Another Beautiful Day


The weather has been perfect here sunny and in the 70’s & 80’s  . Papa took the day off of work again today as another vacation day  he likes to make a few long weekends out of it lol . Papa is preparing the area for him and his dad to install a sliding patio door in our kitchen where the old regular door is .  I will post before and after photos later this weekend .

Guess what ?  Our Hummers are back WOOHOO ! I spotted one yesterday evening zooming from feeder to feeder ! Oh and another bird has returned .

                                                    The Rose Breasted Grosbeak !

Spring 2013 (1 of 1)-49


Now all  of our spring and summer birds have returned ! I have seen the odd bee and butterfly to so they are next on list of spring arrivals .

I just love this time of year when all the birds return , butterfly’s and bees to , the smell of fresh grasses and flowers and the peepers in the evenings echoing in the woods by the river , to the birds singing to their hearts content . The days of sunshine and long walks and sitting on the swing on the porch as fresh  breezes blow for laundry to dry on the line outside , to puttering in the gardens , this to me is  oh so perfect !

                                          Until next time . Thanks for popping by !

We've had bees and butterflies but no red breasted grosbeak yet. I'll be on the lookout for it. The weather is gorgeous.

I was just thinking about getting my Hummingbird feeder out the other day, but though it was too early. Now I can.

Hello! I've really been missing your blog, and it's nice to have a moment or two to catch up with you! Our hummers aren't back yet, but the feeder is ready for them when they arrive--I also saw a Grosbeak this week, so hopefully they aren't too far behind!
