It's supposed to be 87 deg. here today. That is a summertime temperature, not Spring! But hey, I'll take it. :) I'm still enthralled by the birds. I just do not want to stay in the house right now, so once again I have to tell you that I've been outside from dawn to dusk. Yesterday evening I had TWO Indigo Buntings come for their 'supper'! Oh my goodness! Was I thrilled or what??? Of COURSE I got a picture...that one will be shown at a later date. :) And I've had a female Rose Breasted Grosbeak that last couple of days. Now, Sug (my seester) has had the MALE RBG ( am I jealous or WHAT??) LOL I haven't had him come to visit yet, but surely there's one here, right? After all, where there's a female, there's usually a male tagging along somewhere in the sidelines, right??? ROFL
That's a 'purple finch' having a drink after his meal. Isn't he a beauty? And the other picture is of my seedlings. They have really grown since I took that photo. I still don't know where to put my veggie garden. My darling husband DOES NOT want me to put it where I want it to go, so I'm at a stand-still in that regard. They really need to be put in the ground soon, tho. Either that or just throw all of them into pots. We'll see.
We had a wonderful day last Sunday with our friends from Knoxville. They brought the most yummy cake and mini-cupcakes from Magpies, a bakery in Knoxville. Then we prowled around outside looking at my plants, picking up some wood pieces from the lake bank for them to take home and use as 'yard art' *grins*. It was a lovely day. Oh, oh, oh, and they brought me a 5-gal. Lodge dutch oven as a gift! I was thrilled! I've been wanting one of those for ages and just hadn't bought it yet. So, thanks again, Joanie and Debbie! :D
I am going outside while it's still cool. Gotta play in the dirt, you know! LOL
