Bird Watching

Another reason to go to the golf course...

Cheeky Bird

This isn't cropped or anything. The cheeky little Robin must have been protecting her babies that were somewhere close by! Good momma!

Golf Course Deer

This is the only way Wayne can get me on to the golf course. Promise me that I will have something to take pictures of. Baby deer on the greens. Wayne golfed, I took pictures!

Peaceful Cemetery

For my Saskatchewan friends who think I am weird when I say Neepawa, Manitoba has a beautiful cemetery. Here's proof! Caretakers ensure live flowers are planted and trees are trimmed. There are walkways and benches to rest on. You can even leave trinkets on loved ones graves with out fear of them being vandalized! It's actually a very nice place to take a walk in.

Two Bunnys

Can you see the second one?

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

He's back.....

Oh little BUNNY it's been so long since you were in my garden. In my YARD, no dog to bark, my tied up CAT's your pardon. ---------------- All last year and now this summer my flowers how they bloomed, they're now chewed daily, the roots left barely, my posies are now doomed. --------------- Why is it my perennials, the ones that cost me lots, that you must munch on for your lunch rather then weeds not bought? ----------------- The dandy lions they did not cost me, nor did all of that clover. If you were any kind of FRIEND, you would my plants pass over. -------------------- But no you eat my pricey flowers, the ones that don't reseed. You're lucky I adore you so - but please eat my chickweed. ----------------- Your furry face and puffy tail are to me so sweet. Those great big ears, those deep brown eyes, those strong back bunny feet. --------------------- So while you feed, please think of me, and spare my most EXPENSIVE. ------------------ In return no one shall harm you in my garden HERE, you will be safe, you will be fed, 'cause you do less damage than the DEER.

Cat Fish

My New Garden Cat!

Ladies - Your New Feeder

Male finches won't let the females eat at the same time as them. They push them away. So instead of having them fight, I bought a second feeder. It seems to be working so far! No one should keep a gal away from her food!

Self Help

Got thinking about different programs on TV lately (make-over shows mostly), all the "self-help" books, all the "motivational speakers" and I have come up with some things I would like to see:
"Your Home Is Crappy But If You Are OK With It, We Are OK With It"
"Your Clothes Are Old Fashioned, But At Leased You Are Dressed"
"My Boobs Are Not Symmetrical - But Actually - That's Pretty Normal"
"Having Enough Self Estem To Not Compete Against 20 Other Women For A Man On National Television"
"I'm OK, You're OK, We All Are OK"
"When Adequate Is Good Enough"
"I'm Average And I'm OK With That"
"Not Looking To Get Ahead"
"When Is Enough, Enough"
"How To Live A Good Life Being An Average Person"
"I've Got Food, Shelter, Love, That's All I Need"
"I Have A Chev Malibu And Am Not Afraid To Park By Your Lexus"
.........hmmm.........can you tell what kind of a day I had?

Yellow Finch

Love the yellow finch! They aren't as brave as the Robins or the Doves and so will fly away at the slightest noise. They are hard to get a close-up of, but luckily, I have a good zoom on my camera!

Little Wedding Dirt Girls

OK moms - can you relate? Your children are all dressed up, and while your back is turned for one moment, they can find the only patch of dirt there is in the whole park and start digging in it! Too cute! (When it's not my own kid of course!)

Remembering Winter

My Christmas Bears!
Though summer is here
It goes fast I fear
Appreciate the warmth of the sun
Take a moment to remember
The cold of December
In a blink of an eye summer's done
Catherine M A Sykes

Watch Out Birds!

Birds enjoying a refreshing evening bath last night after the hot, windy day.

Bouncing off the Pounds

Wondering how Banjo is loosing weight?

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Feeling Summery!

Nothing feels like summer to me like Hostas & Yellow Flowers! I love them! I watched the birds and took pictures of flowers this morning. What a beautiful Canada Day!

Slimming Banjo

Banjo is down to 26 lbs. 4 lbs lost! Which is LOTS for a cat - don't you think? That's 14% of his weight! You can't tell a whole bunch from these pictures (top - before & bottom - after), but he was sitting on the floor last night and I could see his hips bones!!! Wish I could see my hip bones!!!
