Although we live in a very populous area, we have a big back yard. This year we've seen a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers and a pair of nuthatches bring their children to the feeder. They've been here in the past but this is the first time to see babies.
There was a bumper crop of poppies. They must like all the rain. Also have robust sunflower growth. Fewer larkspur due to the landscaping done last fall. These 3 plants all reseed wherever and lead the ignorant to believe we put effort into the garden.
