Large flocks of
are the prime winter
feeders and generally
remain through March
|The month of May brings more purple blooms. Abretia, hosting a caterpillar (left) and wild Grape Hyacinth (right).
|Sunny days were few and far between this spring, so I painted an encouraging sign to the sun. A new nursery-grown Clematis brightens things up.
|The second critter arrived on Saturday, April 26, 2008 Gracie, found on the highway. Unlike the moose,
Gracie becomes a permanent resident. See more pics at her webpage here.
April brings new critters;
the first being a young
moose grazing the
neighborhood after a
long winter. See more
pics of him here.
