A Second Look 6-22-11

A Second Look around the yard this week found several new day lilies blooming.  Also, there are pictures of one of the squirrels eating from our suet feeder. After several trial and errors, the squirrel has perfected his methods. He hangs on the feeder, bends upward to take a bite, then hangs upside down to chew it.

Mulberries are starting to ripen.

Balloon Flower (Platycodon) You can see from the buds on either side of the bloom why they call it balloon flower. The bloom got a bit washed out from rain the night before.

Up for a bite.

Down for a chew.
