Grab Bag -4

 sharing with...lots of memes. Scroll down to the photo that matches the meme ;)
Sweet Stoney Braveheart always insists on two peanuts at a time!
(He has the most magnificent tail I have ever seen on a squirrel)

Male House Finch, a common bird, but one of my favourites.
Nigella damascene (Love-in-a-Mist) 
Last week I featured the same flower in pink.  I was thrilled to have some blue, and some white ones bloom from the same seed packet.

Merfy, I just love this sweet little face and that cute nose!

Against All Odds

Nigella damascene (Love-in-a-Mist)
belonging to the buttercup family Ranunculaceae
I fell in love with this flower when I saw it on someone's blog last year. I just had to have it in my garden. It's native to southern Europe, north Africa and southwest Asia. So, my chances of finding it in Canada were slim!
I managed to locate heirloom seeds, 'Persian Rose', online. I ordered them and planted them in June. I didn't have high hopes of them growing (considering our climate), but, against all odds...they grew and bloomed!

(The bloom is about the size of my thumbnail)
