With a new bloom from the Keepsake Mountain Laurel
More rain due today but nothing serious. That will give the last baby robin time to grow more adult feathers. Mom is watching and waiting for her last fledgling to take off in flight.
Yesterday, while I was pressure washing the back of the house I saw a startling sight: the first fledgling had flown down to the steps of the deck. It had mostly adult feathers but on each side of it’s head it had it’s baby feathers sticking out like it was as startled to see me as I was him/her!
When the nest is finally empty (there is one hiding in there right now)
we can finishing cutting down the last Black River Birch and maybe the okra will get enough sun to believe that it’s time to grow.
The Stella d’Oro Lillies seem to like their new location
and the Coral Drift was nicely protected from last night’s high winds by the (soon to no longer be) huge Box Wood Blobs
Everything out in the veggie garden seems to have survived quite well. The peas are flowering, hopefully we’ll have pods to show soon and the nursery tomato plants have green tomatoes already. My home started seedlings are finally past to second leaf set stage and will shoot up with warm weather. Some day, yes.
