There’s a lot of activity in the magnolia tree in our back garden right now. The bright red berries are attracting a variety of birds including flickers, robins, cardinals, and this bluebird who was nice enough to pause briefly on our woodshed roof for a photo op.

About Today’s Photo:

I spotted this mottled yellow maple leaf just beneath the surface of Fargo Brook yesterday. The recent rains have given the brook a voice once again, and it’s nice to hear it after a summer of barely murmuring. In the 30+ years that we’ve lived here, I haven’t seen the brook as consistently low as it’s been over the past few months.

About Today’s Photo:

Blue bottle gentian is a common native flower that blooms this time of year. Its tight buds make it difficult to pollenate, and only certain critters can do it. Note the neat holes near the top of one of the blossoms: this is were a bumble bee has chewed its way in to get to the nectar.
