Final Day of Air Show

We went back to the air show on Sunday to see the final performances. Here are scenes from the F/A-18F Super Hornet Demo, John Mohr’s barnstorming in a Stearman biplane, and the Blue Angels.

Wings in the Yard

We bought this speedwell because it was advertised to attract butterflies. I haven’t seen any butterflies on it, but it draws a lot of wasps.

The wasps chase everything away from the speedwell’s bed, but Blue Dasher dragonflies patrol all the other beds.

And, as predicted, Halloween Pennants have begun to arrive.

Doves are the most numerous birds in the yard, but the blue jay fledglings are the loudest.

However, their cries cannot compete with the Blue Angels, who are in town for a weekend airshow. The show’s flight path takes them right over our yard…
