If you look with attention, you can see my dear Flora at the right of the photo. Se você olhar com atenção poderá ver a minha querida Flora à direita da foto.

My sweet and so missed Flora. Minha doce e saudosa Flora.



Photos of cedar hedge fence along my property, taken by myself. Fotos clicadas por mim da cerca de cedrinhos em volta da minha casa.



  1. Lindo e passa até o frescor que essas árvores todas nos trazem! beijos,linda semana!chica

  2. Such a BEAUTIFUL Natural Fence, my dear Sonia....And it was lovely to see your very dear Flora, once again....I know how much you miss her.
    I am always amazed at the different foliage that surrounds your home...So many lovely areas and so many special trees. I've said it before---you live in a Paradise...!

  3. Some of us have fences...and then some of us have FENCES!!

  4. What a beautiful place to live - those trees are so impressive.

  5. you have plenty of open spaces in your home. very green too.

  6. Oh yes, there she is! Sweet Flora...
    Dear Sonia, does that gorgeous cedar hedge exude that glorious cedar aroma?

  7. I can imagine the nice smell which comes with the view when going for a walk in your "backyard."

  8. Beautiful sensation of calm and spaciousness from these photos. Lovely.

  9. I have suggested a movie for people like you and me. It's not specifically for those who have loved a dog, but it is especially for those who have loved a dog.

  10. Ah, a Florinha e os cedros! :)
    Como ela adorava passear no jardim!
    Muitas saudades da nossa amada companheirinha!!!!
    Adorei o post, mãe, lindo!
    Muitos beijos!!!

  11. That a beautiful fence, made by nature. Do you think you will get a puppy sometime?

  12. Cedars?? In the TROPICS??!!??

    They are beautiful!

  13. Essas fotos são magnificas Sonia,não canso de fitá-las encantada,
    nao sei bem se essas mas meus primeiros contatos contigo foi apreciando esse lugar de cercas vivas e uma estrada em que passeavam com a Flora,
    _ tem fotos que merecem ser enquadradas como pinturas,
    são muito lindos esses passeios a dois ,são sentimentais.
    te deixo abraços Sonia e dias felizes

  14. Cara Sônia,
    Até dá vontade de entrar nalgumas destas imagens.

  15. Oh, it does my heart good to see your sweet Flora. You must think of her every time you pass that cedar hedge. I know she left many memories around your property, as well as in your heart.

  16. Hi John,
    We used to named the tree of my fence as "Cedar". But as I don't know so much about botany, I have doubt then I Googled and I saw that my fence is a conifer, from cypress family, the Cupressaceae. The cypress family (order Pinales), includes 27–30 genera, with 133 species of evergreen ornamental and timber shrubs and trees, and they are distributed throughout the world. The family includes the junipers and redwoods. Cupressaceae is the most widely distributed conifer family, with a near-global range in all continents except for Antarctica.

  17. a wonderful wall of trees! i like your pup, too. :)

  18. I'm a bit surprised that any conifer would grow in the tropics, so now I'm learning something new. The conifers in your photographs are beautiful.

    So temperate is your part of Brazil -- in some ways it reminds me of central California, as I look at your photographs.

    Cupressaceae -- in California, they're very common, in one subfamily or another: coast redwoods in the fog belt along the coast, giant sequoias in the Sierras Nevada, incense-cedars in the forests around 1,000 meters elevation, and Monterey cypresses half an hour from where I lived.

    Perhaps yours is of the genus Araucaria.

  19. Pretty scenic shots! And your puppydog is a sweetie! Have a happy weekend!

  20. Greetings and thanks for visiting our blogs again and for your nice comments.

    You live in such a beautiful place. I love cedar trees and they make a wonderful fence! Love your beautiful dog, too. I'll bet you miss her!

  21. Lovely place to walk, relax and think about life! :-)

    check out my trail camera pictures:

  22. I bet those cedars smell beautiful too.

  23. Such wonderful views! And to see your dear Flora.... Hugs....

  24. beautiful. Did you plant them yourself? A friend of mine has a small ranch here she planted cyprus as a kind of wind break.

    Flora is so pretty. Do you plan to get another dog? I have been heartbroken from the loss of a pet over the years. I like to put a morning period between me and the lost one. I usually only have one cat at a time. A siamese because they are very social. My favorite was my first. Her name was Tess. Twyla, my latest has gotten under my skin. She is so much fun and so silly.

  25. The team at Lye Farm at Dairy NZ made me extremely welcome, I have managed to get be to get involved with various amounts of things. I have fed cows, cut grass for analysis, carried out tiller densities, and read....Softfall NSW
