Just a couple almost focused morning pics to cheer up a pale, slightly chilly November morning. Fuzzy bumblebee claiming a dahlia. And I was happy to catch this big fat 5inch fully open Crimson Glory rose bloom, backed by several Belinda's Dream ...

Two more "planted". We've found these are not really good birdbath stands for our location. Either lsrge birds tip the saucer off or squirrels. We'll see how they do as planters.

When the spouse discovered she'd married a herb/veggie garderner, she thought if she bought hybred day lily I'd take care of them. She followed my lead: in the winter order off for the seed catalogs. When the day lily catalog, she gasps ...

Here is an interesting plant which has found a bed it really likes. It is a native of the southeast where its popular name is Skyrocket. I had planted one which lived long enough to bloom and drop some seed. Some of that seed dropped into a raised...

Hi All, I am new to this group. I was hoping someone might have some advice for me. I have mosquitoes in my yard. Most unpleasant. I never leave standing water near my garden. A friend suggested I build a bird house for purple marlins but I have a...

Birdhouses & Grackles. Two of our "gourdhouses", already occupied by sparrows, now are housing nesting Grackles. Linda is NOT pleased. I'm fabricating additional traditional birdhouses out of that scrap fencing. But I'm not sure how close to each ...

Some of what's going on in my garden : I don't know what the red berries are , but I suspect they may be poisoness because neither the squirrels nor the birds eat them . The tiny white flowers are also unknown growing on a bush that was part of the ...

My chemistry is right. I have a light fuzz of algae growing on the walls, the water has cleared back up, I think that I have raccoon proofed it. The first 50 fish have mostly survived (feeder goldfish). I counted 10 dead over a week. Everyone ...

Today I noticed th rowan trees in the neighborhood. Both are heavy with fruit, those orange berries. Besides being very decorative trees, they also predict the severity of the winter to come. So, it looks like we will have a very snowy winter to ...

So. Enjoying the heat & wine & pretzels. Forgive me if these posts are getting boring. I re-potted a rubber tree & some other tropical tree we got at a tennis match years ago. That's a concrete bird bath behind it. I can sit here and watch all ...

Amazing Kniphofia. I volunteer for the BLM/San Juan Islands National Monument and about every 2 months I go to 5 sites and do a download of trail counters. It's an all morning exercise (the island is bigger than most realize) and on the way back I ...

I really like unusual plants. One of my favorite is the Monkey Tree (Chilean Pine - ). I planted a 5’ tree when I lived in Seattle (getting it home was a funny event) and when I go visit the city I drive by and my tree is now some ...

We've been working on making a new flowerbed, and started building a raised bed last summer. Unfortunately, it's been raining so much here in Virginia, that we weren't able to get the soil till a few weeks ago. Otherwise, we'd have been paying for ...

Last spring my begonias had a Pine Siskin nest in them. She raised two broods there. I've moved but I will put out the begonias again and hope some little lady will like it. This is the nest and eggs in my begonias and the newly hatched chicks. The...

We put a "habitat" garden in our yard mostly to attract humming birds and butterflies. After 5+ years we've let it expand and connect with the woods behind our lot. It's amazing to see the variety of birds, pollenators, and fauna that now visits. ...

My crab apples "Red Sentinel" often linger right through the winter, they cover the tree and look especially good with snow on them, or as here in bright winter sun. You could cook with them but they are beautiful just to look at, and the birds love ...

I thought that I heard it raining several times when I was awoken during the night. Sure enough this morning was wet and damp. So much so that all the snails had climbed up the nearest tall plant to avoid drowning. I must have plucked fifty of the ...

Posted by bigpawbulletsDay 7. Nest is getting a bit crowded. Temps are rising and sunny wx. Ground is turned over in garden beds close by her nest so worm hunting is optimal.

Posted by bigpawbulletsSo: Question for the gardners/naturalists here: Is this typical sparrow behavior?

Posted by bigpawbulletsDay 4: Filling up the nest. Taking naps between feedings. Everyone is looking pretty healthy. Any name suggestions?
