It's been a while since I've had an update on our garden. The pond that we installed last spring has come into its own. The pond plants are lush, and the fish are getting big.
While rain was a problem early in the summer, now it's a long stretch between the rains that seem to pummel the north and south of us. We spotted our first two monarch caterpillars on Tuesday. The bluebirds fledged five babies in the early summer but did not nest again in either of our two bird boxes. A small flock of turkeys have spent parts of every day in our yard for some time now. The feed that Carl throws out every day helps to capture their attention.
And...we've discussed a new kitten, hopefully a young male which will negate Sadie's territorial issues and give Sassy someone to play with. Looking after the last week of September.
