didn't feel like participating as I've been recovering from a Dental procedure that has set me back.

Then we have something in common. It seems like lately there's always a procedure in the recent past or the near future.

Those native plants I was talking about--here are foxtails and other weedy grasses. So abundant!

I hear you OhLook. I've heard that early in life some of us spend our Health to gain Wealth and later in life spend our Wealth to try to gain back our Health.

Like your Foxtail shot. Amazing how weeds and wild plants seem to always flourish in their natural environment no matter what the weather dose. At some point in the year they will produce.

Thanks, Grizz. These foxtails occupy much of the patch that's nominally our lawn. :rolleyes: We don't really want a lawn, but we haven't replaced it with something more interesting.

I think this fits the theme perfectly.

Great shots, everybody!

I have a number of shots to share, but I'm starting with a birdie.

I thought this was rather cute and it fits the theme well: a little House Sparrow hunting bugs that swarm around the house. He was literally climbing the walls. :-) I didn't process the shots, just cropped them, put them together in a little collage and sharpened them a bit.

I went out this morning also and man, I really suck at landscapes. I mean, only when I see the shots at home, on the big screen, do I realise how I should have taken the shot. But then it's too late of course... :rolleyes:

The park. Urban nature par excellence I think. Grey skies here too, I'm afraid.
I included some of the bridge to emphasise it's really urban scenery, but that was probably a mistake.

On my way back from the park I came across this house. I thought the cat was cool.

The last shot.
I just thought this example of urban nature was pretty.

Really nice additions, Levina, Kevin, & Pete! Levina, I really like the posed bird and the last image. The cat in the window made me smile. :-)

Frayne, the poor bird at the birdbath looks soaked!

Here's one more from me. This is my freshly planted garden. It's taken a long time to turn the red clay into nice brown dirt. I try to have as much nature as I can in this setting. That cell tower in the back is not an enjoyable sight, and if you look on the left, you can see the new lights the church put up that I mentioned in another post (with the rain shot). In this photos I have a couple of small blackberry bushes on the left, some tomatoes in the foreground (and more to the right out of the picture), potatoes planted along the fence, some black bean seeds planted in rows leading to the shed, & red onions and lettuce off to the right. There are also some jalapeno peppers and bell pepper plants as well as cucumbers (which you really can't see) in front of the shed. Hopefully in a few weeks, there will be a good bit of green here!

I may be fascinated with volcanoes, but the name's Lisa.

Nice garden, Lisa. I've done all the prep work in the raised beds and hope to get ours planted this coming week.
We're way behind schedule this year, again. :-(

If this thread shows anything it's how important nature is and how, in our cities, or wherever we are, we surround ourselves with it if we can, in our streets, in our parks, and buy it in the shape of seeds, potted plants, flowers, you name it.

I really like your garden, Lisa. Couldn't you plant like a really high tree as a shield for that tower? :-P

EDIT: Oh, forgot to say thank you for nice comments and likes!

I am very surprised no street photography as of yet. That is Urban nature at it's finest....:lol:

Another from me.
