I’ve seen quite a few photos of hydrangeas on other blogs lately. These looked especially lush.
And then my sister just sent me a photo from her Hudson River Walk today in New York City
I got a text that my friend saying she was in the driveway. She’d brought a bag of homegrown lettuce from her garden. I sat on the side porch stoop, she stayed in her car. We talked a bit. Thanks for the delicious lettuce, Joan. You wrapped it so carefully in the wet towels. It was crispy and refreshing. Summer.
I have found the inspiration for the Train and Tracks post and the Flower of the Day Challenge from Cee at her CeenPhotography blog
Here is a true lily amongst the daylilies ( which I just learned aren’t true lilies after all ) Found in my backyard under the Eastern Redbud Tree.
Lily “a bulbous plant with large trumpet-shaped, typically fragrant, flowers on a tall, slender stem. Lilies have long been cultivated, some kinds being of symbolic importance and some used in perfumery.”
They return every year. I learned a Daylily (hemerocallis) is not a lily. You can read it here.
Note: although I edited yesterday’s midday post, you might have missed it. The 250 pound bear seen in my driveway around noon, settled in a yard about three blocks up the street. After s couple of hours, he was tranquilized, captured and relocated. It was on the local news.
David grows the best raspberries. And The best garlic. You’ve seen the garlic on the blog before. He’s an excellent gardener, working long and hard hours every day.
I’ve stood in his garden by the raspberry canes. Picked the delicious berries. Nothing like eating a berry warmed in the sun. I can eat about as many as I put in the pail.
Happy Birthday David.
My friend reassured me the mother would return, that they leave them in a safe place. I’m hoping that reunion occurred in the night. It was certainly a surprise to find the little fawn looking at me when I went out to get in the car to go to the post office. The fawn spent the day in my backyard, under the apple tree, hidden in some tall weeds. My next door neighbor had helped me plant some heirloom tomato plants and went with me to the very back yard and confirmed it was still lying there. I was concerned it was abandoned but when I called the city help line they said non-threatening wildlife is left to nature. Leave it alone. So I did.
