Outdoor Interests 


Reagan's Queen Anne ~ Summer

Hummers battle for position


From May to October, three to four dozen resident hummingbirds
perform their aerobatics daily for guests to enjoy.
Recently, battles for control of the 10-14 feeders have been furious.
Some ports have been "shared" by two birds at a time!
These little jewels zip, dive, dart, suspend themselves with fanned tails,
and squeak continuously, as they fight for positioning on the feeders.
...Such delightful and Free entertainment!
(From the kitchen window...Can you count 5? Hint : One is very blurred and behind a perch, only the tail visible.)


Backyard Koi Pond

 

The backyard waterfall and Koi pond are recovering from a tornado on May 20, 2013.
Judy's fish, raised from fingerlings, with some growing to more than 28" long,
did not fare well through the tornado. Four big Koi and one Shubunkin were lost.
It was a sad day. One remaining Shushi Koi is joined by an adopted Taisho Sanke Koi one Fantail,
and one Fancy Comet, which we have had for 18 years. We were so surprised to find three brand new tiny fish in 2015!
Then again last summer we saw FIVE more, when they were less than 2 inches long! We believe our 18 yr old Fancy Comet,
with the very long flowing tail and pectoral fins is responsible for the eight Comet hatchlings.
In 2017, our huge Mulberry tree in the back yard fell. Clean up caused damage to the pond and water fall liners.
We took the opportunity, while the fish were in the Jacuzzi, to enlarge the pond and install a new liner in 2017.
Work begins soon(2018) on the waterfall liner and pond rock edgings.
 


Reagan's Queen Anne ~ Autumn


October peak colors for our two sugar maples in front of our house.
Most neighborhood trees are past peak in this photo.
However, the maples on our street are absolutely breath-taking,
as colors change from yellows, to orange hues, to cerise and deep reds.

 

 


Check Our Photo Gallery for a fascinating photo display,
of several male and female Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds.
The photos were taken at Reagan's Queen Anne in August 2008, by one of our guests.
John Crim sat for hours to capture these little jewels on his NIKON D 1X.
