This Week Around the Yard 6-1-11

A Second Look around the yard this week found a few new things including a rogue maple tree sprouting in the gutter. We clean them out at least twice a year, but the maple seed must have been determined.  Otherwise, most of the spring flowers are starting to fade and the summer flowers are beginning to bloom. The holly tree has just about finished blooming and I never noticed before this year what an aromatic smell the blossoms have. In addition, the heat is bringing out the bugs which can be annoying at times, but the all important bees are noticeably buzzing.

Note: If anyone can tell me the name of the yellow ground cover, that would be great.
