  • Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
  • Flowers & A Bird, Oh My.

    Catybug planted our sunflowers this year, this is one from a variety blend of seeds. When I looked up at it (it’s about 10 foot tall) it was just glowing from the sun behind it.

    I planted Lantana again this year because last year it grew into nice sized bushes that the swallowtails really loved. It’s a little measly thing this year, but still has pretty blooms that are definitely worth a view through the lens.

    A friend of ours brought over a bird yesterday not knowing what it was, just that it seemed pretty friendly and that maybe it was a domestic bird. I opened up the box to find this fledgling robin. We immediately set to digging in the backyard to find some fresh worms, and Catybug enjoyed mothering this little fella until dark, when we sent him on his way (with a very full belly). Robins stay with their babies until they can fly, which he can, but he wasn’t doing so well in the hunting for food department.

    Pretty calm around us, he just made himself comfortable on the concrete and demanded his dinner.

    In anything other than news, I’ve been enjoying a week “off”. Off meaning I’m not working on things for other people, but I’m also not really going anywhere or doing anything spectacular. The girls and I had a nice day of shopping, another day of cleaning and organizing their room, and basically lounging, taking walks, and playing games. This is my summer “vacation”. heh! I’ll be painting next week, so you’ll see a sketch soon.

    How have you been?

    Oh how precious! I’m always amazed and amused at how big and pliable the little ones’ beaks are!

    I think that birdie is playing y’all. ;) why dig his own dinner with nice people like you around?

    great pictures as always. I’ve never seen that Lantana before… interesting.

    and I’m doing really well recovering from my camping trip. ;)

    I love all the photos!

    The sunflower…I wish I could have photographed the 7 footers at my friend’s house, but I missed out. I had to settle for a 3-4 footer instead. And it wasn’t nearly as beautiful as this one here.

    The Lantana…swoon! I love Lantana. The colors are always so vibrant and the waxy blooms always make me think they should taste like candy. (I’m weird, I know.)

    The bird? WOW! Very cool. My son and I both love these shots.

    Goth? LOL! She is gorgeous even with the dark eyes…

    Love your flowers. When are you going to plant mine? I’m still waiting…
