Marcia, it is so nice to look at pics at this time of year, especially when my yard looks so bland. I am so glad you shared the pic of the robin, complete with the duct tape! If it wasn't for my DH and his duct tape, this old house would fall apart! But I hate it!

I do still have snaps blooming and I think the dusty miller is really beautiful right now. Guess I should just take some pics anyway! I have a real interesting battle going on just outside my window here. I have feeder dishes on the fence and the squirrel seems to think they are his! He fills them up with pinecones to hide his stash and then the maggies and bluejays come by and throw them out. Mr Squirrel gets so mad, he literally jumps on the birds! Can't get a picture through the window cause the screen is so heavy. It is quite a production!

Thanks for sharing your pics! :)
