10 - Rosehips along Lower Water Street near Pier 21 in Halifax.
11 - A beautiful male pheasant that got lost in our yard last fall, among the Lungwort. We'd never had a pheasant drop by before, and haven't since. He eventually found his way back to the woods.
12 - These yellow flowers grow all over the beaches here in Nova Scotia, but I can't seem to find out what they're called. But I love how they tumble over the coastline.
