This is our empty Robin's nest. All 3 of our babies have fledged and I hoped I might see a hide or feather of one of them but I haven't. I want to keep the nest, wouldn't it look cool in the kitchen up on the wall near the ceiling with a little bird perched on it.
My neighbor's peonies are just gorgeous. I have seen several bushes of them around town of various colors. They smell like heaven.
My tomato starts, all 47 of them are repotted in their own little personal peat pot. A couple of ladies at work are interested in a couple of plants and so I will share the bounty with them.
Our new umbrella which did not receive any use today because the sun was selfish again today and would not show itself.
The Professor and I went to the Burr Oak Woods Conservation Center in Blue Springs. I had never been there before. Outside the center they had a butterfly garden with the plants and flowers notated, which was really cool. There was the lovely pond also as pictured above.
This is the flower which I really loved the Horsemint Bee Balm. It was so delicate looking and the subtle beautiful color was just enchanting.
This is a Columbine flower. I loved the color and it seemed to grow wild out in the wooded areas.
This wild turkey was scratching around on the ground and would occasionally stretch it's head up to take seed out of the bird feeders.
These are beautiful indigo buntings, the picture is blurry but their color is amazing and beautiful.
American goldfinches also visited while we were there.
There is a paved half mile path that winds through the wooded areas. It was so peaceful and serene. One could picture what Missouri looked like 300 years ago!
Trees and plants were identified which was so cool. This is a shagbark hickory. I was excited by the bark.
You can see the Professor in the center of the picture. The plants, trees and shrubs are quite thick in places. He is about 30 feet away down a curvy path.
Overlooking a dry creek bed was a wooden overlook and the layers of rock were even beautiful.
I felt like I had walked into another time and place.
I nicknamed this tree the "elbow" tree. It didn't appear to have any branches removed, it appears to have grown this way.
I think these were primroses. They were growing right at the edge of the path.
Professor and I really enjoyed our stay that Burr Oaks. I could feel God in every step I took and every living thing that I saw. This was my Garden of Eden today. God Bless Us Everyone.
