Blue Iris

My favorite irises are about to bloom.  The Siberian Iris.

Siberian Iris

The first clematis blossom opened this week.  The plant died back quite a bit after our record cold winter.  It only has a handful of buds this year.


I spotted our friend “Chippy” filling up his cheeks under our neighbor’s bird feeder a few nights ago.


We see deer in our yard every day now.  Sometimes twice or three times a day.  The deer repellent has kept them away from my Asiatic lilies until a couple of days ago.  They ate all but two buds.  😦

The fog moved out this morning and we actually had an 80 degree day with peeks of sunshine.  We are hoping for another warm day tomorrow.  Fingers crossed.
