Spirea...just started to bloom. This bush was distressed 2 years ago, transplanted, and now doing OK. It's shape is not the best--but then, neither is mine! It's too wet to wander far from the beaten path this morning, but here are a few other sights that met my eye in the front of our house...
Can you see the white astillbe in the background above? And below, a dusty rose one?
I saw this hummingbird peeking out a trash can one day and rescued it.
Now it hovers protectively over some miscellaneous perennials.
