Quail

Click on the photo to see it at its best.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 10, 2024
We were very surprised to see a Northern Bobwhite Quail, Colinus virginianus, eating the seed spilled underneath our bird feeder!

Have a wonderful weekend!

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

"Know ye that the Lord he is God; it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful unto Him and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations" Psalm 100:3-5

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, June 2024

The 15th of each month is Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens

I am in the northeast corner of Mississippi, USA zone 7b

My Althea, Rose of Sharon, is just beginning to bloom.

And the Elderberries are nearing the end of their bloom time.

A recent purchase: Balloon Flower, Platycodon grandiflorus

A wildflower: Spiderwort, Tradescantia

I bought Marigolds to be companion plants for my Tomatoes.

And, yes, my Tomatoes are blooming, too!

For a look at things to come...

...the Tiger Lilies will soon be blooming.

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Thankful Thursday: Figs

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 13, 2024
I am thankful to see small green figs on our Fig Trees. It will take about a month for them to get ripe, and then, pick and eat fresh from the tree!

Have a blessed day!

Katydid

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 5, 2024
I think this must be a very young Katydid because its wings are not yet fully developed.

Have a wonderful weekend!
