My Wet And Soggy Sandarosa

This past week we had another little visitor that just hatched from the nest. 


This little snapping turtle was even smaller than the first one.
This is the first time, in living here over thirty years, that I have ever seen snappers.


I took him down to the old irrigation pond and released him.
I wonder if the two have met yet. 


It's been so wet and soggy here, we have been having an annoying issue with all the mosquitoes. We had to take down all the plants because they were hiding and breeding in there. Then when we would open the door to go into the house, they'd come right in with us. 

The caution tape is for the deer.
We put it up every night. So far it has worked like a charm.


The plants look a lot better hanging than on the ground.

We took all the hummingbird feeders down and sprayed the back of the house.


Several times.



Then we hung them back up 


for our frantic customers.

We still have hoards of hummers here in Hummer Land, but they won't be here much longer.

Anybody needing a hummingbird fix better get over here - El Pronto!!
