A Second Look--June 19, 2013

Most of the week that we were gone, there were heavy rains. However, these didn't seem to affect the yard dramatically. The grass grew taller, and more of the same flowers bloomed. There is mixed news on the baby bird front. All of the baby sparrows died in the nest while we were gone. The theory is that something got their mother. However, we have four new eggs in the bluebird nest. Such is nature.

Here are a few things I saw this week during my Second Look.

Hydrangea, Endless Summer

Blanket Flowers

This Carolina Wren sings to us every morning.




I saw only one mourning dove recently, and now another one has joined it. I assume they are a mating pair.
