Two's Company

Two's company...

Four's a crowd.

Photoshop can be handy when there are too many family members around.

Garden Party

Summer has been here for 59 days now, and it has been a very pleasant one, 
but it is finally showing its true colors with a few sultry days.

While everyone is trying to cool off...

a young female cardinal wonders what's going on in the flowerbed.  

It's a party, of course.  
The Salvia and Rosemary sent out fragrant invitations on the breeze to the butterflies and hummingbirds:

You're invited to a garden party.
Refreshments will be served as the nectar lasts.
Please wear your dazzling colors.

And so they have come, dressed in their finery.  

When the party began,
 the rosemary flowers were all standing straight as soldiers at Buckingham Palace 
and forgot to bend a few stems for the hummingbirds to perch on.  
Fortunately, there was some thin, rusty wire in the shop that worked for seating.

If you build it, they will come.
