New Family Members

Introducing my new children, Greyson and Kairo. They are 9 week old brothers who could not be more different if they tried.

Greyson is the outgoing one who loves to climb up my back when I am sitting on the sofa or chasing my feet.

Kairo is slightly more reserved or shy. He loves to sleep on his back or under any blanket that he can find.

Natures Teacups?

After seeing my grandson off to school (kindergarten now!) I took a little stroll around my yard. When I look at my last remaining flowers I notice a bunch of brown things all over the place.  I think they are mushrooms.  When you look in the 2nd photo it looks like little eggs and some of them hatched.

Meet Mr. Theodore Oliver Alexander Donovan, III

Meet Mr. Theodore Oliver Alexander Donovan, III aka TOAD who lives under my steps.  In a previous post, Spare Room, I let you all know that Toads/Frogs live under my steps.  Well as you clearly see by Theodore, I still have not fixed the steps.  There is a plan in motion to fix them this summer.

A Patriotic Turkey

The other day as I pulled into my yard I saw 3 female turkeys and this big old male strutting through my yard.  The females were harder to capture as the kept darting off towards the woods every step I took in their direction them.  But this big old Tom Turkey took his sweet time.  Although he could hear me walking towards him he never moved faster, he just kept showing off his tail feathers and moving with purpose (so it seemed) towards the woods.  His face and neck were red, white and blue hence why I call him a Patriotic Turkey.

Today is Memorial Day here in the USA and I thought it fitting to share my Patriotic Turkey.

Flower of the Day

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them”

by Henri Matisse


Photographing any type of flower equals happiness to me.  I love the smell of their fragrance, the feel of their petals, and of course their color.  It all has a calming effect on me by allowing me to get lost in their beauty.

No Vacancy

I recently had some trees cut down and to my surprise there was a nice size hole in my roof.  This area has been covered by a tree since I moved into this house 2 years ago.

I notice that I have tenants squatting there that I did not know I had.  Now the new issue is how to get them out without spending a bunch of money.

Now that the house is officially and legally mine I and begin some of the long over due repairs and upgrades to the property and house.  I have a long ‘Honey do” list but no “Honey’ at this time.

Smile

Today I had a few trees cut down and in the pile I find 2 unlikely images, a heart and what looks like 2 eyes (to me anyway) on the side of a log. When I put them together it looks like it is smiling.

 

 

I will be getting a straw hat for it and placing it in my flowerbed somewhere.

Coming to Life

Today was another chilly and rainy day here.  However, I did not let that stop me from taking a few pictures.

My yard is starting to come alive again.
