The vernal pond is brimming full with water and wildlife.
A poor pic but some of the tadpoles that hatched out from the spring rains.
Another section of the "back 40". The blackberry thorns would love to take over. There are Norway spruce planted in the center of the feed strip.
The crabapples are already starting to form.
This doesn't look like much but it's one of 10 persimmon trees that hopefully someday will make a small grove of wildlife food.
Now that the planting all done, its just mowing and keeping an eye on tent caterpillars and other insects that want to make a meal out of my labor.
