Two squirrels visiting

These two squirrels visited on two different days.
The one in the actual feeder is smaller and more skittish than the other one. I feel like he is younger.

I feed the birds but a lot of different wildlife enjoy the seed.

Buzzard silhouette

This buzzard landed in a tree in the backyard on the fence line.

The sun was rising behind him which makes for a good silhouette.

I have never seen a buzzard cooling off in a tree with his wings wide open.

I had to laugh thinking we all wish we could do just that Texas has been hot this year there is no doubt.

Dove peek a boo

Around here you never know what might be sticking its head up from a feeder.

You could only see this dove’s head and she was so pretty.

After living here for almost 43 years, raccoons can be seen eating the bird seed at night. I am trying not to put out too much to avoid them moving in full-time.

I think it’s so sad that all the woods in our area are now subdivisions and the wildlife is being chased out.

We must protect our wildlife the best we can. I genuinely enjoy taking pictures of my visitors.

Wildflowers from the birds

This year, we have been finding the black oiled sunflowers all over our yard and pasture.

Well, this makes sense because I feed that seed.

The wildlife reseeds the seed you feed them, which is a win-win situation for all of us.

Life is good and these flowers can survive our drought then I have something to photograph.

Birdhouse wall

The grandkids and I love to craft together.

We have this birdhouse wall on the side of the well shed.

All the houses would not fit so there are a few more across the yard from these.

We have not seen any birds nest in them but who knows maybe some birds will like condo-type living.

This was done more for decoration to add some color to the backyard.

Make your yard stand out with bright colors so every time you walk out there it makes you smile.

Moss Rose showing off

I loved the color of yellow on this brightly colored planter.

I wished it was bigger but bought it for the color.

It was big enough to hold two moss rose plants.

Let me tell you these plants love the location and have been showing off.

Moss rose is one of my favorite plants I have it in about 5 different locations in the yard.

I love the fushia pink moss rose next to the yellow planter.

Accenting with pops of color in your yard keeps it from being too boring and makes it fun.

Birds in Feeders

Around here there are so many birds. I have to have different kinds of feeders in select locations so everyone can eat.

These birds decided to sit in the concrete feeders I made.

One is having seed and one is having orange slices. I have learned not to throw away fruit there are certain birds that love it.

The little things in life make each day special look around and find some little things.

The great ginger comeback

Last February we had that really bad freeze and my ginger died back all the way to the ground.

I thought I was going to lose it all but this is a picture I took this week.

It is about one foot shorter than it was last year and very full. I doubt it blooms this year but I am grateful it did not die.

Sometimes plants will survive extremely cold temperatures even when the odds are against them.

A cardinal posed on a fence

This male cardinal posed on our jasmine fence.

It saw me taking pictures out the french door but seemed not to care.

Sometimes birds can be camera hogs too.

The bright red bird hiding in the twigs of the jasmine and with the green pasture behind made a striking picture.

Bench in the woods

We were in Livingston a few weeks ago I was taking puppy pictures, family pictures, and grandkid pictures.

A lone bench on a trail in the East Texas woods had this feeling of calmness.

Life can be hectic and taking the time to enjoy this moment of serenity was perfect.
