In the Garden on Thursday

Mindy:    Our garden is quickly showing signs of coming back to life after the wind, snow and rains of winter.  Spring seems a bit early this year, and that is fine with me!

We have our first rhododendron out in bloom!  I have to show you this, I am so excited to see it.

Mr. Pheasant is still coming to our bird feeder and he often brings his two lady friends.

One more backyard critter.

This birdie can get a bit loud when it pecks at our wild apple tree.   At the suet feeder, the noise is not so bad.

Hope you enjoyed the tour -  even better I'm hoping your own yards, gardens or planters are showing signs of spring.  Have a lovely day!

Rain on Tuesday

Not just rain - pouring rain.  Mombean says we really need rain.  However we don't get to see much activity on our 'outdoor TV' during a downpour.   Some hungry birds come to our feeder and of course our 'regular customer', the tasty looking squirrel.  It seemed  to think it is better to get rained on, than to go hungry.

Cookie: I was not happy to see how wet the deck was, bleh!  However, I love going out on the deck even if I don't have much sight, I can still hear things and smell some of the tasty blades of grass.  Just not today.

I think this is the perfect opportunity to relax and get some beauty rest.  It is important to look good, I say!

Moe:   This chair is mine, all mine!  Besides, it is close to both the front and back doors - and - I can snoopervise any activity in the kitchen!

Mike:  Wake me up when the rain stops.

 Everybody, please, have a grand day, no matter what the weather is like where you are.

P.S. It looks like we have a new Blogger interface, and if you are reading this, then we managed it without any trouble.
