Serene

A mother’s work is never done, but a bird mother’s work is truly to be admired.

Meet the Triplets

Rather photogenic for baby Blue birds; don’t you think?

We have been surrounded by many nesting birds this spring:   Carolina Wrens; Blue birds; Cardinals; and these Blue Jays.   Some I have not identified as yet, but I am working on it.    I have enjoyed seeing their different nesting habits and watching them feeding their nestlings.

~*~*~*~

We had a nest of a different sort this year, a rabbit’s warren!   I haven’t located it but it appears to be under the junk pile behind the barn.  I don’t think the little guy is a cotton tail either.  It looks domestic to me.  I would let you be the judge, but the little critter is very wary and far to fast for my camera skills.

~*~*~*~

Summer is coming and then the nesting will be over till next year.

Now comes the sunset viewing of the little Firefly Fairies and this year the viewing is exceptional!

Photo Friday: Fog at Sunset

The rain storm that blasted through the south ended in a lovely fall finish.  It had been warm all day and when the rain stopped the fog began.  It was the strangest sunset I have ever seen!

SilhouetteEerie, yet lovely.

PersimmonIntense!

BTW The tree is not a tangerine.  They don’t grow here.  It is a *Fuyu Persimmon and for the first time it was loaded!  YUM!  🙂  Nobody on my street like persimmons but me.  😦

Bonus points if you find the man in the Oak tree.  😉

NOTE:  *I hate persimmons, but make an exception for the Fuyu variety.  You eat them like an apple while still firm!  They can be cooked but I prefer them fresh.  Although, I may have to make an exception this year.  Waste not want not.

A Real Snow Day!

The snow began late afternoon yesterday.  By dusk it was coming down in earnest.

Please click the first photo for captions and a closer view!

While the rest of the East is sick of all the snow, we here in the deep South-Eastern part of the nation are enjoying the novelty!

After all, if it has to be freeze-yur-backside-off-cold, then the least it can do is throw 6 inches of snow for a bit of entertainment!

My apologies to the North East who are up to their rooftops in the stuff.

News reporter to children:  “How long will you stay out in the snow?”

A mid-teen responds:  “Till 1:00 o’clock!”  Looks at parent… “If it’s OK with my mom; can we Mom?”  Looking hopeful and adding, “After all, there’s no school tomorrow!
