Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Visitor at Dusk

After all of the rain we've had...the field behind me is flooded...I finally had a chance to mow the higher grass--first mowing of the year. I mowed the paths, too. :)

In addition to mowing, I worked at creating a large brush pile with fallen dead sumac trees and various other projects throughout the yard. Eventually, I ended up in the hammock as the sun fell below the horizon. Looking up I saw a lone bat swooping at insects. It made me smile. Now I want to look into setting up a bat house.

Even though it is a school night, I still was not ready to go in, and I ended up walking the paths one more time. The bat seemed to follow me and, as I've read about barn swallows, it seemed to be after the insects I must've been kicking up as I strolled.

Oh well, I finally came in...I do have to work tomorrow.
