The Moorings community garden is lush and full of flowers, vegetables, and herbs! I took some photos there the other day of some of the beautiful blooms.

One Black-eyed Susan, all by herself! This flower attracted my attention, among all the greenery. Usually Black-eyed Susans are in large groups of yellow and black!

This tree is called “paper maple” because its bark is thin like paper. This tree at Morton Arboretum is my contribution for Becky’s

These petunias adorn the deck at our daughter’s house. I have also included a photo I made using SnapSeed.

July #TreeSquares challenge, I continue featuring trees in Tanzania, with things hanging from their branches.
I don’t know, or don’t remember (if I was told at the time) the name of this tree, but was fascinated by the strange pods or fruits hanging from it.
On the other hand, we saw many acacia trees with these tightly woven birds’ nests hanging from them.
These nests are made by the male weaver. He attracts a mate by having woven the best nest in the neighborhood!
When the weavers’ nests are abandoned, they hang bedraggled from the tree.
The “mystery” is that I have no idea what kind of flower this is! Here on campus are both lavender and reddish pink. Taking a close-up, I was intrigued by their unusual centers.

Trees harbor homes for many animals. Treetops are also a place just to hang out.
Today I feature animals in (or on or next to) trees in Tanzania for Becky’s July Squares: Trees.
The elusive leopard has a safe place for a nap.
