Birds, Bees, and Butterflies

Spring is an exciting time!  We are excited by the diversity of life here, and work to promote and encourage pollinators and wildlife.

 Each year Ken has robins in various places on the farm - two in his tool shed in the field, one in the Nanking cherries by the garden, one in the wood stacked on the driveway, etc. They come back year after year.  Today he came in to tell me of a new nest with tiny  birds in it.

I went out to get a photo and I think this is one of the parents arriving with food.

And with camera in hand, I looked for new flowers blooming.  Instead I found a beautiful butterfly, 

and a bumble bee.  And I thought, "Go Pollinators!"
