Winter  Spring  Summer  Autumn

 

Mainly it is about the wildlife whose existence around our home follows a somewhat predictable pattern from year to year but still manages to be full of surprises with no outcome  guaranteed. Since the first sighting of Flying squirrels in 1993, we have been fascinated by the variety of the wildlife to be observed and studied right here on our half acre. I have chronicled some of that activity for the last few years in a number of different formats. This year the schema will be simply a page or multiple pages for each of the four Seasons. Follow the adventure by selecting each Season from the menu.


August, 2010

In Camelot, the line in the song, July and August cannot be too hot sounds indeed like a  true fantasy too good to be true. This year the heat in the mid section of our country has indeed been merciless. Certainly here at our location, this has been the case. A record breaking summer of above  average temperatures and the most 90 degree plus days on record.

The Flying squirrel visits have once again been on the wane but they are still here , just not in the numbers of a month or two ago. I thing probably there are more ripening fruit in the trees to their liking rather than sunflower hearts and peanut butter, offered nightly on the tree feeder.  The Hummingbird numbers have grown as they usually do in late summer and once again the Bee, Hornet and Wasp legions provide the aggravation and  competition for the sweet water.
