Back to the Garden
Almost every morning, I visit the back yard. I do fairly minor chores consisting mostly of putting out seeds and nuts for the birds, filling the birdbath and dog bowl, and watering any especially thirsty plants. I check on everything. I take photographs of things that strike me as interesting or beautiful. It's well that I have a smallish yard, or I'd never get to work.
First, here is mystery plant. We spared it from the lawnmower, believing it would grown into a sunflower. It got every bit as tall as a sunflower, but as soon as it budded, it was quite obviously something else. Name this plant (because I can't) and win a small painting.
I gather fallen limes daily too. I found a slug so tiny as to be cute. I might have fed it to our lizard despite its cuteness, but the lizard wasn't up.
Finally, just some more roses, after a respectful waiting period. I thought they made a nice picture.
