A Second Look--August 13, 2014

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

This flower is courtesy of the birds. They are randomly popping up in a lot of places.

This is the third kind of hosta that has started to bloom. The others are almost done.

The surprise lilies are right on schedule this year. Not much of surprise, I guess, but very welcome.

It was getting dark when I took a picture of this balloon flower.

The baby wrens have flown from the nest. It was about a month from the time the eggs were laid until they left.

This nest box has housed successful broods of bluebirds and wrens with sparrows fighting and losing for a chance to use it in between. The wren's nest is on top of the bluebirds nest.

I'm seeing more deer recently in my yard. This one was standing guard for two does and two fawns.

This baby bunny was laying very still in the grass. I don't know where the mother was.


  1. That bunny looks so sweet. We don't get very many rabbits in our yard, but I occasionally see a couple on the lawns of our church. Do the rabbits do much damage to your gardens?

    1. Sometimes we have seen baby rabbits playing in the mornings like kittens--they are so fun to watch, but this year we haven't seen so many. That may be because the fox population.

      Yes, they do eat things in the garden. They particularly like beans. However, they don't do as much damage as the deer.


What do you think?
