Evening in the Back Yard

The only thing missing from this picture is me! This is one of my favorite places to sit and enjoy a nice glass of merlot.  Many nights we have big wind, but tonight is calm as can be.  The humingbirds are well into their warring, buzzing around each other.

My yard is officially snow free (for now anyway!).  We spent last weekend raking the back yard and cleaning up all the dead grass that the voles had torn up.  We ended up putting down 3 bags of new grass seed and 7 bags of soil to cover the damaged area.  We still have the front yard to do, but at least we have a jump start on the back yard- now we just have to get the sprinkler system turned on this weekend. You can see over in the corner by the trees all the fresh dirt.

Evening is also a great time to observe the humingbirds.  I have to tell you that my new lens ROCKS!  check out some of these close ups! 

 

 

 

 

Ozzy and Noah playing Tag- or keep away, Im not quite sure.  But one thing I do know- Ozzy is much faster than Noah!
