I am amazed at how fast the Hawk chicks have grown into their adult feathers. They are absolutely beautiful! Click here to see their own page.

We also have a Garter Snake family living right by the front door! When she was all the way out of the rocks I didn’t have my camera, so I just got a shot of her looking out. We’ve also had a couple of Northern Flickers around. They have such a lovely song. Every summer/fall Soderglen have their cattle grazing in the Ducks Unlimited land around our place.

My rose bush is doing really well and last year’s poppies seeded themselves. They are growing by the cement pad on the lane way.
