Down on the farm

Actually, it's not a farm...just our little yard
But we have 'maters!
And Marigolds

 Zinnias and Verbena

 Pinky the Pet Geranium, being threatened by Cypress Vine
A few more daylilies, fixin' to bloom
One of the last of Ellen's Double Orange Daylilies
And LOTS of birds!
 Young Grackle, trying to get along with a host of House Sparrows
 Dove and Sparrow, observing rules of personal space
This dove? Not so much...just crashed the party!
 Juvenile Robin, rebelling against the notion of self-feeding!
 Pop giving Junior a talking-to, and a bit of worm...
 This fellow knows how to eat
 And so does this one!
 This lady enjoys Pink in the evening...I guess she had Purple for lunch
And the swifts patrol constantly overhead, thinning out the insects
This cute little Bumble steals a snack
And in the evening, we take delight in seeing the occasional little toad coming out.
Life is good out back!

Renoir or Van Gogh would love your back yard!
