It Feels Like Summer Already in Americus

It's hard to believe it's only May 22. Here in Americus, the school year has ended and the temperature, in the shade on the porch, is over 90 degrees. This morning our first course for breakfast was double chocolate almond scones. I think this is my most requested recipe as they are "melt in your mouth" delicious.
Our guests had a fresh fruit medley of kiwi, strawberries and freshly picked blueberries. The main course was a salsa omelet with cornmeal buttermilk pancakes made with stoneground organic cornmeal and nonfat buttermilk, of course.
One of our cats brought home this new friend to play with. It's a good thing they are not allowed in the house!
Some black-eyed susans making their debut in the side yard.
The first of the red cannas started blooming today.
The cannas are taking over the entire bed and we need to start weeding them out, soon."Fried banana" hosta is a variety that thrives in sun and is doing beautifully next to the Black Elephant Ears. I'll take some photos of them when they are a little larger.
The first lantana flowers from the back garden are a pink variety.
This butterfly was feasting on the pink echinacea. In this photo, you can really see the antenna.
Here, you can see its proboscis inserted into the flower.
Thanks for visiting the Americus Garden Inn today.
