Party at the Feeder

The hummingbirds had a party this morning.

Trouble with the geranium sprinklers caused both Ben and me to be outside at the same time.

Ben set up a new watering system which works so well that I often neglect my flowers.

As a result, when we did appear in their private space, they were very curious about us.

They took turns buzzing us.

They come within inches and look right at us.  They are little guys, but still, it's unsettling.

But mostly the hummingbirds do what they are there to do:  eat and eat and eat.

Bull Thistle

I have watched this bull thistle grow all spring.  I usually see it in the dark, since that's when I walk by it, but this morning it was a little later, and I used my flash.  This blossom is level with my face, and even in the twilight, it's beautiful.

I discovered this groundcover when I helped Ben fix the waterline to the timer for my hanging baskets.  I tried for two days to get a picture, but I realized these pretty little plants get about 2 minutes of sun a day.  I asked Ben what they are called.  He's so good:  Lamium.

Waning Crescent

I have taken a lot of pictures of full moons and lunar eclipses.  I am feeling that the waning crescent moon is under-appreciated.
