Their vineyard is a 4 minute drive, I love it.
I never noticed Kunde's planting the poppy's between the grapes vines in the past.
Believe me everyone stops here off hwy 12 to photograph.
Rows and rows of poppy's, what more could I ask for?
Sparrows that frequent my birdbath.
Could I ask for more?
This poor little lady.
She had 3 eggs in a nest I could see out a window.
They hatched, she was ever so attentive, with her mate.
One morning I look to see three babies are GONE!
There was a fox on our deck last night, I am not blaming him, but oh gee.
I know the Towhee's jump out of the nest first, but these were way too little to jump.
Seeing no struggle with the nest in place, I can only imagine.
So the Towhee continues to live in our yard.
It is natures way, and she must know it.
They frequent the ground feed, and love to stand on the big rocks.
This photograph was taken with the Quail on my roof, and THROUGH a window!
Their colors are so vibrant in the evenings as the sun goes down.
I don't think it gets any better for me sitting outside in evenings with this entertainment.
