The owls are here every year! they come and go in three to four day intervals. They eat mice, gophers and birds.

Gayla,
Your pictures are always so nice. I wonder if you know what type of Iris these two are:

DSCF0006
DSCF0019_1

I just got back from a trip to Arrowhead Alpines in Michigan and bought 6 new species iris - I think one of them looks like yours.
