Ok now on to happier, prettier thoughts. The trees are greening up in here everyday. The leaves are being born into little toddler leaves. See took a picture today.
|Just beginning to see the green shades returning in the forest.|
Then you take a picture up close and you see this....
|Little babies in the center then they just unfold and begin their new life.|
Now here are the pretty ones and my favorites only they don't last too long.....
|I was going to make a little round brown covering for it and then I looked at it and thought nope I like the rustic look to go with my rustic picture frame :)|
Remember my little Chipping Sparrow? Well I put some seed out on a (guess).....
Now how did you guess, a log? Only I think this one is a little precarious for the little fellow. Hope the ax doesn't slip!!
|I don't want this to be his "last supper" so I may have to tell Art to put his ax in another log :)|
Now for those of you concerned that we are still working Effie and Cooper too hard :) no worries we are not wearing them out now the storms are. They in one word (HATE) thunder, lightening, and rain. In the camper the rain is magnified a lot so they freak out even more. Poor babies.....
|Look at him give me that evil eye. "Don't you dare take my picture." Snap too late!!!|
|She is thinking I am taking Cooper's picture. So she didn't shut her eyes.|
The squirrels are still at it. Guess they are still hungry after such a long winter. And there are little tiny grey ones all over the place, running and playing. They keep a person entertained for sure.
|"Boy I sure don't remember burying those nuts this deep last fall."|
|More Dogwood Blossoms|
|As I was taking pictures of the Easter Lillies at the office I look over and see this. They were both looking at me until I point the camera their way. Just so funny, I guess they have heard the expression "point and shoot" too often. :))|
We just came back from a walk (between rain showers) and saw a hen turkey, too dark for the camera. Then Art saw a deer going up to the office to get our laundry but he doesn't take the camera, and I saw a coyote run across the road yesterday while racking sticks, and I didn't have the camera, and some other hosts saw 2 turtles yesterday but I wasn't with them, hence no camera. Are you tired of the excuses and no wildlife pictures?....me too! I am going to have to get out more and just look for opportunities. But this weekend our daughters and their families are coming for a visit so I won't be doing it then. You can expect granddaughter pictures first :)) Won't be long the deer should be out with their fawns, now you had better believe I will have my camera then.
So from Hardin Ridge in Hoosier National Forest best wishes and take care everyone.
