More Wild Firsts

Finally, the first tomatoes are ripening.  And this little red mushroom was sighted among flowers.

The first year in a new home has to be the best, as you’re discovering new plant and animal life each day.  Today we saw another new-to-us bird, I think a cowbird of some sort.  Our birdbaths were crowded with all kinds of bird-bathers, including some bluebirds I believe, all splashing around together.  Lately, big fat chipmunks bravely join squirrels at the “waterhole” out on the exposed deck.  At night the crickets and cicadas(?) are almost deafening.  It’s a new, wild world down south.
