Is it a hawk or a falcon? Whichever it is it landed in my backyard to start having lunch. By the time I moved to the next window to get a better shot, it took off and had lunch somewhere else.
This is what the squirrels do when a hawk flies over. It is called FREEZE! They run to the nearest tree and flatten themselves against the tree and remain motionless until they sense the danger is over. See those little ears perked up to hear everything? They remained like this for over a minute after the hawk flew away. I spent some time outside digging yesterday trying to get the Rose of Sharon under control. It drops seeds and dozens of new sprouts come up. I haven't kept up with them and have about 3 years worth to dig out. I just did one small area and dug around 50 volunteers. I have a friend who will take a few but I'll have to throw the rest away. And this is just the white ones; I have the purple ones at the other end of the house.
And now for my reward. I had 2 finishes this week so I got a reward sewing session making more crooked cobblestones. They are so much fun to make. In fact I have to hide the bin with the fabric in it or I would only be making them and doing nothing else.
