I cleaned up all four bird baths today; scrubbed them spotless.
I love to see the birds settle in for a quick bath and a refreshing, cold drink on these hot summer days.
There are many new red squirrels running around and they are all very young; this spring's babies.
I feel their eyes on me.
Oh gosh, I can't stand it.
This little one watched me for an hour or so working in the garden and I just fell right in love.
The bird house made a great little resting spot.
But, of course, nothing beats a good tree branch.
Simon's girlfriend was showing off her packing skills at the feeder.
"Heaven's girl, that can't feel good."
She watched; she stared.
This blue-jay surprised me by allowing me a photo before exiting through the sumacs.
And on the day that we welcomed our new grandaughter, Tenley, to our family,
the chickadee returned to the mouse-house after being gone for two months while nesting.
I really missed them.
I hope to see many more as they return with their babies to our feeders.
And back to this cutie...
"Oh, those eyes."
OK ...it's a girl and her name is Sally.
And speaking of girls...
time to go visit and cuddle our new grandittle
with those baby blue eyes.
The little family.
Isn't she adorable.
Big sister and brother are so in love.
I am one blessed nana.
Thank you for all your lovely comments.
