Yesterday was a gloriously cool day and I spent just about the whole day in the yard working for a while then stopping to rest and take pictures. It was a wonderful day! It was made even better when I finally spotted a monarch in the my flower garden! I've been waiting and watching for them!
I've seen a lot more hummingbird activity in the last couple of days. The female is more bold than the male. She comes to the smaller feeder near the patio and the male prefers the one that is farther away.
My son and I removed two trees from the yard yesterday. One was a maple tree that was planted about five years ago. It was not healthy and was quite ugly. The other was a Bradford pear tree that was not in a good location and was not healthy either. It agonized me to remove trees but it was really for the best.
I've really enjoyed the cooler temperatures these last couple of days, I hope it last a while longer!
