A Pretty Time Of The Year In The Mountains

 We have a family of wrens raising their young in this bird house. When we lived in Tallahassee, Fla. we had a hurricane go through and it dropped 5 very large oak and pine trees on our house poking holes in the roof. When the hurricane was over I milled out the pine trees into wood and this bird house came from one of those trees. I was hoping to get a photo of one of the wrens going into the house with a bug in its beak but they were just to fast to catch them on camera. We have 9 bird houses up around the house and several of them house birds plus one flycatcher that has a nest on top of the electrical meter. Soon the nesting will be over and I'll be able to drop some large dead aspen trees for the rest of our firewood.
 The wild roses are all over around our property and they not only smell good but they are beautiful to look at. We have many flowers or flowering weeds coming up all around our property. There are columbine coming up in places we have not seen them before. Some people plant flowers and shrubs but ours have their own design and come up all over the property..
