Since Rachel's visit, I've found that traveling is a little too expensive these days so when you live somewhere you love, why not just stay home!
Unlike my little baby Bluebirds that flew the coop shortly after this photo was taken! He's giving me the eye!!
This mom can stay close to home, so I guess I can too!
The Summer Tanagers have arrived and the woods are full of
Robin-like songs of tweetle-dees and tweetle-dums.
The papa Cardinal is ever chirping a warning call.
Last year I planted wildflower seeds over my septic tank since it's difficult to mow there. This year new flowers are coming up that weren't there last year! It's such a wonderful surprise!
I also planted this Rue and a Fennel for butterflies to munch or lay their eggs on, hopefully!
I want a pond in my yard. Since I'm not financially ready for that I put a galvanized pail here last year and tried to grow pond plants.
I mostly grew algae, but the water was clear and this year I added a few "feeder" goldfish. I don't have any real good pictures of them yet, but I think they like their home in the bucket over the store!
My beautiful Bottle Tree is growing. I've got some clear bottles that will be replaced eventually but for now, the pink bottle from Deb in Helena is taking the top spot.
Thank you Bette, for my beautiful Tree! It is a wonderful focal point in my yard!
Here's hoping that if you are having to stay close to home, you're world is full of beauty and nature!
