The Birds are Singing

We're having beautiful weather and beautiful visitors!  I've seen so many birds here that I had only seen in books or online before.  I awake to their singing everyday since we have trees just outside our bedroom windows and we're upstairs. 
I hope everyone is finally getting a taste of beautiful spring weather. :) 

This is a Ceder Waxwing.  I am fascinated by this birds beauty.
Even with a mask it's just beautiful to me.  Looks like velvet.

Seems to love the berries.

I had only seen the male Purple Finch once before this visit.
I hope this couple makes a home in our yard.

I can see why my Grandmother has always loved the Blue Birds.
They scream sweetness, don't they.

This Cedar Waxwing brought friends, but they were so high in the trees
and so quick that I couldn't get them all.

                                       I now know this is a yellow-rumped warbler....thank you, TexWisGirl. :)  
                                These birds love the suet!  They even come to eat when the dogs are out playing. :)

I posted this little guy before.  I now know that he is a Pine Warbler. :)

National Puppy Day!

I just heard that today is National Puppy Day.  I can't go adopt a puppy today but, I can enjoy our neighbors new little black puppy, his name is Zulu and he's so cute!  I met him for the first time about a week ago and he gave me puppy kisses.  When I walked in the house my pups went crazy smelling me!  lol
The pups and I will be making their frozen treats while listening to our Carolina Wrens.  They have a nest under our screened porch and hang out on our back decks daily.  I never tire of these adorable birds!

The End. :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Do you make a special dinner for St. Patrick's Day?  We never have, but I know some do.

We've got green and blooms in our yard and it's very pleasing to my eyes. :)

Dogs & Cake = Happiness

Our sweet Roxy shared her birthday cake with her siblings.  I made her a peanut butter cake topped with plain yogurt & shredded carrots, really easy to make.  I do believe they liked it. :)
Kyle was assisting Roxy as she started to climb the table while we were singing Happy Birthday to her!
Roxy had a Princess plate because around here she's the Princess, but she's also boss of  her siblings. :)

Rambo is licking his lips just from looking at it. lol

Check out the focus and self control Rambo has on his piece of cake and
the balance he has in this swivel chair. ..impressive!

Such manners!

Rocket was sweet enough to clean up the crumbs. :)

We love you, Roxy!

Roxy is a certified pedigree, AKC.  That wasn't important to us, but I met a lady at the baseball games when Kyle was playing little league that happen to be a breeder.  It all worked out and we have our sweet girl, Roxy.  I wanted to share a few or her immediate family names with you because they make me laugh!

Roxy's father - Sire, Bocephus Kriminger 1st

Ready or Not, It's March

It's the first day of March and we have snow on the ground...we're not in Florida anymore. LOL!  Friday & Saturday were beautiful sunny days and we enjoyed every minute. :)

I would like to send a Happy Business Anniversary to my parents!  37 Years ago today, my parents started a successful business in Florida from scratch.  I've never known a harder working man than my dad.  I love & appreciate you both!

March is here, are you looking forward to anything special this month?  I'm looking forward to the time change because it has been getting dark way too early here, at least for me.  I'm also looking forward to celebrating my husband's b-day along with Roxanne's, my Dad's and an uncle's b-day. 

Beautiful weekend!

Our squirrels know how to share. ha ha!

We have been putting out buffets for the birds and squirrels
and they have been eating it up!

The snow didn't slow down UPS!
