Bats Have Returned

Our resident Western Pipistrella bats have returned to spend the summer hunting insects from the sanctuary of our front porch roof. They seem to be about two weeks early this year.

There is a serious explosion of Penstemons underway this year in our yard. However, a year ago today a heavy thunderstorm with graupel was pounding away at the flowers. Nothing like that this year.

  1. There's that graupel again! Some of my earlier-blooming penstemons are growing bloom stalks madly, in just a few days of >40F overnight lows. I think the same one as yours'...maybe next week?
