The day after I took this photo, the babies all left the nest underneath the deck. I’ve seen the parents since, but not the youngsters.
Both of the rose bushes I ordered have bloomed – Harison’s Yellow which I’ve wanted for a long time, just had 1 blossom, but it’s putting out lots of little shoots (note the thorns – truly wicked!).
And an iris – my start came from my Mom’s garden, and may well have come from her parents’ garden. I’ve always heard it called ochroleuca, but evidently it’s actually iris orientalis – anyway, it’s pretty and very hardy!
Spinners coming tomorrow – can’t wait 🙂
