As I sat reading the news on my laptop this morning, something caught my eye through the window to the backyard. My immediate thought was that one of the hawks around here flew down for breakfast. I got up and walked over to the window and saw a crane standing a few feet from our pond. He/she was at least 3′ tall. Unfortunately, my camera was on the other side of the room so I wasn’t able to get a picture.
On another note, since I post so many pictures of purple cone flowers here I thought I’d share one of our several sections of cone flowers. This one runs along the side of our driveway. I love these flowers!
