A Garden Surprise

 

Yesterday on Papa’s way home from work he stopped in town for a few bits and pieces of groceries that we needed   and surprised me with this sweet garden solar light !

                    I should get Papa to go to Wally’s world more often on his own lol !

                              Yup I’m easy , it doesn't take much to make me happy Open-mouthed smile !

                                                          Thank you Papa  Red heartRed heart !!!!!!

The weather yesterday was nice sunny and warm, today  to be raining and cool . Yesterday I had a feeling that our Hummers and or Baltimore Orioles will be back soon so I made a batch of home made nectar and put one of each feeder out !  I was right the Baltimore Oriole came back just hours after I had put the feeder out . I went to get my camera and BOOHOO ! batteries deader then a door nail . RATS ! , DARN IT !  I shouted   . I have two rechargeable batteries in my camera cause I have a battery pack called a grip attached to it and a hand strap attached to it all  , so I had to wait till they where charged , I need to get two more batteries so I can have a set charged at all times but the batteries are pretty pricy ! Oh well Mr Oriole  will be around till the fall I will have plenty of photos of him to bore ya with !

Any who   got to go now kettle is screaming at me need my cup of tea as it is 7:40 am and I shall be watching one of my favourite TV  shows  that I record Coronation ST  or as us fans call it  Corrie ST  it has been on for over 50 years I have been watching it for 30 years !

        Until next time hope you all have a great day !

I love your surprise gift from Papa, if it goes missing, I am 'borrowing' it. I want one too. That reminds me, next week-end I'll be with all my grands, I better charge up. Or I will be very angry.

The solar lights have come a long way. Patty got some of the first ones out and they fell apart pretty fast. She has a globe now and it is small but seems to be working fine.
