Here are a couple of visitors to EllGab Garden Central.  From what I can ascertain through research, I believe they are pale goldfinches.  This is a very small bird, perhaps smaller than a typical sparrow.  It is migratory in nature but there is a pack of them that have lived here at the garden for a couple of months.  I took these pictures through my new spotting scope.

Please tell me this is a joke!  :-\
Nope. These onions were tooo.....well, I'm not really sure. Round? Hmm. Algorithms are terrible at sexy.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

The pale goldfinches are still hanging out at the feeder.  A typical house sparrow can be seen at the bottom of the last picture.

Nice! We have blue birds flying around. Yesterday I was sitting in a chair on the deck and a hummingbird flew up to the right side of my head, about a foot away. He spun and looked back and forth at my husband and I, then zipped away.

Hummingbirds are so fun to watch!

It isn't all that often when you see a nicely defined hole in a cloud, but there it was, right over EllGab Garden West.  The overall shape of the cloud kind of looks like a dog's head, the hole being its eye.

I think it looks more like a moose @Rikki Gins

The cloud is great but I'm more impressed by the beautiful blue sky.

@ShayP  To be honest, nice blue skies are as rare as hen's teeth here at the garden.  Awhile back it was totally overcast, and yet there were some clouds that formed, and they appeared to glow.

I didn't get to take any pictures of county fair plants this year.  Here is one from a couple of years back, showing someone's ornamental pepper plants.
