I have been doing a lot more planting. I decided I wanted to try planting roses along the shoreline again....yes I know-- don't say it. I will try to stay ahead of the deer. Two of the roses they nibbled to the ground (instead of uprooting and walking off with) are blooming. I have faith the new ones might thrive as well---if they have the chance to get their roots in the ground securely.
This is the backyard, taken from the lower level, looking uphill. Shrubs are filling out, I mark my victories with each plant when I can see it from the deck. I have rearranged a few plants, giving them a bit more sunlight. When they were planted I thought the amount of light would be greater. I will photograph this angle later in the season and share the difference.
While planting and replanting I had a serenade from this Summer Tanager. His song is so pretty. It took a long time to get a photo of him, the sun was right behind him most of the time.
