Looking down at his mate at June's bird feeder, "papa" Cardinal stands guard. Each bird takes their turn perching in this tree as the other one feeds. I'm pleased to have 6-7 pairs of Cardinals live on the property. They're my favorite birds. Click on images to enlarge.
In the Morning Light
This violet, which has completely grown out of my violet "forest" and is now vertically situated on the outside of the pot, is highlighted by the morning sun streaming in through my east windows. The buds should be opening up fully in a few days. Note the white "colonnade" GTO on the glass shelf below it. That series of GTO was only offered in 1973. I love Johnny Lightning's choices of odd cars to immortalize as scale models.
