Late May – Early June

Busy times. Weeding, watering, planting, weeding, watering. I have taken lots of photos but haven’t had a chance to post them, so there are a lot in this post. It has been a cool rainy spring but now it is becoming warm and dry. We have had bluebirds and wrens nesting this year and all kinds of birds at the feeders. Chipmunks are everywhere. The iris are beautiful and I have some blooming this year that I thought I had lost. Its always such a treat when a plant returns. Enjoy.

  1. That is what a clematis should look like. I had never done well with them. The climate here is less than ideal for them. However, there are about four at work that happen to be doing nicely. It is different climate from my home garden just a short distance away. I do not tend to them, but the colleague who does seems to know what they want.
    ‘Beverly Sills’ catches my attention because of the name. It sounds like Beverly Hills, which is a town in the Los Angles region where the Canyon News, one of the newspapers that I write for, is located.
