Check Out This Handsome Little American Goldfinch! (4 photos)

Caught this American Goldfinch eating the seeds from a Bull Thistle. If you look closely in the bottom three photos, you’ll see Bumblebees enjoying the thistle flowers, too.

Painted Lady Butterflies (3 photos)

We had a Painted Lady Butterfly irruption year – a year in which their population dramatically increases.

I had been seeing them for the past several weeks as I was working on our fire pit in the back yard, but this last weekend I only saw a few. So we must be at the tail end of the irruption.

Painted Lady Butterflies are amazing! Here’s a few fun facts:

• They go through their entire life cycle (egg, larvae/caterpillar, pupa/chrysalis, and adult) in less than a month!

• The adult Painted Lady Butterfly only lives about two weeks!

Enjoy the photos!

#GirlPower Retaining Wall

With the end of summer approaching, I finally finished my last yard project – a retaining wall around the fire pit.

My niece helped me carry all of the brick and pea pebbles to the back – took two days to do that. Took me another two weeks to dig out and haul all the dirt and sod to the top of the hill.

Right toward the end of my project, I injured my knee. So, I’ll be taking it easier, enabling me to post more blog posts and photos!

Here’s a before and after photo of the #GirlPower Retaining Wall!
