On the Back Porch

This squirrel came looking for the bag of birdseed some creature got into the other night, and the bird is the last of the babies to leave the nest.

When She Gets in Front of the Camera

The light on Stella as she sat on one of the steps was nice and even, so I asked her to stay there while I grabbed my camera. She ran off to get her planner and pen, then sat and posed. I think she was going for an angsty vibe.

Caught It

At various times throughout the day, any one of the kids can be found outside, often with a Frisbee or ball of some sort in their hands or in the air.

On Their Way

I check the tomato plants for horn worms every day. So far, so good.

Good Light

Stella agreed to step outside late this afternoon so I could get a shot or two.

She's Busy

Yesterday it was gardening, today: preparing a meal in her outdoor kitchen.

New Flowers

When Stella and I picked up Bridget from the garden center yesterday, we did a little shopping. Today, Stella used her new shovel to help me put my purchases in the ground.

Nice to Meet You

A new bird showed up out front this evening. According to my "Pocket Naturalist Guide to Maine Birds," it is a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak.

Yesterday, I added this wine bottle holder (which I bought last year to use as a photo prop/background at the homeschool prom) to the flower beds so my roses would have something to climb. It seems that the squirrels now have something to climb.
