Birds and Blooms

22 May

Walking in the pasture, I get to see lots of birds.

The barn swallows are back!

I have one surviving bluebell in my yard!

I am surprised at how many of the kingbirds I’ve seen.

My lilacs are blooming.

I also have just a few lily-of-the-valleys.  I thought my old dog (Stella) had destroyed all of my flowers.

The robin is still on her nest,but it’s getting harder to see her as the leaves come on the oak tree.

The wild plum trees in pasture had pretty blooms. They weren’t tinged by frost like the tree in my yard.

This is a funny bird, but I do like the squirrels too.

I think I must have been near the wren’s nest because she was not happy with me.

I do enjoy seeing them all.

Sky is growing into a beautiful German Shepherd.

Sky

He’s become quite protective of the farm.  Any tiny noise he hears, and he’s at the window giving a low warning growl.  I am constantly letting him out of the house to protect us from…

wild turkeys, cats, deer, squirrels, and every other manner of horrible dangerous critter.

I just wish he’d quit killing squirrels.

I cannot convince him that squirrels are our friends.  Sigh…

Noelle is adorable, but she still has no manners.  What is it with my animals and their lack of manners?

Dolly was in heat.  Despite my insistence that she is retired, she was making out with Xerxes. Now she’s all disgusting like a buck.

Fluffy tail was chewing me out.  I did let him/her know that I’m not the one to worry about.  That would be Sky.

My Casey Doodle.  He was such a sick baby, and look at him now–big fat boy wether.

This dog is such a goofy boy.  Don’t feel sorry for my mom.  She encourages such behavior!

Happy, happy day!
