FEATURING THREE APPLE TREES
|An Apple Blossom Gateway into the Blueberry Field offers delicious fragrance and nectar for birds and bees.|
|This little male Ruby-throated Hummingbird showed up earlier this year than ever before. He arrived on May 5th!|
|Looking west through the Apple gateway up towards the house, gardens and Rock Maples|
|While the Hummers sip nectar the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker maintains his Apple sap holes along the trunk.|
|He’s off to the Crabapple Orchard!|
|Apple and Rock Maple trees at the edge of the North Garden just outside of the Crabapple Orchard|
|Looks like this will be a great apple year for this older tree|
|A male Northern Parula visits the North Garden Apple tree . . . my first sighting!|
|The Northern Parula has the perfect bill for opening buds.|
|What a clever bird! He will help me have pest free apples.|
Flower Hill Farm is intoxicating right now . . . even with all the rain. I will be posting simple photo posts over the next few days, so you can see what is happening.
I would like to share a new blog with you all. Carole Sevilla Brown has created yet another blog Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens. I am honored to be invited to join the team of dedicated and talented authors. I hope you can visit and see my post on an amazing Great Blue Heron rookery I visited recently.
