we finally made it to homer's farm saturday, but he wasn't there. seems we missed him by a half hour. oopsies! i know he has new bees and chickens, but we'll have to wait till he's there to get the full tour on the new farm critters. there wasn't much plantings to see quite yet, but i did spot some green tomatoes - yum! you might think it was a wasted trip, but there is always something wonderful to see in nature if you look hard enough. scroll to the bottom to see what exciting critters i found on this outing. :)
do you see why i am in love with yellow rocket? swoon!
maybe fried green tomatoes next week!
the bees were so very happy with the wildflowers growing in the as yet untilled land.
this beauty would not be still for my camera, but i am grateful to her nonetheless. without her i never would have spotted . . .
this guy! eeps! another hummingbird moth! my third lifetime sighting!
and then i chased this chubby butt around for a bit before leaving. i have developed quite a thing for bumblebees as well. this one had a different patterning than the usual suspects, so i wanted a photo for my collection.
