The baby birds are gone. Yesterday was the first quiet day in a while. I missed those little squeaks so much. It seems much too soon for them to be gone already. I just hope they left in a good way and it wasn't a predator or something. They still seemed so tiny and fragile. Anyway, I've always been completely fascinated by birds nests. Even with a step ladder, I couldn't reach the nest so here's a peek through the branches. Isn't it lovely???
Here, all nestled in the heart of suburban hell, I consider us lucky. We actually have some tall hardwoods in our backyard. Here's a peek looking up through the canopy. Of course, a picture could never do justice but still....
One of our first Cherokee Purple tomatoes.... (HOW EXCITING!!!)
Since this is my first year growing cantaloupes, I am learning a lot about these plants. They seem to suit my rather Type A personality. I love how each branch of the plant sticks almost perfectly straight up. They also seem to be perfectly spaced. And there's a tiny little yellow bloom at the bottom of each one. Oh no, this means a TON of cantaloupes, right?
