Autumn Pictures
These are pictures from yesterday's walk around the yard.  Among these are my birdfeeders.  It's important to have different kinds because they attract different birds.  I also have a suet feeder but I usually don't fill it until the weather gets cold.


The metal birdfeeder is in the forest garden near the hopper feeder.  It appeals to small and medium perching or ground-feeding birds.  I finally saw a flock of sparrows on it this week so at least now they really know where it is.

The hopper feeder hangs in the forest garden near the metal feeder.  It appeals to small perching birds.  Larger birds have a hard time fitting on such narrow ledges.  The squirrels do fine, though.

The fly-through feeder hangs in the birdgift apple tree between the house and the south lot.  It appeals to perching or ground-feeding birds of pretty much any size.

This is the septic garden.  Most of that green stuff in the middle is burdock that repeated applications of herbicide failed to kill.  >_<  However, the sedum did great, the lamb's ear is still going, and so are a lot of the herbs along the south edge.  Overall, an improvement over bare dirt and a few weeds.

This is the serviceberry on the west edge of the yard.  It's one of the few trees showing any color this year.  Normally that thing is blaze orange drifting to red and purple.
