Yup that is our temps nice and cool with very low humidity . It has been fall like here just lovely . I cant believe it is the last week of August already my goodness where do the days and time go ? ! It has been pretty low key here , Papa has been busy with work and Miggs and I have been puttering during the week , enjoying our long walks in this fresh cool air for sure ! With the comings and goings of birds the yard has been busy as has the feeders ! The Grackles have left with their babies now but the Blue Jays have returned as has the sweet little Chickadees . The hummers have been fighting over who's nectar feeder is who's all though I have a total of 4 out there for them as well as the Oriole feeders which they seem to have taken off to now ! The Eastern Blue birds are about but very skittish I think they are passing through though as they don't seem to stay in one place for long . Starlings are flying in huge flocks over the valley , Crows are active again . lots of pray birds soaring over the valley looking for food and the Monarch butterfly's have been hording the wild flowers in the field beside us more so now . The crickets , Cicadas and grass hoppers have been very vocal to . Over the weekend Papa put my tractors name on her for me , he got a new paint sprayer and it works wonderful and no over spray at all he said ! He hook's it up to his air compressor and it works like a charm !
I know , weird huh ? I like it though good job Papa !
I have been taking photos of all kinds of things, as this time of year as the seasons start to change the land and nature seems to as well so many different things to photograph and well it is just what I do to pass the time when all is said and done chore wise lol .
There are hundreds of yellow Cabbage moths around and White ones but the yellow ones seem to stop and rest more lol
Golden rod galore in the ditches and fields . I love the look of it and how it flows in the breeze they are all over
5 feet tall !
Lots of milk weed in the field beside us to but no Monarchs are on them as they seem to prefer the other wild flowers this time .
I love walking through this field with all the grasshoppers jumping in front of me the sound of them and all the crickets deep in the grasses as the field hums whilst it also rustles in the breezes and butterfly’s of all kinds and moths flutter about .
Huge wild Aster flowers all ready to bloom as they compete with the Golden rod for sunlight and are also over 5 feet tall !
Back in the yard the squirrels have been collecting food and hiding it preparing the for changing season to come and keeping Miggs busy lol !
Most of the garden flowers are coming to an end whilst others still thrive any where they like !
The Sparrows have been taking a lot of baths lately and gathering at the fountain bath !
Hummy has been busy zooming from feeder to feeder and then rests in our crab apple tree which is getting it’s berries growing again and the leaves are slowly changing on it already .
Our White paper Birch trees leave are also beginning to change !
The sun sets over the valley have been lovely to and I have noticed the sun sets earlier now at about 8pm and it rises later at 6:45 am now .
Well by the look of Miggs snoozing here that’s all I have for today , the long walks just tier her out lol and chasing critters of course and playing ball lol ! Thank you to all who wished Miggs a happy birthday on my Sunday post Miggs was happy to have all the wishes and she got a lovely special piece of cake to lol !
The air and land is changing , nature is shifting about , harvesting has started on all the farms , kids are back to school here on the 8th of September after our long weekend coming up and all are preparing for our next season of Fall starting September 23rd !
Any who , I will be off now, don't want to bore you all to much lol .
Until next time .
