We are also so fortunate to have a nice lot with about 20 oaks on it. It's just a normal sized lot in Keller - North of Ft. Worth - but it's an older neighborhood. Although we love our home, really what caught my eye was the established garden and the many trees. The hostas, the daylillies, the irises ~ they are all pushing up! I cannot wait for the peonies to start showing themselves ~ they are my absolute favorites!
For a few days now I have been watching, and HEARING, the male cardinal with his very loud song, and the female cardinal with her persistent clicks. This morning, I found the nest! It's right outside of my living room window. I cannot wait to keep an eye on her as she lays eggs, and eventually the little baby cardinals arrive. The male is keeping a constant song vigil - I wonder what it means? Is he marking his yard? He starts early ~ too early for me! I'd like to be a late sleeper, but that's not possible with him around to claim his territory!!
