Year Of The Apple?
I have had this apple tree for about 18 years that has never produced an apple for me to eat. A couple times it produced a few blossoms, but they somehow have never produced an apple to eat. This spring it had about 150 blossoms on it, and I wondered if maybe, just maybe, that I might get a few apples to eat. The 150 blossoms led to about 40 tiny apples, which led to about 8 walnut sized apples, and in the end, AGAIN, nothing! I guess that I will just have to keep buying them at the store!
I was taking some sunset pictures when a flock of Trumpeter Swans decided that they wanted to get in the picture too!

A nice flow!
Just one of the birds out of a flock of Bohemian Waxwings that ate all of the apples off of our flowering crab tree.

Waiting For His Buddies
We usually get a lot of Pine Siskins around the yard in the spring and fall.
Mr. and Mrs. Loon were being very protective of their young one that was diving under the water looking for a meal.
This House Finch was looking for a little dessert after a meal of sunflower seeds.

It seemed that there were a lot of Damselflies around this summer.
