Islands of trees amid a sea of corn.
So simple, so lovely, yet the dreaded enemy of gardeners and farmers.
The dogs and I walked the length of our lane today. A lovely day after a month of almost daily rain. Everything is amazingly green. Ireland, step aside, nothing is greener than spring time Illinois after a prolonged rainy season.
This little wren chose the bird house right outside the dining room door. How can such a tiny bird have such a big voice. He sings all day long with very brief spells of quiet while he grabs a bug for the family.
Cedar waxwings, juvenile robins, and a catbird spent the day stripping the ripe fruit off my amelanchier.
