Indigo Bunting


Even though these beauties have been around the area, having one visit our feeder regularly is a first. What a vibrant color—a pleasure to watch.

Unusual Iris

These little arrangements were on the tables at my friend Barb's retirement party yesterday. I was excited when Amy, Barb's daughter, gave me one to bring home. I don't think I've seen an iris like this before. The flower looks like a wild iris, but there three or four iris-like flowers on each stem. perhaps there were purchased at a florist so not native to our area. Beautiful flowers.
