Plants and Flowers

Rose Bud

Although I always plant roses for the way they smell, a brilliant spot of color doesn't hurt.

Red Hot Poker

Blooms in June here. Great for early hummingbirds.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Looking like Candy Corn on a stalk, these flowers bloom early enough to attract Broad-tailed Hummingbirds during their nesting season before they have discovered my feeders.

The berries of this climbing vine with beautiful fall colors attract Bluebirds, Flickers, Starlings, Townsend's Solitaire, Robins and other birds to my yard.
