The month of May has flown by, leaving me wondering how I could have squeezed any more out of it, and yet feeling like there were so many Springtime mysteries that I missed. Life here at Ships Landing has been full of simply living, each day flowing into the next as seamlessly as a creek flows into a pond. I've been outside as much as possible, planting flowers, fighting crabgrass, planting a small garden with some tomatoes and cucumber plants. I finally gave up and put up a chicken wire fence around it since the rabbits were having their breakfast every morning on those tasty leaves. :) My birds are a continual delight to me, although I will admit that I pulled out the trusty .22 today to scare off the cowbirds. I've fed them all Spring, now I've had enough, and it's time for them to go pester someone else for a while. The Swallows have a clutch of babies ready for fledging. Wonder if I'll be outside with my camera at just the right moment (like I was last year :D). Oh I do hope I see those precious little ones emerge for the first time. They are already poking their little heads out of the hole when Mom and Dad are out scrounging up meals for them. :) One set of Bluebirds launched :) babies a couple of weeks ago, and I have another pair that are working on hatching their babies. :) The Goldfinches seem even more vivid to me this year. Must be aging that's coloring my view, do you suppose? :) I took Dewey to a new vet last Saturday. It was time. This past Wednesday he had 14 teeth removed. I just cried. How could a vet that I have seen for a year and a half not have known that he had a massive infection due SOLELY to some really bad teeth. I've gone through the rage (at first at my previous vet who told me numerous times that all of his teeth, with the exception of one back tooth, were healthy; and then at myself for continuing to give her the benefit of the doubt for so long), and have finally reached the point of just being so happy and relieved that Dewey is finally feeling IMMENSELY better. I'm giving serious thought to filing a complaint against her. We finally put the pontoon in the water this past week; now we are trying to clear a day here and there to go out and enjoy the water a bit. Hope everyone is totally immersed in Spring right now, and soaking up every minute of it. Summertime is nipping at Ms. Springtime's heels. :) It will be the 'heat of Summer' quicker than you can blink.

I sure do love your birds. I'm so sorry to hear about poor Dewey...I sure would file a complaint. It won't help Dewey but maybe it will keep it from happening to another poor dog. Oh that is just so sad.

Love your bird photography. You capture them so clearly. That blue bird looks mad. I love spring, but ours is now leaving us here and we are moving into the hot and humid summertime.

Your photography is stunning. I would be furious, too, over that turn of events with Dewey's health; so glad to know that he's doing better. Hugs!

Hi Angie,
It sounds like you are thoroughly enjoying your spring. The birds and flowers are lovely.

Poor Dewey. I hope he's feeling much better. When the little guys aren't feeling well, we feel it too.

Hugs,
Donna

Your birds delight me too! I am so sorry for your poor baby, our poodle has horrible teeth too, many thousands in that little mouth.

Boy Angie, your bird pictures are so beautiful. I'd sure love to be able to see your bluebirds up close!

Bless little Dewey. It is so hard to see them suffer, when they cant tell us what the problem is.
Love your bird photographs! We dont seem to see out lovely bright birds around now, because the ugly screeching Indian Myna birds have taken over our area. There is a campaign on to rid the district of the horrible creatures.
