We’ve had lots of birds and critters in the yard, including this wren, who was exploring below the deck yesterday,
(the rock “mulch” is the only way I’ve found to keep the chipmunks from digging up my plants)
and one of the pair of phoebes that’s nesting down under again (closer than usual – I snuck this shot over the railing)
and more of the local wildlife – I’m glad I’ve got a rabbit-proof fence around the veggies!
and even caterpillars – since they’re Swallowtail caterpillars (actually 5 of them), I just picked up another dill plant 😉
Prairie Sunrise has been spectacular, though the rains have made it a bit droopy. I counted 24 flowers and buds on it.
Just a little ways over, the hollyhocks are getting ready to bloom – can’t wait to see what color(s) are there.
This was the sky last evening, and it’s supposed to be more of the same, which makes Toby one unhappy dog, even with his ThunderShirt!
