Wander Through the Garden

The front gardens have many textures in the leaves
of plants, while some flowers have made their debut
and exited, others are yet to appear.

This chipmunk is feasting on an orange left for
the orioles. To see more of the chipmunk click here
and here.

Some of the lilacs are beginning to open
and are swaying in the breeze with the
apple blossoms.

The columbine is a partially hidden treasure
in the shade.

Through the trellis is a hint of the rhododendron
that the hummingbird loves

Thanks Willoughby!
Looks like another summer-like day here. Yesterday I saw two chipmunks resting along the edges of the birdbath in dappled light, looked like they were lounging at a pool.

There is just something about a garden with a picket fence. I love that garden gate. I wish my gardens were situated where I could uses a picket fence. You have a lovely spot, Nan.

Thanks Marnie,
D made all of those pickets! Now he's been able to get some old recycled fencing that would have been thrown out and it is very useful in many areas.
