Summer warmth and beauty!

The garden's structure, so lovely.

Each season is a treasure.

The migrants are beautiful!

 

May to June...      As I write this, there is a rainbow to the east.  

 

Like many areas of the nation, we have had our abundance of rain.  The garden is lush and green.  When the sun shines, the many flowers perk up in response to the warmth and light.  

 

What a lovely time of year,  the beginning of summer.  The peonies, clemetis, iris, and late lilacs are blooming.  Soon, the daylilies, oriental lilies, alliums, roses, foxglove, lupines and more will give a stunning display.

 

The gardenia is full of blooms and is so fragrant!

 

The migrating bird populations have chosen the 'best home' for their families, and many have had their first clutch of babies.  One robin has her nest at eye level, so we can stop and get a close up view of the babies.

 

The wild bird populations continue to delight us around the feeders.   Our favorites include, Downy Woodpeckers, Titmouse, Nuthatches, Wrens,  Chickadees, Cedar Wax Wings, and more.   

 

As you prepare for your garden this season, please take a moment to watch this video about neonicotinoids. 

"One see coated with neonicotinoid pesticides is enough to kill a songbird like Blue Grossbeak.  Avoiding these and other pesticides in your home and garden can make a difference."      https://abcbirds.org/neonics

Her blushing farewell, at my feet were strown."
