Purple Bloomers

  I found these pretty purple bloomers in my yard!

lavender purple bearded Iris 
from springtime

Blooms of a purple spiderwort,
can you see the tiny bees?
another spring bloomer

a trio of lavender purple clematis bloomers climbing up my spooky tree 
late springtime bloomer

Mexican heather flowers blooming.
I bought this basket early this year,
it wasn't doing so well at first, 
but it is doing better now that I have it in all day sunshine
been blooming all summer, it is an annual in WI.

Have you spied any bloomers lately?

Until next time ...

What's Blooming in red?

  I am featuring RED this week.

I have a beautiful neon red geranium that has been blooming quite nicely this summer. It is a new variety I purchased this year from the HGTV brand called "So Amazing™". Depending on the sunlight the color is really bright.

Geranium blooms on high ...

this under-shot reminds me of a pineapple tree

the glow of the "neon" color seems to show 
up better in this shot, at least to me

Is there anything red in your yard this week?

until next time ...

Attack of the flying pigs!

  Attack! We are under attack!!

  It is the time of year with lots of activity at our bird feeders.
Feather and fur alike are pigging out and bringing their babies, heck their whole family! The critters outside are eating better than we are inside~

Recognize any of the pigs below?

click on any of my photos to enlarge,
please ask if you would like a copy

female hairy woodpecker

This is what the suet feeder normally looks like,
but when they see me at the windows they scatter...

immature male oriole eating suet

male and female grosbeaks dueling over suet

we even have furry leaping, flying pigs!
a.k.a. squirrels.
the chipmunks were to quick for me to catch with my camera

Warning ...

We are putting out less seed and suet for now,
 the yard and woods is full of natural food to keep the pigs happy.

Do you have flying pigs in your area?

Until next time,
what are you sharing this week?
