Monday Leftovers

16 May

I’ve been playing with the camera, and I have a lot of pictures I haven’t shared because it’s also been really busy.  So today is all leftovers!

This bobolink must be new because he’s awfully shy.

Bees and a Bird

20 Jun

The weeds are still out of control where the magnolia tree was.  I know it’s shocking that I haven’t gotten around to getting them cleaned out of there.  Hard to believe it used to be a well-tended flower garden, but goats and dogs…

I have to say, the other day when I was hanging laundry out, I noticed that when I walked through there, it seemed to be buzzing.

It is swarming with bees.

All kinds of bees.

And the occasional butterfly.

Anyhow, I do still plan on getting them chopped down, but now I’ll feel guilty about it.

The wren was in the maple tree above the mess.

Hopefully, next year I can replace the flowering weeds with horrible, nasty seeds with some beautiful flowers and herbs that they will love just as much.
