Let’s talk birds and flower’s this month!  First and foremost, plant red flowers to keep pests away.  Clematises are a beautiful climbing perennial vine with a wide range of colors.  Don’t forget to plant herbs with delicate aromas they are great to have around for cooking. 

Now on to the birds.  Here is a list of my favorites: Love Birds, Peacocks, Morning Doves, Robins, Cardinals, House & Gold Finches, any type of Warblers, Eider Waxwing, Grouse, Grebes, Alba Sand Piers, Long Billed Curlew, Screech Owls and of course Bald Eagles.  Enough Already, till next time!
