Well thanks!  The pictures are from a digital camera, and I think it usually
reproduces color pretty accurately.  I'm familiar with the problem of blue
flowers coming out purple on film; sometimes blue flowers actually come out
bluer than they really are with the digital camera (like those geraniums.)

I'm not real happy with my gardening on the large scale.  Two or three years
ago I spent most of my effort on vegetables and was happy with ornamental
plants if they lived.  I'm trying to move things around and make them look
better -- it's getting there.  I'll show some of that next time.

Newark, Delaware -- I would have thought it would be about the same climate.

It was in a shrub in the backyard, about four feet off the ground.  I was
hoping they had just left the nest!  We never see cats or other predators
(except our two little dogs) in the yard.
