Just wanted to share with everyone!

Friday, April 04, 2014


When I came home from my walk a few days ago this is what I found in our Redwood tree.



Funny, they made their nest on a low branch in the tree, so I hope they are safe, hope to see the little hummers.
When I went in I looked out the window and look what I saw.

Made my day emoticon
Have a great weekend everyone emoticon Jackie
one more

    How did I miss this? I have never seen a Hummer in that type of tree. How are the babies doing? That's a Dark Eyed Junco, right? How fun to be able to watch the bird through your window. Like the Woodpecker too. Great shots!

    What wonderful pictures!
I have never seen a humming bird nest.
I have humming bird feeders on my porch and we have several Humming birds here in the summer. I love to watch them fly to the feeders and back up to the trees.
Keep us updated. Have you ever seen a baby Humming bird?

    Awsome photos! You are enjoying the signs of Spring! I am starting too, as well. My crocus plants are starting to bud, daffodils have buds on them, too. We may get some sleet tomorrow, but I'll ignore that threat for now....

Hope your morning walk was an enjoyable one. Now that the contractors have left, I have a couple of hours to myself and will get my exercise in.

DH just planned a pizza & wings party for tonight because his brother is in town. I have been good all day. What in the world am I supposed to do with that? My first line of defense is to make a salad to bring. I've been good all day. Carumba.

Touches of Spring

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

This is what I see already in my yard.

All the fruit trees are in bloom, hope we don't get a late frost!

Some flowers that I now have.


Mockingbird.

The hummers are back, and fighting, wish they would get along, LOL!


And here is my buddy waiting for me.

Wishing you all a good day!

    Your yard is more colorful then mine lol...We bought a Anna Apple Tree today, and it has pink blossoms on it already. Our weather has been so nice, but says we have a chance of rain on the 28th. Keep your fingers crossed. We had another female Hummer show up, and the poor bird is being chased off by the Hummer that has been here. I don't get it. My MIL had all kinds of Hummers, and they got along. I barley had any Junco's in our yard this year. Kind of disappointed. emoticon

Fun Pictures, great days.

Friday, December 20, 2013


Usually the only birds I see in my yard are crows.


But a couple of days ago, all the crows were gone for some reason and I had a wonderful surprise. ROBINS!



About 30 of them all around the yard, could not get too close, did not want them to fly away.
Also had a woodpecker.

A Junco

I think this is a Black Phoebe

Anna Hummingbird.

Beautiful sunrises almost every morning.

Love my mountains.

I have had my ups and downs this year, but when I think about what I have and all the beauty I see every day, well, you know, 2013 has been a great year. I still have my gardens.

I still have my family, my hubby and kids, but they don't like there picture here, lo.
I also have my Buddy Patrick

Hope you enjoyed my pictures, finally got some good pictures of the birds. Merry Christmas everyone. We can makes this the best New Year ever. WE CAN DO THIS!!

I haven't seen a Junco yet in our yard. The Black Phoebe is such a pretty little bird. I am jealous of the Hummingbird. We haven't seen any for a couple of months now. Maybe it gets to cold here. We have been getting nice Sunsets as well.

    Love your pictures! I saw a little bird on the tree in my yard yesterday and all I could think was, "Why didn't you fly south for the winter?" and "How do you stay warm at night?" Yes, I'm talking to the birds now... just call me Snow White! lol Seriously though, you have great pictures and I especially like the ones of your garden and dog. You are a great photographer!

    I will trade you the view of the apartment building next door for that lovely mountain view! I love your dog! They are such a loyal loving friend. My parents raised Goldens when I was a kid so I was always around them. They are such an intelligent loyal breed. Now I have a basset hound and although incredibly loyal I find him a tad dense and challenging. lol Is yours an Irish setter?! Or mixed breed?

    These are fabulous pictures, one more incredible than the next. I loved that woodpecker! I hear them in my back yard (it's a big wooded area) but never, ever see them. Thanks for sharing (love the dog!)

    Oh Jackie - I just returned from a Christmas Party with my granddaughters and came to sync in and I noticed your Blog - What a lovely surprise to see all of those Robins in your beautiful Garden . The Woodpecker , adorable - I cannot wait to show my Mom the entire time we were out West we searched and searched for a woodpecker but a no show . Patrick still the Most Handsome Man around, very distinguished . All of the birds just Wonderful ! emoticon

Yes , I agree even with all of our troubles we are still so very Lucky ! emoticon

Merry Christmas to you Jackie and your Family - Patty too -

Hugs , Karen emoticon

    Yes I love your pictures :)
And I love how it sounds like you love where you live so much - that's so important :)
the sunrise picture is breathtaking :)
I love birds - my favorite animal :)

What I don't like is -
your ending -
sounded like a good bye??

And if I'm on the right track...
it better be just a "gone for the holidays" goodbye!!

I hope everything is okay with you!!

Love ya Jackie! emoticon

reply back this wasn't a good bye please emoticon
