Yesterday after I took pictures of the Medina Bird, I took some photos of the yard. The camellias are still blooming, the azaleas have gone crazy, and the wisteria is in full bloom. I love the wisteria when it is flowering, but really it is a weed here in the yard. We spend hours x 100 trying to get it out of the other shrubs and bushes. Yet for a few brief weeks it is lovely.
I found a bee busy pollinating the azaleas. Papi swears that the azaleas change colors each year, but after eight years I am not convinced. Who really knows what the bees do because the pollen is so thick here that car washes advertise: Is your car really yellow? You can see some of the powdery film still on the leaves below, but that is really nothing because it is what is left after a day of torrential downpours.
