A favorite fall photo of
Audrey watching a moth that came in through the window on a cool October day.
This was taken three years ago at our old house.
I checked the tomato plants this morning and sure enough there were loads of wee tomatoes for tonight's salad and pizza. The large tomatoes are all done now but I'm sure there are still 100 little ones to pick.
The mouse house had visitors again today. I had just cleaned up around the well; moved some plants from the pump to the fence and cut the grass when low and behold our rather large turkey family came by for a visit. They have been staying around the back of the lot lately; eating where the perennials are. But they always love to check out the grass after it is freshly cut. I cannot get too close so the photos aren't great but to be honest, I don't want to get too close to them. They have grown so much that I can't tell who is who anymore. They are all as big as the parents.
I am so happy to see the mourning doves back at the feeders and a family of five blue-jays. The chickadees are still the friendliest of all and everyone is making the best of the new feeder.
(chickadee)I'll be adding suet this winter and will share a great recipe from my friend, Susan at http://proseccoandpolkadots.blogspot.ca/. The birds devoured it.
