A Second Look--July 31, 2013

Here's what I saw this week during a Second Look.

While some tiger lilies are still blooming, many are dropping their petals as you can see behind and to the right of this one.

The hydrangea are still going strong.

These two begonias were both yellow when they were planted. However, the one on the right was exposed to more sun and turned orange.

While some day lilies are done blooming, a few colors are still making a show.

The ever-faithful spirea.

These celosia are all volunteers from last year.

One of the sparrow eggs has hatched. When this baby first hatched yesterday, it had no down on it. I have seen a lot of growth in just 24 hours

I found four more eggs in the bluebird nest. That makes three clutches in one season. This is an unusual but not an unheard of occurrence.
