A couple of weeks ago, I asked you to send in photos of wildlife in your garden, and Pam Wittenberg from Santa Rosa, California, had a bunch to share! She says, “Here are some pics of the wildlife in our garden. We, too, get hawks feeding on the songbirds in our garden. There’s one pic of a hawk feasting up in a tree. They get very mad when we watch them too much and glare at us from the creek! I just hope they don’t grab any of the baby turkeys that visit our yard. I also included some more common visitors – a baby possum, a few proud turkeys, an orb weaver spider with his honeybee meal safely stored away, a recently molted cicada hanging out on a Tiarella blossom, and a teeny tiny snail in the late afternoon sun.” Thanks, Pam, for sharing your visitors with us!
Welcome to the Fine Gardening GARDEN PHOTO OF THE DAY blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.
READER PHOTOS: We love featuring your photos, too. If you think you have a photo that we should share on the Garden Photo of the day, email us. Send hi-res images if possible. We’ll only respond if we plan to use your photo.
