How's the weather in your area? Whew, I tell ya I went out with the dog this morn and it is steamy hot! A few days ago it was only in the 60's and windy. I'm sure many have the sang, just stick around five minutes and the weather will change, lol! Anyways, I'm calling all bird watchers. The above bird was making a such fuss about my dog, Shadow, and I in the back yard. I looked and saw a tiny baby one nearby. They quickly went to the field and I didn't get a photo of the tiny baby bird, but did get this photo. So, I'm just wondering what type of bird this is. And, speaking of birds I was so excited when I saw this nest!
I thought...hmmm...what type of eggs are these. I tell ya I'm certainly getting a nature lesson just by looking around in my back yard!:-) I heard lots of chirping one morning and looked out my window! And, what did I see...yesss...a cardinal! I was happy dancing! We've seen a male and female cardinal quite often in our yard. And, I am so happy to see them making a sweet little home in our back yard for their little ones! I tell ya it makes me very happy since I was very sad when the robin's eggs did not make it. Something got to the nest and we found the nest and eggs on the ground. But, anyways, the above photo put a big smile on my face!:-)
You still with me? I have to tell ya I had quite a scare this
morn when I saw this creature in my yard....
What is really funny is that I nearly picked it up thinking that it was a stick! Shadow stuck his nose to it and I screamed...hehehe! I realized it wasn't a stick when it moved. That is a lesson learned to put my glasses on when on my nature walk in the back yard!:-)
OK...just a couple more photos. I planted lots of flowers yesterday. It was a perfect day to plant flowers. Just a tad warm, but so happy I got them done and did not wait until today, which is so humid. Here are some of the flowers around my yard...
Hanging basket that we can enjoy while on
I planted four dozen geraniums around the house in pots. I also planted one dozen dahlias. The hosta plants in between the pots are coming up beautifully! I'll take more flower photos later when my roses bloom. I just hope the darn little rabbits don't get to my hostas as they did last year!
And, last but not least here is a pic of my sweet dog, Shadow, who saved me from the snake...lol!
Thanks so much for visiting here today and taking the time
to view all my photos! Take care, hugs!:-)
