Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

 Tuesday morning the first blooms of the day lilies opened.

I tried to take a selfie to show the flower stalks are taller than I am - so that's taller than 5'2".

I've never had day lilies that tall that I can recall.

The pansies are still blooming and the Hosta garden is filling out really well this year.

My stepping stones are being covered by creeping thyme.  This is the second season for the thyme.

The spider wort blooms in the morning and is loving all the rain.

I have a set of volunteer sunflowers that I hope the ground hog doesn't take out.

I managed to get to weed and deadhead in a window when the sun was out on Tuesday morning.  As I write this I'm still dripping from the humidity and the sky is darkening to bring more rain.
