Greetings from the Garden!
We all seem to be having garden challenges these days. I hadn't been working in the back yard for weeks because we had a mama catbird scolding me every time I was out back. I like catbirds, I think they are fun and I love their call. But this Mama and her baby were about as loud and vocal as a bird can get. We had a cardinal family living in the Weigelia bush and they never made a peep when I was out. Anyway, the baby is grown-up and I feel better about working in the back yard.
Fun Fact: The catbird is not listed as a "state bird" anywhere in the U.S. It isn't given this honor in Canada either.
According to Wikipedia, the Northern Cardinal is the state bird for 7 states, including W. Virginia, Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, North Carolina, Kentucky

Happy Flower Friday!
This week Alice shared a photo of her nasturtiums. Aren't they sweet? She loves the round leaves and I do too. They sort of remind me of water lily pads!
Some beauties from Sue's garden:

Reading a Quilt
Last week, my husband I took our dog to one of our favorite parks in a nearby city. The park features a waterfall and wide creek; my husband was pleased to see some fly fisherman casting along the waterway. "Let me explain this to you..." he said to me. I'm not a fly fisherman like he is and it was fascinating to hear how the "fly guys" choose where they want to position themselves. My husband concluded this lengthy discourse by telling me, "this is what we call reading the stream."
