Life in our Neck of the Woods




Good evening, hope everyone is 
well and safe.
We are plugging along here.

Since we have been home daily, 
I have noticed things that probably 
would have been missed had I been at
school. There are days we feel like we 
are living in a nature preserve. :)

According to my neighbor the bird 
above is a Red Headed Finch.


Our resident bunny was out one morning, 
exploring.


I know it is hard to see but in the tree 
on the branch that is banding up, there 
is a Falcon--again according to my neighbor.
She flies around a lot , her nest is farther up 
in the tree and we see the male too. There has 
been bird mating too! :) She is pretty cool to 
watch.


A couple of Sundays ago this happened in 
our backyard. Last Fall our neighbor gave 
us the boards, we stored them over the 
Winter.
One side will be for Mr. Ken's tomatoes 
and Peppers and the other side will be my 
side for flowers. Should be fun. We will 
make covers for each box so the critters 
don't tear up our work.


Hello!

I think we will start blooming now.


I might wait a day.


Sunday's bloom.

My neighbor gave me these, basically 
we plopped them in the ground. Wasn't 
really sure if they would bloom, much to 
my surprise they did!!! My other neighbor 
gave me a pot of different ones today. I'm 
hoping I can fit them in with these. The one 
I got today is called Siberian Iris. No clue 
what the ones I have that are blooming.


That is it from the Nature Preserve. 
Take care.

  1. Oh, it will be so fun to have that box garden!
    By the way... I have found that the variety of iris that you have there, smells like grape cool~aid when they bloom :)

  3. It was fun seeing your nature preserve. How cool it would be to have a falcon nesting right in my back yard. I would love that. It's fun to see how gardens in other parts of the country are coming along. No buds on the iris here, but seeing yours makes me excited for when ours will bloom.

    1. Glad you enjoyed. It has been fun to watch the Falcon, haven't seen babies yet but I bet there will be soon.
      It is always fun to see what others do in their yards/gardens. We all have different climates so it is fun to see what flowers grow where.

      The Iris was nit happy with our storm yesterday, when I can get over to them, I'll need to check on them.

      Hope your day is going well.

    1. Can't believe it is May. But glad it is.
      Kansas and our county will begin opening in phases in the next weeks so it will be interesting to see how that goes.

      Have a great day!

  5. Your iris made my day. We've had beautiful blooms all over this year. Take good care!

  6. So glad to hear! I was very excited to see them bloom, our soil is not the best and so it was a bit of a guessing game if they would bloom.

    Take care!
