promised to show my first Cloud Reflection baby, and here it is.
I’m as excited as a new grandma! You can tell I’m just an

wouldn’t be fun anymore.

sibling showing a bright orange color in the bud that will open next week sometime,
not surprising as Oktoberfest is in Barbara My Love’s genealogy.
blossom to open is one on the lowest branch, a little unusual. Top bud
will open tonight or tomorrow. Unfortunately, the background includes the
tomato cage and bird net I have to use to protect it.
