I like weeds

I scattered a lot of wild flower seeds around this summer. Not sure if this is one of them or not. There were a few interesting, unusual wildflowers. I'd say 98% didn't come up. This box of seeds obviously did not adhere to the "growing like a weed" philosophy. I'm definitely going to till first next year before sewing the seeds (I know: "duh!"). We had a bumper crop of black eyed susans but I can't take credit for those.

Enjoy it while you can!

Wow! These guys are really hungry! They even pester me in the yard. It really unnerves the family. The hummingbird has given up. This must be why the feeder only cost $2. Defective design - no doubt.

Close Encounter with Red Tailed Hawk

I saw this red tailed hawk on the side of the road. Not sure why he was just hanging out there.

Bike to work? Is it far?

I am actually considering this! It could be fun to have a bike at work. Handy too! And it's free! It is about an 18 minute walk from the bike lockers to the building I work in. Here's half way - looking back:

But, it is a pretty walk/ride.
