2 months have past......

......since we updated something on here. Bec is a slacker!
Here are pics in various order of timing of events. This blogging program is annoying with uploading pics and ordering them, scrolling, etc. Just live with it.

I did some bird surveys along creeks like this for 3 days. Some gorgeous places.

I also fell at this spot. Landed on the front of my right calf, >2 weeks ago, and it still hurts like heck if I kneel down on that part of my leg. Nasty deep bruise I guess.
My flower garden is growing awesome this year. I love it. Now if I can keep the neighbors cat from getting in there and killing things.
Purple coneflowers at sunrise today (13 June 10)
Butterfly milkweed. I want a lot more of this. It is native and a favorite food for, well you know, butterflies.
My Tennessee Coneflowers, yup, the Federally Endangered ones. Yes, this plant is on the endangered species list.

Grand view of one side.

At some point in Apr, B brought the kids for a night.

S doing something.

M making a good face.

M again.

J not sure if he likes girls or not yet. Girls are yucky and have cooties.

Since Bec works in an ER, I see this pic and think that a trip to the hospital is coming soon, but they were fine.

We went to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens on free day, along with a million other people.

Bec framing herself.

Wrens built a nest and fledged young in my "wren-proof" workshop. Humph! This actually resulted in the babies fledging and flying up into the carport above the screen (to keep birds out). It took 90 min and a butterfly net to get the dumb babies down and out. I also pulled out a lot of the screen to encourage them. It did result in me cleaning out all the junk the last owners of the house left in the carport "attic."

We went camping and hiking at Frozen Head State Park in early April. This is the view from the firetower. About 3 miles straight up to get there. Worth it though.

Me posing. This is the long hike day when I forgot deodorant. Lovely.


Bec at trailhead sign. We'd already put in ~4 miles at this point. Going down was way more difficult!
