So now color pots are our mainstay for the yard, apart from the shrubs which have still to bloom. The bouganvillea is still blooming, I don't think it ever stops. It is a favorite spot for the birds to survey the scene before making for the feeders.
The beautiful oriole visits many times a day now, with his wife and young son taking their turns at the grape jelly. I took this photo three days ago. I was just sitting out on the porch and there he was -- what a picture!
The song sparrow is nesting in there somewhere ...
.....as well as house finches and wrens.
The lavenders and purples turn to red and yellow
A pot of lantana...
The New Zealand Christmas tree, though it looks like a small bottle brush to me...
....the golden euonymous
There are still several other bushes set to bloom as the summer moves on.
No rain for the creek now -- probably not now until October. Thankfully the park have released a little water so the ducks, egrets and heron are not totally without some to enjoy.
THANK YOU LORD
My step granddaughter is doing much better. She is still very limited in her diet and tires quickly. But she is making great progress. Thank you for your prayers.
