I'm reading this one now, mostly on breaks at work. But it's more fun to read at home where it's peaceful. :)
It was cloudy and cool when I got home from work today. Just starting to sprinkle, but I took a few photos. This is my backyard. You can see on the right where my yard ends and the "meadow" begins. (Taller grass.) My kids took down all of the pasture fence, so now I call it a meadow.
Sumacs give me lots of privacy. The Heartland Trail is just on the other side of these sumacs, but you wouldn't know it.
My little Prairie Smoke flowers are back! May they continue to bloom and multiply! I think they're so cool!
I was going to say these were Tansy, but no. I'm not sure of the name, but Tansy is more of a little button shaped flower.
Very tall sumac in the background.
The view of my house while standing by the sumac bushes.
The little light green plant in the lower right part of the picture is another box elder. I like them because they grow very fast. I haven't had a problem with box elder bugs.
My very slow growing garden. We've had a lot of cool, rainy weather, which seems to be slowing the growth of my garden. I suppose we'll have a burst of heat soon and it will take off.
I thought this little whirly-bird's spinning tail might scare off some bunnies and deer. Unfortunately, it takes quite a gust to get it to spin! I bought a pink one for Audrey and Hazel. I'll plant it in their yard the next time I'm there.
There are some sunflowers and peas growing around the cream separator.
May God's blessings and peace surround you all!
