Star of the Yard

The star of the yard last week and this week are the two Elderberry bushes we have.  Both volunteers of  course, but they have bloomed wonderfully this year.

This Week

Neat bird nest Richard told me about over in the mae yard...He said a dove had been using it

snail on a leaf over by the garden
We kept Jack and Emily today just because we wanted to.  They were obsessed with this basket of seashells...and there on the table is a book on seashells I found...They enjoyed that too. They were listening to the ocean in this larger shell!

I saw this stinkhorn in the mae yard this morning....odd thing to see and was surprised to see it..I took this mid-morning..

Later this afternoon here was another one coming up!
 Later this afternoon it was already wilting

Had a definite odor to them, so they earned their name!

The Weekend

Sadly, I only took a couple pictures this weekend...Richard cooked four slabs of ribs ...we had some but the real reason he cooked some was to take some to a funeral dinner....

 bloom on a Rough-Leafed  Dogwood I believe it's called.  these sprouted up several years ago between us and the neighbor....
