Well, here it is deer hunting season in the northland of Minnesota in November! And luckily, for these babies and mamma, only bucks can be taken this year.     As you might remember, I saw these triplets at the end of my driveway on August 10, 2015.

Sunny Morning Glories Blooming in the Fall

Here it is almost the end of September and my sunny morning glories are just now blooming! They were severely stunted during some frosty May mornings early on this season, when we had a hard frost and are just now rebounding from that trauma.

Wicker Woman Leo B-day Gal

What a lovely way to spend my birthday this morning, sitting out on the back deck enjoying basking in the sun and watching all the wild birds and hummingbirds at the feeders! But as you’ll notice, there’s nothing left for seed in the wild bird feeders in the back row there. And wouldn’t you know, not a single hummingbird at their feeders when I took […]

Jack Jungroth’s 1988 Father’s Day gift

Since my dad, Jack Jungroth passed away on June 7, 2011, I can no longer send the card, send the Father’s Day gift, or make the phone call on Father’s Day like I did for years and years.

The hummingbirds arrived in northern Minnesota over the weekend! I spotted my first tiny little one at the feeders on Saturday, May 16, 2015. I didn’t get a picture of that hummer and had company until this morning, so was happy to see them back again. Check my snow covered deck on May 19th!

Happy Holidays 2014-2015

It’s highly possible that this might be my last blog post for 2014 so, I wanted to make sure to wish you all Happy Holidays 2014-2015 right off the bat. After hubby passed in December of 2012, I still had many, many chair caning and basket weaving classes that I was committed to in 2013. So that year was really a blur of activity with […]
