There has been so much rain, I do believe a few of my plants have drowned. Or their roots anyway.
They look sad. I’m trying to breathe life back into them.
Meanwhile, I hear the mockingbird out there singing up a storm. And the male cardinal. It’s full on mating season, I suppose.
Lemon grass. This particular container seems to draw the pupsters in.
I added two purple petunia plants to this container, and I sometimes find them munching on the flowers.
I keep trying to surround it with things to keep them out, but they’re pretty creative.
The blooming flowers make me smile every time I go out there or stand at the patio door staring out.
I don’t think I’ve ever met a daisy I didn’t love. You can see them there in the background. I hope the pupsters don’t take to munching my daisies!
Someone asked me what the trailing plants are in a couple of photos, but I wasn’t sure which ones they were referring to.
The trailing plants that I currently have are vinca and creeping jenny. I also have sweet potato vines, but they’re not to the trailing stage yet.
I wonder if the cardinal couple are the same visiting couple every year? Do you know what their habit is?
What birds are visiting your yard or patio?
