The birds are chirping, the squirrels are chattering, the dogs are barking, the ticks are sucking....Such a pretty morning.

So, I thought some pictures of what is going on out there might be in order.

The hydrangeas are pretty this year: This is an oakleaf

...and this is a macrophylla.

Believe it or not, those are all on the same bush! I used to have a burn pile up the hill and it appears to have done some strange things with the PH of the soil. Such a beautiful mistake.

This is a Kalmia Latifolia (Mountain Laurel). I found three of them for seven dollars apiece on sale and just couldn't resist them. Looks like they are pretty happy (This pic was taken about a month ago). Don't you just love the buds? I think that I probably should have rotated that picture, but it still comes across, don't you think?

And, of course, the obligatory butterfly on a coreopsis bloom:

So Miss Wifie is just off to Jekyll Island for the week and I just don't know what to do with myself...All of the great things that I could be up to...and I can't think of any of them!

Isn't that just the way it works?

So what are y'all up to?
