Baby Barn Swallow

After returning this little guy back into the nest TWICE already, (with gloves) I was minding my own business, watering the garden when I looked up and here he was "attempting" to fly right towards me, with his mother chasing him!! He zig-zagged back and forth and then ended up in the radish patch.

Soooo cute!!
We love having the barn swallows live here every year! They are very amusing :)

Late PEONY Harvest

Just harvested these "late" Pink Peonies~ All of these blooms are from only 2 plants (and there's over 40 left) that are growing on the north side of the house so they bloom much later than the other peonies. I'll make bouquets with most of them and dry the rest~

Mmmmmmm they smell Wonderful!!
