This pair of chipping sparrows are building a nest where the ones last year built one.
Maybe they like this one because part of the work was already done.
The funny thing is there are 3 other bird houses in the same area but the birds seem to like this one because it is the tallest.
Stripey was just sitting there all prim and proper so I could not resist taking a picture of him.
This was taken using my Canon 400mm lens and it really turned out quite clear and he had no idea I was taking his picture.
Today I took out the camera it has been awhile.
I headed for the heifers next door and caught these cuties just in time.
The tongue shot was just good timing she had been eating molasses.
These cows lay on the edge of the round bale so this is why they have hay all over them. They do not seem to mind at all even if it is picture time.
Cows have many expressions and I love trying to capture their true personalities.
Sometimes life gets complicated and we just need a little time to breathe. We need time to concentrate on the simple things.
I am still taking a break from blogging for right now but will check in every now and then. I will do my best to visit your blogs when I can.
Today Daisy and I were up early actually it was about 2:00 a.m. I woke up first and that always wakes her up.
I went to let her outside & noticed we had a little surprise last night it had snowed.
We maybe get snow flurries one time every 5 years or so but it never sticks to the ground.
Needless to say, I took phone pics, tablet pics, and camera pics.
I grabbed a few to post on here.
This cowboy fella I found on clearance last year for $15.00 I think he is adorable and he sits on the front porch with my winter stuff but I had to grab a picture of him in the snow.
This sunrise today in Manvel, Texas was exploding with colors.
The colors were shining through the clouds.
Today is a beautiful day.
Some recently bought calves from an auction moved from across the street from us to next door.
See those ear tags with numbers those are from an auction. Many of these numbers are in a row so I think that would mean from the same person herd of cows.
I love having cows next door it has been a long time since this has happened.
Daisy is not quite sure yesterday she ran at the fence with her ball in her mouth thinking she could scare them. They stood their ground and she went on her merry way lol.
These girls are quite friendly they come to the fence to talk to me and some let me pet them. They seem to like to take pictures.
