Well, Brian and I have really been working hard on the yard for the past few weeks...
We have planted a red fury, begonias, petunias, royal carpet, cosmos, cat grass, and a few other things. While cleaning out some old flower pots last weekend I found some sprouts growing in the leftover dirt. This dirt belonged to the people who owned this house before us... So, they are kind of mysteries. :)
Red Fury. Pre-bloom.
Mystery sprout #1.
Mystery sprout #2. (Pretty sure it's the same as #1... But I found them at separate times.)
Mystery sprout #3.
Here is my Royal Carpet after just one week.
Our yard is in full bloom of tulips. :)
Here's a close-up picture of some Rose Breasted Grosbeaks. I absolutely LOVE these birds. I was talking to Brian about them literally the day before they showed up. We have at least 3 males and 2 females. (Pictured are two males.)
Here is a Red-Bellied Woodpecker.
Maggie and her boyfriend!
That's all for now!

- I live on 6 deeply wooded acres in the boonies of Middleville, MI. I'm married to an amazing man, Brian. He's pretty much the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm a big animal lover. I have 5 cats; Bella (6), Cognac (3), Georgia (3), Maggie (2), & Auggie (8-9mos.) We recently lost our kittens, Aesop & Amelia, to a battle with Feline Leukemia. I feel the need to mention them. They were amazing beings that showed unconditional love like no other cats I've had. I also have Cheech (9) that I'm fostering. We have two puppies; Charlie & Henry. Having a blast! I'm a dabbler in photography, photo shop, & crafts. I'm kind of a bookworm/nerd/geek. Yes, I have read the Twilight Series. No, I'm not obsessed. I love Shakespeare, Nathaniel Hawthorne, C.S. Lewis, and L. Frank Baum - among others, obviously.
