Crazy Hawks

We have so many hawks this year I guarantee you will see them several times a day.

This grown hawk the darker red one and the juvenile were together in a tree that fell down this week from the storm.

This was a favorite lookout tree on the fence line for the hawks I am glad it will be gone but this part of the tree is still upright the other half the tree was uprooted.

I do like taking pictures of the hawks they photograph pretty well and their colors just blend in with nature.

Capturing wildlife while posing in nature scouting the next meal.

Plants

With our latest cold blast, I lost a lot of plants.

Some will come back and some will not.

What I noticed this time was Azaleas, Crepe Myrtle, Texas Sage, Louisiana Iris,

Paperwhites, Wild Privett Hedge, Fringe, and another hedge I can not remember the name of all survived.

Now the pink showers, purple showers, creeping daisies, succulents especially Aloe Vera and ferns look dead. Some will come back.

The Mexican heather froze but it always comes back so we will see who makes the great come back.

I did put some Aloe Vera indoors just in case.

I love plants so much I collect more than I can protect.

For Livingston, we are ONLY planting freeze-hardy plants because it is always 10 degrees colder there.

The Cane Corso Studs of Shady Acres Leggett

Here are the two studs of our daughter’s Cane Corso breeding business in Leggett Texas.

Whiskey is much larger than Mako he is about 165#s and he just bred his first female Hippo.

Mako is Jeanelle’s number 1 stud people request him for breeding I think he is about 115#s. He just bred Storm again.

These dogs are large dogs but very sweet and lovable. Shady Acres is located in Leggett, Texas.

Happy New Year

We are driving to Livingston today to meet our oldest son Joshua.

We are hoping to get started on the weekend house in January.

Everyone please stay safe on the roads and remember to watch out for the other guy.

We will be back before the crazy starts. Livingston is 1 1/2 hours from us.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Another day another hawk

The hawks are everywhere.

Do not get me wrong I love looking at them but when I go outside after I feed the birds I can spot four different ones in trees.

I am going to try hanging small mirrors to see if that will keep them away.

Does anyone else have any ideas?

As you can see this one was eyeballing the ground from high up in a tree.

Merry Christmas

I want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas.

If you are traveling stay safe and watch out for all the crazy people driving on the roads.

I will post again before the new year.

Fungi on the forest floor

The forest floor in the piney woods offers the greatest opportunity to photograph some of nature’s wonders.

This time I concentrated my pictures on the Fungi in the damp pine straw under the pine trees.

I have no idea what the names are and whether they are edible or not I just know they photograph quite well.

The piney woods never lets me down there are always a lot of things to photograph.

Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

We have had our 4 youngest grandkids for the week.

Our temperatures have been cold and rainy but since I hate the cold the rain does not bother me we need it pretty bad.

The girls and I made chicken and dumplings last night. They are such good helpers at 8 years old. They love to cook whether its with their mom or me.

Everyone be safe on the roads and have a blessed holiday.

Juvenile Hawk

This is one of several Red Shouldered Juvenile Hawks in our area.

He is sitting on one of my bird feeders I watched him eyeballing for little birds to land. Thank goodness none landed at the time I was taking pictures.

I was able to get a few pics before Zoee saw him and barked chasing him off.

Nature is just right outside take the time to see what is your area and get a few pictures.

Sams Club Deal

We go to Sams Club a few times a month it’s about 8 miles from our house.

One thing I discovered is the Rotisserie chicken they cook today is cut up and repackaged for sale tomorrow.

You can get 4 Rotisserie Chicken breasts for $3.90. We normally go first thing in the morning so I am guessing that is when the best time to get this deal would be.

Now you might be thinking well that is a lot of chicken. Buy a few packages take them home and seal a meal in 1-2 breasts in a container. Write your date on each container and it is all good.

Then when you want chicken soup you have your chicken cooked, chicken spaghetti chicken stir fry, chicken pot pie, chicken enchiladas, and the list goes on and on.

Half the work is done when the chickens are already cooked and Rotisserie chicken is so so good.

You honestly can not beat the price of Sam’s Rotisserie Chicken breast.

This was such a good deal I could not wait to pass it on to each and every one of you.
