Lots of Shots........
Morning skies really can't predict the rest of the day. We are now clouded over with no promise more than just sprinkles. It was cold this morning helping to cool down the inside of our house. It has been warm and the house seems to hold its heat in the summer.
I see wrens in the apple tree and the calls of the wren are frequent from the orchard area. I have not seen a wren enter or leave the house this summer. Maybe the young ones are not hatched yet so when that happens the activity really increases. There are morning glory vines starting at the bottom of the trellis. I have to water them almost every day now.
It was said that we are having a very dry spell for this month compared to normal. Our inch rain last week didn't make up any deficits at thsi point.
Finding new ways to take shots of the same old thing each day can be a challenge. This one armed shot helps to display the three directions that the blooms are facing. This is my fancy ruffled lily. I have only one of them in my set of lily plants.
I did some serious clearing of plants around my hostas yesterday. In my excitement to show the hosta that I rescued form weeds and phlox I see that I have a left foot in the picture. I have so many hostas thar treally need to be thinned out by dividing and replanting them elsewhere. With two of my large tree removed need to plant more along the exposed to sunlight border next to the dog's fence. I see hostas being moved into that area for a good solution.
A sloppy shot of the stargazer lily. I will blame Button the dog on this one. You can see the stem and leaves are totally different than most Asiatic lilies and is nothing like a daylily variety. The fragrance from a stargazer is strong and good. It can be smelled from many parts of the garden.
Those who normally follow my blogs know that this is the time of the year when I have a lot of photos, more than I can share. I just load a few more on each day on the two blogs and some good shots just get to stay buried in the files. It is damp and cold outside right now but it will warm up by the end of the day. I hope Wednesday is a good day for you and thanks for stopping by today.
