Beware the March flurries
Well, this being Victoria our flurries consist of petals mostly. Let's begin with some crocuses
...and make sharp turn to birdies (the name's Shadow)
...only to switch to insects
...but get back to birdies quickly.
Looks like someone's getting a lecture
Elk Lake, doggies heaven
Petals, as I promised. Soon to be a flurry
Sidney shore, charming as always
with fine dining options. This seagull got an octopus for dinner
while this Heron is still studying the menu, while enjoying seat with a view.
One carefree duck
Wow, that's a lot of birds in this post... Downy woodpecker
Been a while since last crocuses, hasn't it
or cherry blooms
not even speaking of magnolias
or moss explosion
Boar-scarer, always reminds me a fight scene from Kill Bill, Folks from Butchart gardens said this on my Facebook page: "This is called shishi-odoshi (鹿威し) which literally translates as "deer-scarer..." but indeed it is used to scarе wild boar and other animals in Japan. We've never heard it called a deer-scarer in English - always boar-scarer.
Petals! One of the less visited corners of The Butchart Gardens. Red petals fall off at the top of the stream which carries them through the entire Japanese garden. Design of a genius
Let's finish with these two cute messy eaters having a dinner right behind my patio door. Taken with vintage manual lens, through the glass.
