A Few Pictures

Here's a nice shot of the male bluebird as he prepares to enter the box. Isn't he dressed in a beautiful shade of blue?

Here's our brand new car port. Now all we have to do is put in the gravel and then plant flowers and stuff around the sides. And best of all, the bluebird couple wasn't the least bit disturbed by all the hustle and bustle! The nest building is progressing smoothly.

It's a good thing noise and activity doesn't bother them. I had company later that afternoon and it sure wasn't quiet around here! The kids love to play outside when they're here and our big up-and-down front yard keeps them busy.

Hills are made for little boys to roll down...

and for little girls to run up!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend!

Aside from duckies the only birds I see around here are huge crows and tiny sparrows and the occasional blur of a hummingbird. I'd love to have more avian life around here.

Maybe I need a parrot...wonder how the cat would feel about it.
