As I fill my calendar with the  graduation activities of my high school senior and bird feeding assistant, Patrick, I know my favorite month of the year will fly by faster than usual. The arrival of Baltimore Orioles brought an almost psychedelic frenzy of color to my backyard this weekend---behold the power of grape jelly!

Mother's Day Visitor

Mother's Day began with an early morning visit from an Indigo Bunting. I love blue and every time I see a bunting's iridescent  color it feels almost mystical.  (Photo courtesy of Mike McDowell). This is the second year in a row that an Indigo Bunting greeted me on Mother's Day morning. Later in the day, I began my Mother's Day ritual of extreme gardening. I could barely stand the birds' chattering as they expressed their disapproval of my decision to garden in the area of the feeders.  After moving to another area of the yard, an American Robin happily carrying a beak full of  clippings gathered from the flower beds vindicated my presence in the birds' yard.

  1. I bought a good overall home improvement lawn care book, there are lots of illustrated books with basic step by step instructions. Tried to follow the guidance but still stuck on something. I have been reading a lot of related blogs these few days. I have read a lot on this topic, but you definitely give it a good vibe. This is a great post. Will be back to read more!Lots of info on Landscape Services web site I found.
