  3. Aivan upeita yksityiskohtia! Pidin eniten kuvasta jossa oli tikapuut. Me käytiin viikko sitten Seurasaaressa syöttämässä oravia ja lintuja. Ne tulee ihan kädestä hakemaan, nin ovat kesyjä ja luottavaisia. Ihanaa viikonloppua!

    You just can't get anywhere near them in UK, they are very nervous.

  13. Nice shot of the polypody fern. We have several species of polypody here. I wonder if any are the same given that we both live in a northern climate.It's tough to identify many ferns from a picture.

  47. The roses are beautiful! The pink ones remind of our Iowa state flower, the wild rose, which grows in ditches along the roads. The squirrel is very cute, especially with the tufts of fur by his/her ears. And the dog is adorable--love his coloring!
