With summer time upon us, here are some of the flowers we have blooming in our back yard as of early July.

Not quite Longwood Gardens, but it’s home and we enjoy it.

Also, for the first time, a pair of catbirds have been hanging around our yard and the neighbors’ yards all summer. I was never able to locate the nest, but the catbirds’ young just fledged.

As many of you already know, here is what a catbird looks like. A photo by Terry Sohl (copyrighted).

And, inspired by her imagination, here is a sketch of a catbird by Katherine McDowell Patterson (also copyrighted).

Try to find that in your back yard!
