As I’m working on this post on Saturday afternoon it is 75 degrees outside. 75! In fact, I was sitting out in our swing reading a book & had to come in because it was too cool for the shorts I was wearing. Wow.

Last year around this time I wrote about our out-of-control geranium (you know – the 5 year old one). Apparently pinky decided that last year’s out-of-control was just a warm up for this year’s out-of-control!

Dr. M & I visited a wildlife management area Sunday afternoon. I saw this graffiti in the parking log – reminded me of Steve Reed!
Here is Dr. M doing what he does best. I’m including a couple of pictures from our walk, but to see the others check out his post.

I’ve gotten behind on my birthday letter writing project – I had to mail out five letters today. Oops!
Chicken chilling out in our back yard.
Our great horned tomato!
This was the same day as the great squirrel escapade. I love this picture of the sparrows against a blue blue sky.

Pinky the geranium isn’t the only out-of-control flower in our back yard!

Another in our series of Cows Staring At Dr. M.
The State of the Bug – messy bun head!

A lovely hummingbird visiting our backyard hanging basket.
Dr. M is the pied piper of chickens. Every time he fills the bird feeders (like our new fancy schmancy red roofed feeders?) they come running to get their handout. Yes, they’re spoiled. Is it any wonder they think they belong to us?

As if Monday’s squirrel escapade wasn’t enough, here is another example of squirrel intrepitude (did I just make up a word?). He looks left, and then right, and seeing that the feeders are empty, decides to just leave.
It was cool enough last night to have a fire in the fire pit! In fact, I had to come back in the house & put on long pants, shoes & grab the shawl that Robin sent me after my surgery last year. It was lovely…

Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
