Perfect Weekend p. 2

When my friend and I get together we always enjoy it like a couple of kids!! We eat and drink too much we stay up late and we always spend time outdoors! We had brunch on the screened porch that overlooks the back yard and we watched busy yard birds...

northern cardinal

brown headed nuthatch


The Rose breasted grosbeak won't nest here but its nice to have him visit he has been here a couple weeks so far...



A pileated woodpecker is flying back and forth in our field...maybe looking for a suitable nest site or gathering food for hatchlings!!


and one batch of baby cardinals has already hatched and growing!


this green anole was hanging out on a rusty piece of metal so he took on the color of the rusty metal!


WE have Grey Tree frogs again this year in our water barrels! The are loud and love to croak day and night!. They have a lemony yellow color inside the back legs...




and they have beautiful eyes too! This frog is not very big... smaller than a golf ball.

A  red spotted purple looked freshly hatched too..




The dogs were out walking the yard with us after brunch and they settled down and relaxed in the sun shine..and watched us stroll around checking out all the action in the yard!

My friend had to leave about 3 pm so It was another great day of laughs and time spent in our favorite place, out in nature!

  5. Oh so great to see all the dogs! Those cardinal babies are kind of... creepy. I'm sure they'll grow up to be a bit cuter, fingers crossed. The nuthatch is my favorite for sure.
