The bumblebee bed is starting to get a little crowded! The forsythia has already bloomed, as have a few daffodils that I put in last year. I'd like to put in more daffys for next spring. I don't know if I'll put in colourful annuals this year - on one hand I'd like to - on the other hand I'd have to go fight for the seeds or plants. I am wondering if there is a perrennial I might introduce, perhaps next year, that would have blooms that would be not yellow and not blue/purple. Perhaps something that blooms red?

A surprise this early afternoon - this hummingbird enjoyed checking out the speedwell.
