Exploring My New Backyard

We had kitchen cabinets installed at the new house today, but there wasn’t much I could do except stand around and get in the way of the installers.  Instead, I grabbed my camera and wandered around the backyard.  It was raining, but just barely.

This rose is attached to a bush that is the size of an elephant.  I’m really not exaggerating.

The Camellia in the courtyard is completely covered in buds and I’ve been patiently waiting for it to bloom for weeks.  This one flower was waiting for me today.

The berries on this Myrtle tree look just like blueberries.  Unfortunately, they don’t taste like blueberries at all and I won’t be eating any more of them.  In the background you can see that the pineapple guavas are still dropping like crazy.

This brick wall surrounds the entire yard.  I’m not sure how it’s still standing after all these years, but I think it’s absolutely beautiful and I’m thankful for its strength.

The new cat has definitely decided to stay.
