As you can see I never got to another post this week. I did upload 2 Actifit posts which on the second one I tried to comment and upvote. I bought a Fitbit gadget so will be seeing if I can collect better data and do more Actifit posts.

The above photograph is the only tulip that came up. We have underground rodents that are eating them. My plan is to plant tulip bulbs this Fall and re-establish what I have had in the post

I am including a second photograph of the same tulip, but without the Macro:


Most of my Daffodils are yellow and of regular size. I have one miniature yellow one (I cannot locate the photo) that I will eventually post. Today's Daffodil is a different color as you can see. I only have a couple of them. Soon I will divide the bulbs in the Fall and try to expand that variety:


I had one more color of Hyacinth that came up. They sure are pleasant to see this time of the year. I know they have a scent, as do the daffodil, but I try not to smell them due to allergies. Enjoy:

My last photograph is a young deer I picked up on my game camera. You can see my house and out buildings in the background. Last weekend I was moving boxes of items for storage to a dry room in my barn. I stuck my head out the back door and had a doe and her young one (from last Spring) standing right next to the barn. Quite the sight to have them that close when you are not expecting it.


That brings us to the close of my weekend post. I hope everyone can find something they enjoy. I awoke early so I can finish my post before my busy day begins. I have to make a to-do list everyday to stay focused on a few things to accomplish. Otherwise, it becomes overwhelming thinking of everything I need to do.

I would remind everyone that the issues in Venezuela are far from over. Here are a couple of links for programs in Venezuela that can still use our aid. I plan on adding them as partial beneficiaries to this post:

https://fundition.io/#!/@aid.venezuela/30wfgrql0 (They continue to accept donation through Fundition until their new program begins)

https://steemit.com/@arrozymangophoto (the children seem to be really enjoying building their puppets)
https://fundition.io/#!/@arrozymangophoto/z31fxh41j (new Fundition program building off of first one)

This is a must read: https://steemit.com/aidvenezuela/@aid.venezuela/aidvenezuelaresumendelasemanasummaryoftheweek-nccjifwdgi

They are providing good documentation of what they are doing through video, photographs, and narrative). Please take the time and check them out.

There are two other programs located in Bangladesh that I have tried to support as well, and both can always use assistance. Each has an important role to play in their community.


Check all their blogs for more information on the excellent work they have begun.

I am using a Canon EOS Rebel T5 for all of these photographs, except where noted.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

To do lists always work out some miracles for the day. Good one sir

I love these flowers !!!
With so many things to do like you, naturally there will not be enough time.
After all, care for the garden and the house requires a lot of time and labor!

Thank you. Yes it is time consuming and catching up is a slow process. Today I took a couple of hours to work in my wood-shop. Had an idea for some of my larger potted flowers which I will be planting this weekend. Then I will take photos

It is interesting to see your ideas, I will wait for photos of your flowers!

These are very nice flowers and a cute deer picture also. Is that a doe?
I really like this delicate looking flower.
I will try to grow it.
I am very interested in how it looks in different colors too.
I will share your post too.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Daffodils should grow anywhere that Tulips grow. There are more varieties than the 3 I have. One of mine is a miniature and it only grows 3 - 4 inches high.

nice photography sir @r2cornel . your photography collection are very beautiful. you are a fresh thinker man . i love you flower collection picture.

Thank you very much I appreciate it

They really look beautiful Flowers. i love it. sir great job

It is a real pity that due to allergies you can not enjoy the aroma of the flowers, because they with their aroma can make us vibrate with charm.
Well at least you have the satisfaction of seeing them grow in your garden, I hope you have a good solution for that of rodents.
Greetings from Venezuela!!!

Hola! I still take in the aroma, even though it may give me a headache. My plum trees are in full bloom and the smell is wonderful. No reaction to it except pleasure.

I have spending a few days catching up outside.

sir @r2cornell what a refresh weekend for you.sir i like this most this the best shot of your coulorfull photography sir i request you can you tell me this flower name.32FTXiZsHoAW6noHJDhrg3W8ZKHVFSsLYM859aTDCF8iErNmWvNYfDd8L6a5V7NWYpRz4MnsTLSaiqGEXVvwrwmVt1atDgqruJnqNpr3bLo8Bpag9AZviHoHGieWSWUnQws6xwXNzRp4fDHQ.jpg.

This flower is a hyacinth.

Well, I am enjoying different colors of tulip bed here.. Well all parks are full of tulips, I saw yellow , red , white red mixture and pink one so far.. Really enjoying them watching and touching.. Plus still now I didnt see any daffodils here, I think I will find them... Deer look so innocent.. I love them.. I hope you will manage some tulip plants this year.. Looking forward to see more colors of them..

I seem to get tulip catalogs in early Summer, so I will be watching for them and plan in buying some bulbs. They would go good mixed in with all the daffodils I have planted.

In a single word just beautiful. Amazing. I really appreciate your job.

Dear @r2cornell

What beautiful Tulips. We really enjoy seeing those beautiful flowers that you publish. The bright colors are a way to enjoy the beauty of nature, I am very sorry that these rodents are eating their tulip plants.

I send you a big hug from Venezuela and thank you very much for all the support you give to the Venezuelans,

these days in Venezuela things are not very good the government has been dedicated to kill many Venezuelans on Thursday killed a child of only 15 years and a 24-year-old woman both shot in the head the government gave that order to kill people.

Thank you with regards to the flowers.

I had not heard from many Venezuelan followers and was wondering what was going on. It is very sad news about the order to kill, and the death of these two people.

Stay safe!

Too bad tulips, can they be dug out for winter and planted only in spring? I have the same blooming tulips and pleasantly delight the eye. Thank you for your photos as always beautiful

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Flowers are my favorite.Because flowers increase our natural beauty.We use flowers as a symbol of love.You can very beautiful flower photography.Really you are a good man.

Wow absolutely great Photography @r2cornell

schönes wochenende wünsche ich dir

Danke für Ihren Besuch.

Greetings @ r2cornell

As you comment, the rodents are eating the planting. You will have to take this situation into consideration for your future plantings.

I do not use poisons for the rodents but I have some plans for them. In my orchard they destroy the root system of some of my fruit trees. I should have more time this summer so I am hoping to make it a high priority. One of my dogs will dig them up, and I am hoping she will teach my youngest one to do the same.

Hi, r2cornell. Nice post. I also like to take pictures of flowers and nature. Yesterday in Krakow I met such beautiful flowers.

Thank you very much. Beautiful flower!

Wow such sweet pictures!!! LOVE your photograph!!!

How is it?? @r2cornell I click it last day 😍

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Beautiful sky photo!

Welcome 😍😍😍😍

The quality of photos and the beauty of flowers is amazing. The color of the plants shows us once again how beautiful the green nature is. Taking this opportunity, I want to thank you for the hard work you put into growing these plants. Judging by the photos you live in direct contact with nature, I can only imagine what kind of clean air there is. I wonder how things are in your area with drinking water. I mean the way to mine it. Probably you are using a well. Many thanks for the interesting post. Health to you and your loved ones

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Yes I have a well for water. Because it does not provide enough water for gardening I put in a large holding tank. So if I use too much water during the day it has the opportunity to refill overnight.

I have a tub that I use to put out water for some of the wildlife. Mostly deer and wild turkeys use it. Some birds come in for a drink. I also have a small garden pond for the birds to get a drink all summer.

The air is fresh and yes I am in the middle of nature. I tried city life in my younger years and hated it. I was raised like I live and I worked 7 days a week for many years to be able to by the land I have. I had more, but I sold half of it to my daughter.

Thank you sir for responding to my comment. You are a really strong person, I mean the power of personality. I am sincerely glad that I have the opportunity to read and communicate with you. I want to confess to you that if it were not for you, then I would have already left the Steemit platform. There was a time when I lost all interest in this resource. Thank you very much.

I appreciate the comment about staying with steemit. I know I have thought several times of walking away, but then I meet someone new or someone I have know for awhile gives me the motivation to continue.

I have watched followers grow over the couple years I have been here and many in that early stage of growth. Exciting.

Again that you

Que mala noticia amigo @r2cornell esos roedores se esten comiendo tus plantas de Tulipanes ya que son hermosas, espero esos próximos bulbos que plantes crezcan sanos y puedas disfrutar de ellos. Se ve que eres un gran fanático y amante de la naturaleza. Además muchas gracias por siempre estar al pendiente de todos los últimos aconteimientos ocurridos en Venezuela por que como dices nuestros problemas estan muy lejor de terminar. Saludos y feliz fin de semana

Gracias por su visita.

Es triste por los bulbos de tulipán, pero no es nada comparado con lo que los venezolanos están tratando todos los días.

¡Mantenerse a salvo!

Eso es cierto @r2cornell pero que podemos hacer por ahora solo mantenernos FUERTES y en pie de lucha
