It's always sad when a flower drops its last petal. Wouldn't it be neat if all our flowers held their blooms all spring and summer long? The tulips and daffodils are gone. The lilacs are on their last leg. Spring marches on. But, it's always very cool when you get the first bloom of another flower. We have our first day lily. I am clueless as to how many we have. It's a bunch, different kinds and sizes. Whenever we need some day lilies, we just split some off from wherever it's overgrown. Alas, the marsh marigold lost its last petal yesterday. The last flower came from a seedling, so this guy should expand pretty quickly.
Pat and I feed the animals. Some are invited like ducks and birds. Some aren't, like rabbits and deer. But, you can't get one without the other. Every year we are treated to baby ducks. It's fun to watch them running around the yard. When mama duck senses danger, they are off and running. The pic is out of focus because it was one of those, run quick, find the camera and get the pic.
