|Ladybug on the climbing rose, 'Joseph's Coat'|
The rose, often blocked from view by my husband's truck, is the first to bloom in my garden this season.
|The rose grows up the stone-fronted chimney above a grouping of succulents (previously featured in my favorite plant combinations post)|
Unfortunately, annoying furry visitors don't confine themselves to nighttime stalking expeditions. There are daytime stalkers as well.
|I saw this fellow from my office window sitting on top of the Xylosma hedge staring intensely at something|
|Then he moved forward to the Ceanothus hedge|
|Then he sought a better view from the mimosa tree|
|A wider view shows the focus of his interest|
|Seconds later, his goal is achieved (but he looks disappointed to have found the feeder almost empty)|
