    Little Bird Woman & Knockout Roses

     

    Hotter than Hades the last few days, in the 90’s, and the flowers and I are wilting fast! Hopefully, tomorrow’s predicted rain will materialize and cool us all down again. So, a quick stroll to capture the blooms of the day as they may not hang on for long in this heat.

    And what extra surprise did I find ?  To my delight, bumble bees have made a wren house into their new hotel! I had been planning to make a pollinator hotel. Looks like they beat me to it.

    Each day, something new. That’s what I love so much about gardening: the constant change and anticipation.

    Happy Gardening!

    p.s.

    One of my readers identified my little inherited statue as “Joy” by Isabel Bloom and they are on the Internet at http://www.ibloom.com/  But, I think I’ll keep calling her Little Bird Woman since I have been  for quite some time and it fits her.
