What's Blooming Now, etc.

Lepidoptera Family, your table is ready, Asclepias Tuberosa is now being served

Clematis "The President" weaving in between Milkweed and Coneflowers.

Penstemon "Husker's Red" and Nepeta "Six Hills Giant"

An anonymous Columbine still getting it done. These have now spread all over the yard and have been blooming since early April.

An anonymous Coreopsis

The Serviceberries are almost ripe, the birds have really been checking them out.

Whoa! Looks like the deer is not too happy to see the skunk. I can't tell you how many times we've been awakened in the middle of the night by skunk spray being pumped in by our our conditioner unit. I can assure you it's not pleasant.
