Yard photos summer 2008

Backyard photos from July 16 and 18, 2008

My favorite Oak Openings native plant growing in our backyard is the Swamp Milkweed. The tiny, intricately-designed, sweet-smelling flowers attract a wide variety of insects, including the Monarch Butterfly. Last year, our patch of Swamp Milkweed hosted several Monarch Butterfly caterpillars.

I took these photos at my friend's surprise birthday party, which was held in a reception area at the Mud Hens stadium. The team mascots visited our gathering. After enjoying food, beverage, and cake, we watched the ballgame on a fine summer evening in downtown Toledo.

Unfortunately, my friend passed away unexpectedly in December 2013. He and another co-worker in the IT department were responsible for getting me interested in birdwatching back in 1999.
