I thought woodpeckers pecked trees and metal rain spouts, but not this guy (gal?). He was hard at work at the pavement in the alley. I quickly snapped this pic and, in a attempt to get closer, chased him off his hunt. I believe he is a Northern Flicker Woodpecker.
We are not all perfect and some of us have vertical gardens as evidence. My interest is piqued by one that sits behind a neighbor’s garage in the alley behind my residence. Learn how to make a vertical garden of your own.
On this past sweltering Saturday, we decided to head out of town to Larriland Farms to pick some fruit. It’s so rewarding to gather your own fruits and vegetables and then cook them into meals and treats. Food always tastes better to me when I know I’ve really worked for it. And oh the tasty possibilities of a simple strawberry!
