How Does Your Garden Grow

I thought that I can never join this week's HDYGG. I dont have any photos. Just bits and pieces of blooms taken on short walks to and from my son's school. Nothing new as Ive been in this route for like the nth time. Or so I thought.

I actually have no camera when I saw these and I was like I wish I can fly home like a superhero and fly back as Flash so that I can upload and look at them in my laptop.

The these that I am talking about are well these...

I dont know what they are! Eggs? Pest? Part of the leaf? But why are the other leaf not affected? Am I suppose to be worried that I am exposed to them?

And the randon photos that I took while going on the normal school run. Apologies if some photos are so blurry. It was a windy week.

Lovely photos, looks like a very pretty walk. The bumps are I think leaf gall.

My guess would have been eggs. I don't know what else they could be.

The little red dots are the reaction of the plant to a tiny mite digging into the leaf. They won't harm you and will not even damage the tree ... which is a sycamore. :)

Good old Rosie - she knew! Yay! I love that third one down especially - it looks enormous! Amazing what pretty things are around us everyday when you stop to look isn't it?

Love that you ended on a happy orange colour, like a sunshine :)

Thank you for joining in again!

I had similar anxiety when this week's lovingly prepared post was in danger of being hampered by various problems on my blog, now solved, I hope. I love the subtle blue of the bluebell x
