Doe stepping out for a drink

Doe Drinking from Bird Bath_edited-1_wm

I took this image yesterday at about 7:30 PM.  She was behind a business located next to Forest Park Nature Center in Peoria Heights.   I used my camera, an Alcatel Pop Astro.  She sure was a pretty little gal and had just been drinking from the bird bath directly in front of her.

Male, American Gold Finch, picking seeds from a Cone Plant

This handsome little fella was very busy a few mornings ago. He was moving from plant to plant and I was lucky to catch him before he moved again.  Actually, it seems a bit early for Finches to be feeding on Cone Plants.  We generally don’t see them until the fall.  But, this plant got his attention.

A Row of Hostas

These hostas grow between our garage and the neighbor’s fence. My wife planted them a few years ago.  They are much bigger today.

This large Hosta, transplanted by my wife, Jean, from another part of our yard, is growing up against our garage.  It is really going to take over.

My wife grew these in our back yard a few summers ago.  They are annual plants and come in a few different colors.
