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

New Life

Despite my silence, things are happening in the yard...some nature's doing...and some mine (but many projects of mine still remain undone).

It is hard for me to believe that the bluebird pair not only built a nest, but also laid eggs, fed the young, and fledged them...and I've yet to post about it.  Well today, that finally changes.

Trying to keep things in chronological order ended up causing me to delay some posts until I'd posted what happened earlier.  So, chronology be damned.  I'm finally posting SOMETHING so that I can give this blog some new life.

Speaking of new life, aside from the bluebirds, I watched robins go from eggs to fledging.  Currently there is a pair of chickadees with seven--count 'em--seven hatchlings...and two pairs of tree swallows with nests.  Unfortunately, I'm limited on pictures.  Some of the egg pictures didn't turn out well with my new cell phone, and others are "misplaced", but I'll share a few.  Hopefully, after this post, I'll get back to posting more regularly again.
