Fat birds and big dragonflies.

Or she might be pregnant. Either way, she’s enjoying the buffet.

Doesn’t it look like the bird on the left is griping about how long the other birds have been there?

A foggy day and a funny friend

Gorgeous foggy morning.

And I got an unusual care package yesterday.  Turns out if you post stuff on the internet, the universe may hear you and respond.  Thanks, Binky. (In case you can’t tell from the picture, your coonties are bigger than my coonties.)   x o x o

Eight lives left

Our cat Pete is 18+ years, and has become unsteady on his legs at times.  This week he stumbled into the pool, so now we have a man made cat barrier that keeps him away from the edge.  (If only we could make the border wall out of poinsettias and Christmas cactus. 🙂 )

Pete is fine, by the way.  I was more freaked out by his midday swim than he was.

Coontie babies

I found this gorgeous prehistoric looking egg under a holly tree in the yard this afternoon.  Looks like I’m having coontie babies!   Seeds, anyone?

This afternoon the weather was so beautiful I feel a little bit sorry for everyone not living in Florida.

And I’ve finally given up on growing my cherry tree out in the yard.   After three years of the deer nibbling the tender leaves, I have moved the poor thing onto the porch to recuperate.

Yellow cardinal?

This beauty was in my yard, Dec. 17, having breakfast.  Is he a yellow cardinal?  Cross breed?  ( The blue tape and white seed bag is my very high tech anti-squirrel defense.  Only thing I’ve ever done that actually keeps them off the feeder.  Not pretty, but the birdseed cost dropped significantly. )

My other bird watcher, Gracie.

And of course we have lots of what I call LBBs.  Little brown birds, chickadees, etc.
