    This guy was pacing up and down that stem. I wonder what he was waiting for.

    Perhaps he was looking for a girlfriend. These two sweethearts made a connection....

    This is my Bryonia dioica--a new plant in my garden. He has not yet really begun to seriously grow and is already blooming quite a bit.

    I forgot to post this close-up of the Kapucijner pea flower.

    The Kapucijners are doing really well this year, probably because of the general coolness of the weather and I have been keeping them watered a bit extra.

    I was plucking extra plums off in preparation of the June drop. I was looking from plumlets with the tell-tale black spot. The small black spot is where a worm entered the plum, so they can be removed now. The plum tree will drop tens of fruits off as a part of their normal thinning of procedure...I always help out though as I would like to get some plums that are a little bit large, not fruits smaller than a golf ball.
    Here you can see the miscreant half way in.....or out--however you see it.

    And finally this strawb with just the first, faint blush. Nature's perfection, I never tire of.
