I went out to check on the cucumbers. When I got near to the trellis they are on, something moved quickly and I was not sure what it was. As I was reaching to see how big a cucumber was, I noticed this little wren fledgling sitting very still. He was probably about 10 inches away from my hand. I went back in and got the camera. He was still there. I got a couple of pictures of him.
We are getting lots of peppers, but some of them are supposed to turn colors and I don't remember which ones. :)
We have only had a couple of ripe tomatoes so far. I bought some from the Amish though. Nothing like a summer tomato just off the vine.
This is one of my Georges. The tip of his right wing got messed up some how. I don't know if something messed with him after I left him on my wreath or what. I am not sure what to do for him. He keeps flinging himself to the ground. I put my hand under him and he climbs on. I put him back up on the flowers.
I am so excited about our apples this year. We are going to have some apples of our own. I love to go and just look at them.
We will also have a few peaches. This poor tree has been through the wringer. Half of it fell off one winter in a storm.
I know that you can tell things about the coming winter from things in nature. I am not sure what any of this means though. There are HUGE nuts on the hickory trees. There is more than normal and they are earlier than normal.
