Walking Around The Neighborhood

You may have read here before about my friend Susan. She stopped by yesterday afternoon and we walked a couple miles through the neighborhood and chatted the whole way. We stopped by my daughter's to see if she could join us, but as you can see in the first picture, she was engrossed in her garden, standing in maidenhair ferns, trimming varigated ginger and cannas.

Once we got to the top of the hill behind the house, a pair of angry geese rushed the fence along the road and commenced with some serious honking.

Along the same fence where the honking geese live, we found the most beautiful, juicy fruit. Clusters of grapes hanging outside the fence, ripe for the picking. We sampled a few of the darkest purple - delicious!

This fern and palm lined driveway gives the neighborhood a rural feel.

This hibiscus was the brightest flower of the day.

I loved your photographs because every one of them was so different from here in the UK. It sounds so exciting to live on the Pacific Rim - and to have wild hibiscus - they only grow here in pots in hot houses.
