My Back Yard--Deer and Wild Turkeys

The mother deer and three fawns are always running around my back yard looking for food. Now, the mother's gone, and the three young deer are on their own.

The mother turkey and nine young chicks have been coming "home" every evening. They flew into the tree tops one by one and rest there through the night. It's fun to watch the action.

Orchids in September

Onc. Sharry Baby ' Sweet fragrance' - chocolate scent. I have a couple of these plants. They're easy to grow and bloom couple times a year.

Blc. Richard Mueller x B. Cordata, "Lady of the night"
Fragrant at night. It blooms during this time of year faithfully. Their flowers change color from a little pink to yellow after a few days and last more than a month.

Free Style using Leftover Materials

Materials: Ceriman, Philodendron selloum, Carnation, vine
I think this long bamboo basket suits this big Ceriman leaf (20"x17"). The tied vine around it makes it look balanced and in harmony.
