It is not yet spider time, but there are plenty of bees.

Beautiful pictures Alice, thank you :wave:
It's plenty of wasps/bees here too. They have left their nests, "buzzing" around half dead. It's easy to get a wasp/bee sting if we are not aware :help:

I have a thing about taking pictures of bees

I do not know what this flower is -- I need to figure it out. It may be invasive and it can definitely grow in a tiny crack in the pavement. -- This is in my parent's neighbourhood. I don't think there is any in mine.

Beautiful photos, alice :thumbs:

It seems you had a good day at the beach with great views!

A few days ago I saw here in BR TV program a travelling magazine and people were in Oregon, it was wonderful there!

I´ll go and have a look to remember which route they took .....

edit:

Got it now - this is the link to BR mediathek - sorry, in German only :unsure:
http://mediathek-video.br.de/B7Mediathe ... ccode=both

The route was Portland - Pendleton - Baker City - Bend - Crater Lake - Florence - McMinnville

If somebody had asked me to pack my suitcase and go there immediately I would have said "YES" :laugh:

Bea I am sorry I thought I had responded -- I do think Oregon is beautiful (if we could have European cities -- denser population and smaller it would be pretty near perfect.)

I had to look up Baker City because I do not know much about it although I once took an Arts Management class with a guy from there.

I did not find the right program -- but I watched one that seemed to be set in the Alps -- very beautiful

So although I am kind of admitting that it is now autumn.

I thought I might post a last spring/summer image or two -- taken not too long ago.

This one looks like winter (I think we use this for Christmas decoration) but this photo was taken this spring.

I have forgotten what these are -- they are a perennial, which dies back to nothing or almost nothing in the winter, then they grow to about a meter tall and make pretty delicate flowers. I was working hard to pull english ivy out of the bed.

another one I don't know what it is ... but I love it. It grows under my neighbour's Magnolia

More Flowering Quince ---

They bloom after most of the earliest bulbs are finished, but before most of the rest of the flowers and my hummingbirds love them -- so I love them too.
