Birds In the Cage

Bottoms Up
With a visit to the pet store for bunny food, I snapped these photos. I love these type of birds. They are beautiful in colors and very fun to watch them hoping from this to that. Then they both dived in, bottoms up just went the camera fired off.

Pink Aster Crego In My World

This year my pink aster crego flowers grew in plenty, and they were beautiful. The flowers lasted a long time, tall, and a welcome sight to my front porch. I took many photos, but when I needed them, I can't find them. Have this happened to you?

Thanksgiving is now behind us, and Christmas is moving in quickly. We had our first snow today, but it didn't stay around. I like it this way as I don't have to shovel :-)

Let's have another great week!

On A Warm Day, Critters Come Out to Play

The Meeting
I believe these are called boxelders, or maybe milk weed bugs! The weather doesn't have to be very warm for these critters to come out. They were having a meeting on my son's jar of rocks, which were left on the ledge of our house. I know, they are the destroyers of many plants, but somehow, very pretty looking bugs to me also.

Faces Of Straw Flowers In My World

Now that winter is creeping in, I am even more vigilance in keeping an eye out for wonderful sky colors to show up. You know, living with all that grey for days drains the energy out of me. Outside and inside always have such a doom feel to them.

Na, I am whining, just expressing how I feel about winter, and won't stop looking for other remarkable or amazing things to see during the cold months.

This year I had three different colors straw flowers: white, pink, and yellow. They were so fabulous to have in my flower pot, even though their petals were as rough as paper; they closed at night and opened during the day. The flowers lasted for a long time, which put them on top of my list to grow again next summer.

If you have Dollar Stores or their chain, keep your eyes in the flower department. They carried flower seeds and usually sold for a quarter during off season. I found these straw flower seeds there.

Batman, The Dark Feathers

Front View of Dark Feathers Bird
My neighbor, the renter, moved out last month and left a horrible mess in the yard. The owner had to hire a landscape company to fix up around his home; so after the workers left, I saw a flock of these dark feather birds on my driveway. They looked like Batman to me through my window for some reasons, and I have never seen them before either.

Baby Pink Bud In My World

We are having a windy and wet Monday here, so the collage you're seeing was taken some times in the past. Which meant summer! We won't have any flower or see colorful sky for the next four months, but with just occasion sun light. It is all good as I am used to it.

The baby pink buds were the pink straw flowers that I grew this past summer. They were easy to grow without much fuss, and stayed blooming for a long time. I had pink, yellow, and white straw flowers. I will have to tap into those photos for the winter.

You don't want to see icicles, do you?

Baby, I Love You!

Baby Robin
This baby bird fell out of its nest in July in my front yard. It was out in the open, making no noise, or movement. We almost didn't see it, so we tried to help it hopping into the bush by walking behind the baby bird. Around this time of the year, we saw many different juvenile birds in our yard.

November Blooms In My World

These flowers are from the wild flowers mixed box that I bought from the Dollar Store in early fall. Yeah, yeah, I said that like ten hundred times already, I know! However, I mention it because these babies are still BLOOMING in November! The miniature Rudbeckia Hirta, the blue miniature cornflowers, the deep purple cornflowers, the white cornflowers, and the pink cosmos are all still growing and blooming.

Clockwise from the collage above is my White Cosmos flower, just opened two days ago, pink cosmos, lavender cornflower, pink cornflower, and the yellow one I believe it is called Sleepy Daisy.

Our weather is in the 30s so you know it is cold, and to see the flowers bloomed; it is quite a happy moment. Have a fantastic week ahead..

Guarding The Line

Birds Up High
Starlings and pigeons are busy birds who guard their area around many fast food places. They swoop down for crumbs and quickly fly back up to their familiar territory.
