Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

A New Regular Visitor
I saw evidence of it before I saw the bird. Lately, it's gotten bold and is coming closer to the house. Sorry for the graininess of these shots. I had to take these through my window with the screens still on. If I'd ventured outside it would have flown. It's a beautiful Northern Flicker. I hope it sticks around because it ridding the lawn and garden of grubs.
