My son had planted some of his usual veggies, but he couldn't do as much work on it as he liked because of a bad back. But anyway, we got to eat a few of his veggies--a large big purple eggplant, some yellow cherry tomatoes, an orange pepper, cucumber and green chillies. He has a blackberry bush and so my grandkids and I picked blackberries too.
I got to see a skunk in the neighbourhood--at dusk, my usual walk time--hares/rabbits a-plenty, with tiny babies too and I even got to see a possum. I saw my first chipmunk, which is exactly what our regular squirrels here are like. The North American squirrel type we have only in our forests.
I spied a cardinal, who came two days in a row, to sit on some wires going over the back garden. I saw what I was pretty sure was a bird of prey, but I could not identify it. In the lake, in the park near the house, there was a huge group of ducks and I also got to see a heron and of course plenty of gulls, swooping low to catch fish.
All in all it was beautiful. But with no SLR camera, and only my iphone 4, I did not get any good pictures. I saw recently that one can get an SLR lens to fit over a phone lens at a much cheaper price. May be I should try to get one of those.
