Chickens and Serendipity

Chickens and roosters continue to flock to my house. 
Recently the mail brought me two older charts, "Cluck and Doodle" by 4 My Boys, and "Folk Art Rooster" my Mosey 'n Me.

On the gardening front, in June as I finished up my plantings, I had three or four "extra" perennials, so I just plopped them all together in a wooden bucket.

Verbena bonariensis

Delphinium elatum "New Heights"

Penstemon "Blue Spring"

Ta-Da - it looks like something I planned!
The colors, the different heights and textures - all work great together.
Sometimes...serendipity wins out!
At least until the deep red lobelia "Compliment" in the bucket begins to bloom...

This morning a brush bunny and a deer met up...the photo is blurry,
but if you look closely you can see the bunny at the edge of the gravel just to the left of the deer.
