Invisible Bikes and Mountain Laurels

My contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #88. I was going to count the suet cage as a 'fence...'



But I can go with a mountain laurel roundup instead. The front two look great.


Next over is a recent transplant from the side of the house, where it languished a couple years. All things considered, it's doing well.

And here's mountain laurel #4. In May, this one was doing the best of all of them. But then it developed this brown spot leaf disease over the summer, and it still has it. Does anyone know what it is, and what to do about it?

P.S. I'm also linking to N.F.'s Trees n Bushes 35.
Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

You are so clever and creative. I love the idea of the caging on the feeder as a fence. It works well and keeps out those we want to keep out.

I just love the little chickadee doing pull-ups! Fantastic shots. Good luck with the mountain laurels (they're kalmias here). I had a beautiful one which flowered heavily for a few years, but it died - too hot here for it, probably.

Happy Sunday.

It was really great enlarging these pics on my IPad. The chickadee hanging upside down on the cage is so cute ... a and so typical of them! They seem to work so hard for their seeds!
