Things are growing!

The garden is doing so well.  The garden continues to grow. Sadly, the hibiscus is as tall as me, but the roses are stuck in its shade. I'll have to ponder that one.


The tiger lilies have blossomed! They are just beautiful.  Isabelle likes the pollen! (Aug., 2020)


The goldfish are doing well. I have let the brown-eyed susans do their thing.



Out in the back, the cukes and pumpkins have blossoms, but I am not hopeful. Out season is so short.



The hydrangea in the morning sun. I tried to be artistic, but I'll leave that to others.




I went out to inspect the new driveway, and spotted a pair of scarlet tanagers in the tree. (You'll have to trust me! There were two.) 

Down at the highway, there were three birds, a pair of flickers and a robin, hanging out in the dead trees.

I'm terrible with identifying birds and plants. Pretty views.

You are a good naturalist.

Scarlet tanagers -- I have not seen one for quite some time. Flowering plants are such a joy and I like the way Isabelle has decorated herself.

...here, things that I want to grow are growing and somethings that I don't want!

Mike saw a scarlet tanager at the cabin. First time ever!

The light through the hydrangea blossom is very pretty. Love the pollen on Isabelle. Gardens are so lovely at this time of year.

Love Scarlet Tanagers but hardly ever see one. I don't think they like open meadows and we do not have enough large trees to pretend we are in a forest.

Jenn - a lovely garden, but I was so blown away by the scarlet tanager!

Your environment is so beautiful. The garden looks terrific!
