The third bud is starting to open. I guess the plant needed to get use to the house as it has not burst into bloom like the last one that I had. They usually bloom a bud every other day. This bloom is not all the way open but I wanted to get a shot of it anyway.
The finch looks a little scruffy as its feathers grow in a new yellow batch. They are suppose to have a black cap and that doesn't seem to be happening at this time. The house finch and goldfinch are busy eating up as much thistle seed as possible.
I will finish today by sharing this small potted plant that I saw in the Botanical Center. The leaves remind me of a scented geranium but I really don't know what it is.
Here is a close up view of that plant showing the shapes of the leaves better. Its flower is a great looking one that does look somewhat like a geranium and not a hardy geranium.
I work only five hours today which is good for me. I go in late today to work as an associate with special education students. We have had rainy weather for a while but right now we have full sun. It is great to see the shining ball of fire. Thank you for stopping by today.
