Sorry about the suet cake...but it looks like Mr. Oak is growing a beard and eyebrows...can you see them?
Poppy noticed it yesterday...a dark spot over each eye and a beard. He even has rosy cheeks! Back away and it is even more evident. We will keep an eye on this fellow. He stands looking at the kitchen window.
Mr. Duck, Mrs. Duck, and "Shelby" were kept busy at the feed cups so "Theodore" could eat in peace...I really don't want to change Fiona's name!
Later, back at the pond...
The herb garden is beginning to look a bit better...some of the seeds are sprouting...Basil and Parsley. Not the best looking fence I've ever seen. It should keep the hens out. It is probably too late in the season to be starting these herbs...but we'll see.
Chives and Parsley in pots...looks like the chickens have pecked on these chives, "good grief"!!
It is very dry here now...after all that rain, day after day...now bone dry. I rescued three tomato hornworms up in the garden today. :) Is it the Braconid Wasp that lays eggs on this poor worm...I can't stand to see that...
I hope to see these become hummingbird moths. Am I right about this??
Not much of a post, I know. Thank you if you've stayed this long!
