In The Garden Today
It was a stupendous Maine day – warm weather cool breeze, and a chilly night. There was lots of activity in the garden.
There were all manner of hummers. Hummingbirds…
Hummingbird moths – or clearwing moths…
I love the way you can see her holding on to the bloom here for a sip.
Such sweet little faces for an insect!
Okay, the bees were buzzing, not humming – but busy all the same.
Despite all the pausing to snap pictures on the stupendous day, I managed to give the chicken coop a coat of paint. Not bad work for a Saturday!
