We have had so much rain in the last two days. This morning my husband asked..."What is that big yellow ball in the sky?" It seems so nice to have the sun again. I had errands to do and then home to help mow the "field" The grass had grown so much. We struggled through it and now it looks pretty again. Before starting the mowing, I had about a half hour, while hubby was making adjustments on the lawnmowers....so I just sat by the huge aster plant. I watched to see what was going on in the natural world. There were lots of visitors to the plant. Bees, flies, butterflies, moths, and one ugly japanese beetle...(aren't they supposed to be gone?)
The hummingbird feeder is just behind this huge plant and the hummingbirdies were flying, buzzing, and dive bombing me. They are so active this time of the year. I read yesterday that the males leave first, then the females, and now we are left with the young. They don't seem to like the asters, but the new nectar is perfect. Early this morning I had done my birdie duties. Made new hummingbird nectar, emptied the thistle feeder and refilled. Later today I will fill all the other feeders. The natural world can sure keep a person busy this time of year.
