Early Morning Visitors
Good Happy Thursday Morning!! I had some early morning visitors today - Mama bear and her 2 cubs. The cubs were playing on the deck and then decided to climb the tree and play on the roof. Mama was watching anxiously from the neighbors yard and calling them to come with her - but they decided - NO! They played for awhile then climbed back onto the tree and went to the top for the days nap. Mama is not stretched out under another tree also napping until they decide to come down. I just love them and especially love them in my yard even if they are a little mischevious and sometimes make messes - it's worth it just to have them so close.
I have included a photo of my butterfly bush that I planted last year - it made it through a freezing winter - looked like dead sticks after the snow melted in late April, but grew beautifully and looks like the butterflies really do like it.
And a rose I finally coaxed to bloom this year. This is our 2nd full summer in this house and while there were roses planted, they had been neglected. I don't know the name of this rose, but it is very large bloomed and beautiful. I hope you enjoy the photos.
Have a great day
