Nice pictures Keith!

The one of the mountains makes me want to take another trip out west this summer. Idaho is calling me.

Quite a difference in the garden when I arrived here from when I left...this hosta is well up along with the elephant ears behind it.

Last year there were some caterpillars on one of the Garry oak trees. This year, there were more but also half a dozen branches on one of the cherry trees was loaded with them.

A nice fancy tulip, narcissus by the arbutus tree and a maple tree in dappled sunlight.

Something that you will rarely see on the island here, freshly mowed grass! This is out in front of our place, not even our land, but I look after it anyway.

Here's the big rhodo coming out, an artichoke, a geranium in the greenhouse which has managed to survive without any water for a month or so and a weed tree that I have no idea what the name is. But it looks pretty.

The Gingko tree is just starting to leaf out, two maples by the potting shed, another rhodo in full bloom, and some bluebells and tulips around one of the small cedar trees.

This full moon maple I thought was a goner when I returned from holiday last year. The leaves were dead at the end of August when they should have been turning red. Thankfully, it seems to have survived and it looks quite strong now.

This is the narrow border by the pond, the limited plantings seem to be doing fine.

Then the small garden section with bamboos by the moon viewing hut.

A shot from across the bridge, and it looks like we have our little friend the newt back this year. And he (she?) is sharing the pond with a frog.

We had a pretty nice day a couple of days ago with some wind. The eagles like to cruise around up there when it gets like that. They make big circles and manage to get higher and higher without having to flap their wings hardly at all.
