Flowers, Swallows, Pigs, Sheep, and a Beautiful Reflection!

I spent my weekend planting my flower boxes.  Hopefully
the wild rabbits will leave the flowers alone this year.
Last year the rabbits had a feast on my
freshly planted boxes.

The swallows showed up this last Friday, I love it when 
they arrive.  They are excellent mosquito catchers.

Every spring the males try to get the females to take up house in my multi 
unit bird house, but every year the females reject the house.  I think community 
living is not for them.  I wish a pair would stay and take up 
residence, they are so pretty.

I had a chance to go to a little garden shop in Kenai, 
The garden shop also had little piglets and sheep in residence.
I loved this little pigs sleeping arrangements.

The sheep were very tame and came right up to the fence in search of a 
good scratching.

I was very happy to oblige them.  

I thought I would leave you with a beautiful view of Tern Lake.  It was a non 
windy day and the reflection of the mountains was spectacular.


  1. I can't believe you came to Kenai and didn't call me.....

  2. That reflection is awesome. Hope your flowers ,although very pretty,will not entice the rabbits.

  3. Wow! What a beautiful photo of the lake! And the flowers, and the sheep and the pigs and the birdhouse!
