This tiny duckling trudging along behind his mom is probably also thinking, “Mom, are we nearly there yet.”
Wishing you all a happy and relaxing weekend.
Perry the Pelican was floating on the lake this morning and seemed to be practicing his heart shapes for Valentine Day.
“No this isn’t quite right.”
“That’s better, but I think I need to pull my neck back just a little bit further.”
“Aha…..how’s that for perfection?”
“Now in the other direction.”
“If only I could just stand on my head, it would look even better.”
“Wow that looks so cool. Must be trick photography, but I’ll take it.”
Wishing you all a very happy week.
“Mom, are we nearly there yet?”
Happy Sunday, everyone.
Watchful heron sits
Amid cloud reflection haze
His world so peaceful
Wishing you all a happy and peaceful week.
The pelicans have been rather tardy in making an appearance here this winter, but a few days ago I spotted this pair from my kitchen window.
Penny was looking down from her perch and cooing in her sultry ‘Mae West’ voice to her friend Perry ” Hey Handsome, why don’t you come up and see me sometime?”
Perry, who had been hoping for an invitation from the beautiful lady upstairs, was in the process of preening himself.
It didn’t take very long for him to accept her kind invite and soon the two of them were well on their way to becoming BFWB.
Another Mae West quote which I really love, is, “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
Wishing you all a very happy and relaxing weekend.
Grandpa Igasho shows off his new orange and black outfit. “What do you think of my Halloween costume? I thought I’d better grab it quick before they were all sold out.”
This is my contribution to Debbie’s ‘Six Word Saturday’ challenge.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend.
Well, here in Florida I think we’ve reached saturation point with all the rain we’ve been having, but today the sun is shining so here’s hoping we’ll have blue skies for the weekend.
One very colourful visitor to our backyard is Mildred Muscovy. She has a face that only a mother could love, but maybe in Muscovy world, she would win a beauty contest.
I’ll add just a touch more rouge to make her really outstanding and get her noticed by the judges.
Happy weekend, everyone. To join Paula’s Thursday’s Special Challenge, click the link below.
Our backyard is aflutter with birds since we put up the new birdfeeder which hangs on a wire between two palm trees. It’s almost impossible to get photos of the birds actually on it, as I have to go out of the screen room door, and no matter how quietly I try to open it, they always sense my presence and are gone in the blink of an eye. My best option is to lurk by my bathroom window and take a shot as they land on a tree.
We have two pairs of Cardinals who are regular diners at our little restaurant.
The beady-eyed Grackles descend in a gang and completely take over the feeder, whilst the other birds and Sammy squirrel hop around underneath picking up the seeds that fall to the ground.
Hubby and I are very excited to soon be going off on our travels again to England and South Africa. We’ll have happy family reunions and also there’s my Mom-in-Law’s 105th birthday to celebrate in August.
Happy Thursday to you all.
The Beakleys have been very busy of late. No more time for a leisurely tête-à-tête by the waterside.
Today, Mama Beakley arrived in our backyard with her seven adorable, fluffy ducklings. She had heard that there was plenty of birdseed in the grass underneath our bird feeder, and proudly watched as her babies enthusiastically gobbled it up.
After a while she decided it was time to leave, so after quickly doing a head count,
she lined them up and off they sailed in single file across to the other side of the pond.
Hope you’re all having a splendid week. It’s a another beautiful sunny day here in Florida.
