Through the Windows

26 Jul

I think I mentioned a while ago that I was going to try to finish replacing my downstairs windows.  You know because I can’t take a decent bird picture through the old distorted glass.

Well, the windows were finally replaced this week. I like the way they look.  As I replace them, I’m going from the black around the windows to white. Some day, the 1970s fake shutters need to go.  It’s a work in progress.  Doors and the deck are next on my list.

Bob was the first one to make use of the new window.

Bob (so clean you get to see my reflection)

I’m pretty sure he’s not going to be happy with the changes to the front window because I’m pretty sure he would slip off the ledge if he tried standing on it now.  Poor cat.

My first bird shot through the windows!

While I was moving things back I had the thought that I could give myself more room if I used the bench for my plants.  I’m happy with that.

Then I could move Sky’s pillow out of the middle of the floor.  He likes the new place for this pillow.

Look who’s been hanging around my window this summer (in the interest of full disclosure, this window was replaced last year, but I really wanted to show off the luna moth)!

I’m thinking the new windows are a good thing.

The downy woodpecker stopped by for some sunflower seeds.  Looks like he was trying to stay dry under the deck railing.

Not sure it was helping a lot.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Saturday’s Birds

6 Feb

I quit putting birdseed out for a few days until I figured out how Vixen and Sam and Wanda would handle being in the yard. They don’t seem to come up front very much or pay attention to the feeders, so I filled them again.

It didn’t take the birds long to figure it out.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt, there’s still time to join in.  The items are at the top of my sidebar.

Sharing with Bird d’Pot and SOOC Sunday (all but the cardinal are SOOC).
