And here they are:
One of the joys of a new home is finding surprises like this at the side of the garage! I sent this picture to my dil and she immediately emailed back "Naked Ladies". I thought that was a little odd until I looked it up and, sure 'nuff, this is a type of amaryllis!
I am also enjoying pears from the tree in the back yard. Sammy the squirrel is getting more pears than I am, though. He delights in eating a few bites, then dropping the remainder on the ground. One barely missed Daisy dog, so she avoids the pear tree now. I pick up the wormy and squirrel eaten ones each morning to add to the composter, but discovered yesterday that bumble bees like them, too, when I got stung!
Nature is truly amazing and I am constantly delighted with new finds in my own yard.
The birds have found their feeder, the humming birds are enjoying the feeder I put out for them and Sammy Squirrel is a constant delight and nuisance to both Daisy dog and me!
Hugs to all my Sparkies!
