At 5 AM this young bear decided to play tether ball
with the bird feeders near the living room window. Then hustled off to the easier lick and eat feeder on the shed. I normally pull down the feeders but we have had fledgling cardinals frequenting the feeders. (Sorry about the fuzzy pic. Taken through the window.)

The native American beauties that turned rural roads into blazes of color in the days when America was naturally beautiful! Old-Fashioned daylilies grow about 2 feet tall in practically any soil or climate. Producing lovely 4-5" bright orange blooms. Each bloom on the Old-Fashioned daylily lasts one day, but each plant has 20 blooms or more for a profusion of new orange beauty, day after day.
They are blooming! Waiting for the "new" plants to start up. Lots of buds promise lots of blooms.

I was weeding and noticed lots of flying activity. Pollinators. And of course the cats always follow me to the garden. Supervisor Maui Waui surveying the landscape.
