I have spent hours watching the birds flock to the Bird/Peace garden.  Especially since they started migrating south, the feeders have been packed with a variety of species just passing by, joining our resident cardinals, sparrows, wrens, titmice, chickadees, woodpeckers.  The hummingbird feeder is being drained at record-pace.

I don’t think much about taking pictures when I’m bird-watching, but today I wanted to snap some shots for blogging and grabbed my Nikon with the long lens for the purpose.  Lo and Behold! there were pictures on the camera from Spring when the rose-breasted grosbeaks migrated through.

Photos below were taken this morning…

We finished the melon-and-pumpkin-bed Addition… I have to brag that this cost us $0, built with leftovers from past gardens…  It’s still a work-in-progress, of course, but I am very happy with it.

It’s definitely fall here with high temps in the mid-sixties and plenty of sunshine.  Out in the Edible Garden, there’s a mess of green beans, about a dozen green tomatoes, and nearly as many bell peppers to bring in so I can take down the plants.  The broccoli and the late-sown beans are okay to stay for a while longer.

Keep on Growing…
