The Western Territory.

So sweet…happily finding seeds amongst the clover.
Oh look! The pine squirrel seems interested in inhabiting some real estate closer to the squirrel.
Hmmm…it would appear that the big boy squirrel maintains strict boundaries and has claimed this territory as his own. Have no worries, this ended peacefully.

The Imposter

Hmmm, I wonder if this is grape jelly or purple soup?
Did I hear something down there?
Don’t mind me, I’m the jelly inspector, just here to do a taste test to make sure yours is edible.
Who do you think you’re fooling? If you’re an inspector you’d be wearing a name tag..you’d have a badge you could show me, get back!
LET GO OF MY PERCH! I’M GOING TO NIP YOUR LEG, DON’T THINK FOR ONE MINUTE THAT I WON’T!

I have to quit listening to these bird conversations, I get so stressed!

Butterfly daze.

I’m really going to miss the butterflies when they leave for the winter. The good news is that in the next few weeks, I’ll be planting a bunch of plants that will feed them next summer. I’m actually putting in two “butterfly bushes” and the hummingbirds will love this too.
