Flatwoods, Kentucky

Here is a bluebird sitting on our tomato stakes, her nest overlooks the garden. According to my father, she's becoming more tame and won't fly at you any longer when you approach the nestbox. I did have to crop the photo some because she was still too wary for a close approach. I've tried to not portray her as being very colorful, the female is quite drab in contrast to the brilliant color of the male.

I bought seed for pole beans, cantaloupe, watermelon, and a few other things. It has begun to rain again but hopefully we can get them out tomorrow. The seasons all seem messed up and the 90 day crops will push us up to cool weather now.
