First of all I'll say that I hardly ever make mistakes, and on the rare occasions that I do, I will pretend that I didn't. But in this case since it was in black and white (see post "Patience finally pays off") and more than one person saw it, I guess I'll have to own up. All this time I've been saying Red-breasted Woodpecker when in fact it is a Red-bellied Woodpecker. There!! It's done!! Let's move on now!!!
Watching the bird feeder this morning, I have discovered that Red-headed Woody and Red-bellied Woody both like zucchini bread whereas Brown Thrasher and Bluejay do not. Both woodys will take big chunks away with them and thrasher and blue keep coming back to see what they're missing and keep getting disappointed over and over again.
Rabbit hopped by the flower beds looking for something to nibble on but decided the veronica, salvia, and stella lillies were not to his liking and since there are no petunias over there, which he does like, he moved on.
Squirrel climbed down the telephone pole and tasted 3 different clematis flowers before he decided he didn't really like the taste of them (I could've told him that before he chomped them) and went back up.
Spider webs have not been a problem this year until the last couple of days. Usually all summer long you walk out the door and no matter how careful you try to be, you get silky threads in your face, your hair, and everywhere (remember, Arizona brat?), and your car is covered and practically glued to the ground with them. Not so this year. Don't know why and don't care why, just happy about it.
Mosquitoes are a problem!! Even in the middle of the day they attack while you're trying to pull weeds out of flower beds. Simple solution...don't pull weeds. Works for me.
