More birds

I finally caught an oriole with the camera. They have been elusive, but they sure like the jelly out front.

Here is a pair of juvenile orioles. Perhaps they are the reason I have to fill the jelly bowl every two days.

Morning on the swamp


On this perfect July day, I decided to help weed in the gardens. It felt good to pick the succulent, pernicious perslain and throw it out into the lawn. We made great progress. It was needed, for the weeds are galloping along as fast as everything else.

People are coming to see the gardens, which makes us sheepish since they are anything but ready. Yet, people seem to enjoy walking around. This afternoon there were enough customers to prevent me from getting any writing done until seven this evening.
