Wildlife Wednesday

The only signs of wildlife I see on the hill these days are chipmunks and the neighbor's black cat that just wandered by.  I figure the deer and birds are busy birthing babies ....  Soon they'll be showing up at the birdbath -- oh, I forgot, I need to get a new birdbath ....

In the fauna department, I'm looking out at rhoddy remnants.  They always make me think of giant spiders.

Rhododendron Remnants

 There is a lot of new foliage coming on in place of the blooms.  The Mahonia are loaded with berries.  The deer don't seem to like them as much as day lily buds -- go figure!

A couple of months ago I asked if anyone knew what this is.  No response.  This is what it looks like now.

Any Ideas?

Stems are about 12" tall.  I still don't know what it is.  Lenton Roses and Soloman's Seal are through blooming.  We'll enjoy the foliage the rest of the summer.

Soon to show color:  clematis, astilbe, and coral bells.


Coral Bells

Life is good on The Hill!!
