A Day In The Sun


Today was beautiful here lot’s of sun and blue sky’s not a cloud in sight . I actually got a tan whilst out there ! The temps hit a high of  16ºC  or 60ºF according to our out door thermometer and that was in the shade so much warmer in the sun .

Miggs and I went for our walk took the hour walk and I did some pruning of bushes and tidied up the gardens a bit , then I took photos and enjoyed the weather . I could of cleaned my windows but heck I have plenty of time to do that .


The Cow birds have returned as has the Red breasted Grosbeak and the Barn Swallows . I am waiting for the Hummers , Orioles and King birds to show up now and of course Butterfly’s and Bees .


                             Theodore chased the Cow bird off  the stump so he could get some food !


                                                 At 1 pm the moon was up in the blue sky .


                                                    A Turkey Vulture flew over head !


                          There are lots of buds on the bushes and trees ready to pop any time now !


                       Mr Squirrel sunning himself high up in the tree as he watches Miggs !


Miggs was enjoying the sunny warm day as well  in front of Papa’s shop after she treed Mr Squirrel once again lol !


Birds , Chipmunks and Squirrels all busily nesting and eating in the sunny warm weather .

Tomorrow it is to rain and thunderstorm for the best part of the day . More showers will bring me my May flowers  WOOHOO !

Made BLT’S for supper  ,wanted some thing light and now Papa and Miggs  are in his work shop for a bit till tea time at 8pm . The Robins and other birds are singing as the sun sets and peepers are waking up as all else is settling down for the night .

Until next time , hope you all have a good day .

Thanks For Popping By !

It was a glorious Wednesday. Haven't seen our grosbeaks yet but lots of cowbirds and red wings. It's raining this morning and I'm sure the grass is getting greener and longer as I look at it.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and engaging, and let
me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I found this during my search for something relating to this.

Here is my page; love quotes for him
