Summer Garden Color

Summer, especially about this time in summer, the weather becomes awful. I dislike extreme heat, dry winds and smoky skies. There’ve been several fires around the lake area up north from here. I shouldn’t complain as many lost all they had except their lives! Unfortunately that black smoke does inevitably end up in the air […]

Animal Farm

Rabbit Knocks

With great stealth, he checks out the place… A scenario that keeps repeating itself.
Deer, raccoons, rabbits, squirrels, reptiles and rodents alike; they all have their beady eyes on my hard-earned flowers!

Very Big Snake~Surprise!

snake climber
I couldn’t fit the whole snake into the photo because she’s about 54″ long! I wondered how long she could hang there, bouncing on the wall. The branch in front isn’t holding her up. She held half her length upright! I’ll admit it was a little freaky to see!

I am struck by the same oddness when seeing snakes climb trees.

There’s something a little sinister about a five foot snake hanging off a tree branch, hunting for birds’ nests.

I’ve Come to Talk with You Again

Flower plans
My hands are feeling better and I’m even planning to pot up a few of these lovelies this weekend! The weather in my neck of the Golden State(California) has been very hot but tonight blessed fog is rolling over the hills and into the valley, cooling down the hills, valleys and us.

Hummer “the Hun” Hummingbird in my Tree Rose

cherry treesI couldn’t see into it because these tree roses are over 6′ tall. I’m 5’3″.
I couldn’t take a photo today because she is still all ruffled over things. I stuck back branches, geraniums, leaves, more sticks for her to feel comfy and at home again.
But I didn’t dare try flash photography on her or her babes today.
I’ll sneak in tomorrow if I can catch it without anyone on it. I am not sure if it’s both parent or not.
They seem to be everywhere at once so I now suspect they are both setting the eggs. We’ll have to wait and see.
I do hope all is well and she hatches them!
