More flowers and critters


I walked around in Margareteberg Park on 12.9.2015.
I found this gorgeous rose.




I love the dark colour of the dahlia buds.
The colour changes as the flower matures.


Crab apples.


On 13.9.2015 I visited Haltiala farm in Helsinki.


There were lots of animals, but


most of them were far from the road.


Some sheep for the children to pet.


A magpie was making a lot of noise in the bushes.


 This hen had dug herself a nice hole to rest in.

I hope you'll enjoy it:

  3. The Highland cattle are so cute, Gunilla, and I like the gradual unfolding of the Dahlia flowers, they seem to speed up at the end. Energetic music!

  4. Ihania kukkia ja hienoja eläinkuvia!
    Täälläkin on joillakin tiloilla ylämaankarjaa. Pitäisi käydä joskus katsomassa pääsisikö niitä kuvaamaan. Ovat ne niin söpön näköisiä. Kuvaajaa tarkasteleva lammas on myös sympaattinen.
    Oikein hyvää viikonloppua!

  21. Fabulous!!! All kinds of wonderful critters and beautiful blossoms. You know something, I think I have never really stopped to look at a dahlia's flower bud. I love the deep rich color! In Colorado we had magpies, but not here in Texas, so this was a special treat.

  34. Beautiful photos, most I like the dark dahlia. Such impressions are soulfood for the wintertime (it came to us very early in this year, but to whom I say that - )

  46. Ofta när skatorna för väsen i skogen utanför tomten här, kan man se en jagande katt på marken - eller om det är katten som är jagad av skatorna.

  51. Hello again Gunilla!:) I overlooked your magpie shot when I first commented, which was a shame as I think they are beautiful birds, and you also captured it well.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lovely cattle and the sheep look very cute too.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
