A Bug’s Life

Even though the photos in this post were taken at the same time as the previous post I wanted to separate them from each other. After the discovery of which flower the nutlets belonged to, I continued my walk over to the high school field. Behind the school, on the edges of the meadow, I found this bug resting on a leaf.

Beetle

I have scoured my books and the internet but I have not been able to find its name. There are so many different types of insects, millions of them In fact, that I am having no luck finding out what it is.

I did, however, figure out what these little insects were.

Clover Seed Weevils

Clover Seed Weevils

They’re called weevils. And this pair was a little busy making some mini versions of themselves so I moved on.

On one side of the high school track, is a lone tree with silver leaves. There are more trees like it on the other side of the track but this one sits alone amidst some apple trees.

Sliverberry

Silverberry

This late in spring the tree is covered in yellow blooms and walking past you can’t help but notice how strong their scent is. The yellow colour amongst the silver leaves makes the tree pop out from the rest that you can’t help noticing it when you walk by. It’s one of my favourite trees.

Pretty Little Flowers

Back in the garden again today. I just can’t help myself but when spring arrives and all the trees are in bloom along with the spring flowers making their appearance it’s just so hard not to get out and photograph.

Pear Bloom

It doesn’t matter how many times I do this each year I still want more the next year.

Hyacinthe

Grape Hyacinth

One of my favourite flowers is the Grape Hyacinth. A bunch of little bell shaped flowers in a triangular bunch in vivid purple  – I just love it! I just wish they would stick around longer – say all summer? But alas we are only bathed in its beauty for a short time.

Forget me Not

Forget me Not

This bunch of Forget-me-nots was in the shape of a heart. Usually found in circular clumps I was surprised to find these in the heart formation. Kind of apropos, no?
