A flash of vivid orange tells me there are orioles making their home here again this year. I'm quite sure I have seen thrashers with their long bills along with the more common robins and sparrows.
|Blue flax, Linum lewisii, is such a pretty shade of blue.|
|Mock orange shrub, Philadelphus, sparkles in the mixed shrub border.|
|Allium cristophii with its starry lollipop blooms is an outstanding plant.|
|Heritage, a David Austin English rose, has had another good year.|
|Fragrant blooms and foliage make this charming rose a keeper.|
