A stroll around the yard

When I'm too tired to be actively working, I stroll around the yard and see all the things that need to be done.  But that's not all I see.  Here are some things I've seen this week in my yard and garden.

A red-spotted purple butterfly,
yet another bloom on my daylily 'Final Touch,'
 the divisions of irises that I transplanted from Mom's,

 some new growth on the daylilies and stokesia that were rescued from the neighbor's yard,

 the Jerusalem artichokes blooming in the garden,
a white-eyed vireo in the apple tree,

and a jetliner overhead--maybe taking people to an exotic location away from everyday toil... ...or maybe taking on a business trip people who would rather be at home in their yard and garden.

  1. Love the day lily and the fresh growth. Of course the Butterfly is still one of the most beautiful creations on earth.
    From Belmont. Sending love to all!!
