camera. This is the result. Any guesses as to what it is?

Garden & Nest Update

Rainy today, I just took a few pictures in the garden (using my back-up camera, my Canon will have to be sent in for repairs, luckily the extended warranty will cover the cost!). I also checked on the junco nest, there are now 5 eggs in it.

Portugal Cove & A Dead Camera

I took these pictures in Portugal Cove today. As I was taking pictures the camera just died. It sounded like it was still taking photos but there was just a black screen. I tried changing lenses, the battery and the memory card, no luck. I guess after two and a half years and a lot of photos it had enough! Hopefully our extended warranty will take care of it, we will check tomorrow when the store opens. The last photo here is the very last photo I took with my camera. I have a small point and shoot camera I can use so I will still be able to take photos for my photo-a-day blog, but it won't be the same.

On a Sunny Day

Sunny and warm today, here are 2 photos from the garden, cherry tree blossoms and a buttercup.

Junco and Nest

I found a junco's nest in the back garden today. I was pulling weeds when a junco flew up out of the grass. It stayed in the tree chirping at me so I figured there must be a nest nearby. I looked under some dead grass and there was the small nest with two teeny tiny eggs in it. It's very close to where I mowed the grass so it's lucky it survived. I am going to keep an eye on it and maybe get a picture of baby juncos.

Ponds and Fog

A couple of photos taken today. It was sunny but there was fog drifting in, and it wasn't that warm either. The first photo is of Quidi Vidi Lake, the other two were taken at Kenny's Pond.

Cabot Tower in Fog

The fog was very thick today and yesterday (flights at the airport were cancelled) and it's been cold. I was on Signal Hill this morning and you could barely see Cabot Tower.

Juvenile Junco

This baby Junco was on the deck today, all puffed up in the cold rain.

Quidi Vidi Icebergs

This large iceberg is just outside Quidi Vidi Village. The other one is the same iceberg that I've been photographing since May 31st, it's now off Cuckold's Cove, between Signal Hill & Quidi Vidi. There was a bank of fog out there all day, making it pretty cool along the coast but it was hot elsewhere in the city.

Bannerman Park

The tulips and daffodils are blooming all around the city.

Wednesday, June 06, 2007


There was low lying fog this morning when I was on Signal Hill. The iceberg that was near Blackhead on the weekend has moved off Signal Hill. This is the same iceberg from May 31, June 1 & 2.
