The largest moth I have ever seen. It was hanging on our Webber grill leg by the wheel which can give you an idea of how large it was. Do you know what kind? Tell me if you do.
Bluebird eggs. The mother laid them in one of the lowest with the worst roof in town birdhouse that we have sitting around our yard. They have hatched, I peeked, but I cannot get a good picture of the babies.
Grandsons hitching a ride behind grandpa on his way out to water the garden.
A bumblebee made out of a bowling ball by my middle daughter for me. It was my Mothers Day gift. The Ladybug below that was also made by the same daughter for a previous Mothers Day gift. I do not think I have shared them before, but I should have, they are treasures.
My back rose arbor is full this year.
For some reason I have one branch that is a lighter color of pink.
Grandchildren, a niece that was visiting and a daughter catching frogs out of our back pond.
One of my granddaughters having the homemade ice cream grandpa made for our 4th of July gathering is in the picture below. Our two daughters with children and a Nephew and his family that were visiting from out of state had spent the day at Lake Michigan "The Big Lake" as we call it here in Michigan, and then came to our house for a cookout and ice cream. This sweet girl had gotten water in her ears and had been tipping her head to the side for quite a while when I took this shot.
And lastly, I have been working on a shaded pathway that is wooded and runs through the side yard. Yesterday while out shopping some of our local barn sales and primitive shops, I found this sweet angel on sale and brought her home to add to the front of the pathway.
The next picture is on the opposite side of the pathway.
Do not know if you can see the hens in the next picture. I had read it is best to take your outside pictures early or later in the day. Not sure if that works in the shade. I have been adding hosta, fern and other shade plants along with some annuals for color. If I turn my back for a week the woods grows back in and the hens scratch holes around the plants.
This wire basket is standing midway along the pathway. I usually line it with a basket liner but it had disintegrated over the last couple of years. So I decided to save some money and just put the plants in individual pots that I already had on hand. I really like the look and I think they are doing better in the their own containers.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you many blessings from our home in the woods.
