Mostly wordless–lots of photos

This morning I did a few miscellaneous gardening chores, things like deadheading daylilies, and raking up piles of weeds left over from the square bed renovation, and planting the daylilies I had dug out of it. I had just set them where I wanted to plant them, and then it poured rain, and they sat out all night–but they seemed fine this morning, so I plunked them into their new home. Then I just wandered around taking photos. Here they are:

Early on cool mornings I often find the bumblebees just sitting like this head first in a lily blossom--Sleeping? Dreaming?

We’re leaving for a ten-day trip to New Brunswick, Canada on Monday, and planning to visit some gardens there. I’ll be posting again when we get back!
