Summer warmth and beauty!

The garden's structure, so lovely.

Each season is a treasure.

The migrants are beautiful!

 

June is here, and in no time July!

 

With the beginning of summer comes all of the lasting color until fall.

This includes the Rudbeckias, Cosmos, Zinnias, Hostas, Phlox, Milkweeds, Grasses, and others.

 

Of course, the Daylilies, Joe Pye, Hollyhocks, Herbs, and Hydrangeas will last into July.

 

Many of the nests are empty now as the parents teach their first clutch to feed themselves before starting another clutch of bablies.

 

I saw an Orchard Oriole, the female, at our fountain one day getting a drink.  Then I saw the male at the pond.  What a treat!

 

The wild bird populations continue to delight us around the feeders and the water features.   Our favorites include: Downy Woodpeckers, Goldfinches, Purple Finches, Wrens,  Chickadees, Thrushes, Cardinals, 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."
