Staying Connected




Though I feel like I have walked away from so many contacts I have made here at Blogger, I am committed to staying connected and will use blogspot as a stepping stone to my new website and blog.
I am taking a break due to burn-out from working so hard on the new site. I hope you might check it out by clicking here. There you can see the story that goes with the photo above. It was a precious encounter and there are more photos if you click on the link. Best Wishes for now.

Almost Saying Goodbye to Blogspot


Flower Hill Farm finally has a new website and blog. I hope you will come over and take a scroll around our fifty pages plus. I will not be closing blogspot since my builder has yet to figure out how to transfer the comments from this blog and I so treasure your words. I hope to begin visiting other blogs now and catching up on what you all have been up to. I would so appreciate it if you would leave a comment over at my new blog instead of here. Then I will know if it works or not.

Spring's Resolve Bluebirds and Tree Swallows


Property disputes between bluebirds and tree swallows, and tree swallows and tree swallows seem to be resolved by now and life is very busy with serious nesting preparations here at Flower Hill Farm. 
Today I took my first butterfly photo of 2014 — caught a whisper of light in a Cabbage White while she rested between sips of daffodil nectar. I invite you to scroll through to see the animated birds and a honeybee too. 




















Migratory songbirds are showing up daily to claim their territory. A Ruby-crowned Kinglet is displaying his crown while very near the ground. I fear for the hundreds of sleeping pupa and caterpillars hoping for a season to spread their gowns. But I am happy to see these familiar bird friends return.

Everyday, new Iris reticulata stems are breaking earth and pushing their way through last years detritus spreading petals of blues and purples across the garden floor. 

Meanwhile, I am working at the computer most days into nights and often into nearly dawns trying to finish my new website. Gathering and resizing then grouping years of photos of wildlife and gardens, skies and landscapes all arranged on pages that hold this place in pixels. Flower Hill Farm and all her beasties are being catalogued and soon will be presented on my new site caroldukeflowers.com. 

I will be back here a few more times to invite you to visit.
