But, today, we had a guest arriving at 2pm, so we stayed home and cleaned up, cooked, then entertained. So, you all get 12 pictures taken around the house... examples of what we have to offer here in Western New York State.
First, the flora...
|Rhododendron - the last blooms|
|Beacon Silver Dead Nettle|
|Happy little Hosta|
|New Blue Spruce|
|My Big Backyard|
And, now, the fauna...
|Mackie - making sure we don't have squirrels or chipmunks in the yard|
|Can't see me|
|CHUBBY (and comfy) Gold Finch|
