Passion Flower

I bought three passion vines this year and this one bloomed for the first time.  The other two new vines should be blooming soon and they will have red flowers.

Here are some blooms from a couple of existing vines.

Laelia Orchid bloom

I like to have various orchids planted around the garden.  They are such a pleasant surprise when they bloom.  Here is what I think is a Laelia Orchid.

Lazuli Bunting

This is the first time I have seen a Lazuli Bunting in the garden.  I noticed about 6-8 of them yesterday morning as I was leaving for work.  This morning I was able to take this picture.  My research says they summer as far south as Santa Barbara and all the way up into British Columbia.  Hopefully a few will stick around.
