We have had the most splendid visitation of daylilies this summer!
 These beauties came first
 They were out front when we moved in
I transplanted them to side, along our privacy fence, where they are thriving
 The yellow ones were here, too!
 What a pleasure it was the first time they bloomed
So gorgeous!
 Now they are joined by double-orange daylilies!
 Thanks to a friend from Texas who sent us some
 We love them all!

Our pet geranium is thriving
As is the little flower garden I planted this year for my sweetie
 I also planted two tomato plants, but they have been completely outclassed by two volunteer plants
See what I mean? Mysterious and wonderful!
We also have at least two volunteer sunflowers growing in our beds
I think I know who planted them...
 The moon has been prominent overhead this week
 I've been playing with new software
 Sharpening the images
But sometimes one should just bask in the moonlight
 Finally, when I bought this fabulous basket for our back yard,
 I knew they would come to it, sooner or later
 Yesterday, a female ruby-throated hummingbird put on quite a show for me!

Peace be with you, dear friends...

Love that hummer - she is so cute!

Squirrels are apparently great gardeners - and they enjoy the bounty too. We'll have to keep an eye out!

I love the photos but during this hot summer I could just linger over your banner photo!

My interpretation of snow-covered Lake Junaluska, just north of Waynesville, NC, Bruce...the coolest place we've ever lived, literally.

Great photos! Hope the squirrel doesn't harvest too many of your tomatoes.
