It's that time of year again.

Shy little muguets hide in the shade behind the air conditioning unit.
Notice the little back leg digging into poor Husband RJ's forearm. He's never quite succeeded in taking them out without some blood-letting.

After a bit of a struggle, our little buddies are ready to watch for birds at the feeder station. VeggieGirl came by to wash clothes and hang them on an impromptu clothesline strung between the grape arbor and our sturdy Japanese chestnut.
Summertime and the living is easy, as Janis Joplin used to croon.

Is that some sort of retaining "wall" between cat and bird?

It's the Kitty Walk. A little shop-worn these days, but still good enough to attract my little buddies.

The chain-link fence is not for the birds, but to protect Husband RJ's gardens every year.

Unfortunately, the deer jump right over: no problem.

Great post . . . I especially love that digging back paw . . . My grandmother's fragrance was Muguet des bois . . . Remembrance of things past . . .
