On the bird front, the baby bluebirds have blue feathers on their wings and will probably fledge soon. The sparrows continue to build a nest in the other box the sparrow kind of way--messy.
The deer haven't been as prevalent this summer in the yard, but I did see a mother with two fawns passing through. It was fun to watch as the mother had to nudge one of them along. I guess kids of all kinds can be distractable.
Here are a few things I saw this week during a Second Look.
|This marigold is a volunteer from last year.|
|Coreopsis and blanket flowers.|
|The enemy has arrived-- Japanese beetles. We are seeing a lot more holes in things as they eat away.|
|Yellow trumpet lilies have joined the white ones that were blooming last week.|
|This squirrel is enjoying some of the old seed that Wally threw on the ground when he cleaned the bird feeder.|
