Monday Was for the Birds!

Hello! These pictures were actually taken Sunday. You know Sunday....One of those restful days where you can recharge, rejuvenate, and let your hair down... Yeah... Not so much here! We went to 8:00 church, then Tall Guy went out to start planting, then the girls had to go back to Sacred Heart because they were singing in the choir for First Communion, then after dropping them off, I helped TG load up the planted and sent him on his way, THEN I picked up the girls from church )changed dirty shirt!  Thank you very much graphite dust!), brought them home to change, and ran up to the great metropolis of Brook, Indiana to see my mom.

Now I have to start a new sentence because my awesome 70+ momma is recuperating from double knee replacement surgery. She ROCKS! We also think she gained back a bit of height since she WAS 4 feet 9 1/2 inches tall at her tallest! So right before we left to go up there, I chatted with Dad, and he asked me to bring up my camera because a large number of very cool birds were taking up residence around their feeders. Here they are in all their beautiful color!

 Mr. GrossBeak

Mr. and Mrs. Purple Finch (YES, They are more red than purple: NO!  I dont' know why they are called purple finches!)

Mr(s). Finch

One of these days, I am going to have these lovely birds hanging out at my feeders!  Just wait until I finish landscaping outside our new addition....

New Addition???  Yep!  I am just about ready to share with you all the craziness we went through during the very long and COLD winter!  Coming up next:  our new addition!

  1. You have some great bird captures here! Your mom does rock if she had double knee replacement. I hope her recovery goes well!
