Ok, not literally in my backyard...but very near by we have a trumpeter swan refuge. Chloe and I hiked in one morning with my parents and found several swans with their cygnets. What a sight to see them in the wild! What beautiful and large creatures that they are.We also saw a swallowtail butterfly and a bald eagle soaring above to round out the morning. Then back home to my actual backyard, we have our final sunflower bloom for the year.
We have watched the others being pollinated.Then go to seed. What a fun process to witness!I'd love to know what's going on in your backyard on this beautiful September day.
