The Canada Geese have had a very good year.
Back at home, the hops vine is growing madly. It loves the climb, and the critters love it. Poor photo, but you can see the little tree frog hiding in the corner.
Then there is the Catalpa tree, in full bloom.
The morning cloak butterfly has been a regular visitor, but to the hummingbird feeder! Funnily enough, Mr. Rose-breasted grosbeak thought he'd check out the feeder, as well.
We have been serenaded by the Baltimore oriole in the backyard trees.
The dead elm trees gets many visitors, what with the bugs, where they sing lustily! Cedar waxwings and nuthatches.
July 1st, I woke early. Annie was playing with a mouse on the bed. I picked it up, to put it outside, and spotted a skunk. Sitting outside, playing on my computer, I spotted a buck.
Finally, let me vent. This man drove up behind me as I parked and got out of the car. He was talking on his cell phone (illegal), then left his van running (never heard of climate change) while he ran into the general store.
