We’ve been hearing the honks of our Mystery Guests but haven’t spotted them. Well, today we saw the Egyptian Geese and think they are building a nest.
We certainly hope so. It’s going to be fun to watch them raise their family on our little pond. Remember, if you would like to see any of these images enlarged just click on the picture.
Our garden is happily blooming away. Daylilies, Canna Lilies, Cleome, Arizona Sun Gaillardia and Salvia make a colorful mix.
Cleome was a pleasant surprise in our garden this year. We had sown a few seeds a couple of years ago but they never grew. Then last fall several came up in the middle of a pathway leading through one of the beds. We transplanted them to this spot and kept them covered during the winter freezes. They now are rewarding us with their incredible spider blooms.
Here is the Canna Lily bed from the other side. They are just out doing themselves this year, the combination of Rose Glo and Medina has certainly worked. That’s the rose arbor on the right you saw in full bloom last month. Just thought I’d take a little break from painting to share our garden and pond with you. Have a wonderful day.
