It’s time for me to stop procrastinating I think. Weeks ago, Tamara of a Matter of Perspective nominated me for the WordPress Family Award.
1. Display the award logo on your blog. Check.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you. Check.
3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family.
4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them.
As to 3 and 4 – y’all know how I am about that. Each and every blog I read regularly is part of my blog world family, and most of you know who you are. There are blogs I read but don’t often comment on – you can attribute that to laziness I think, or a lack of time – but most often I hit that “like” button, if you have one. It goes like this: I have a really hard time singling out favorites, so if you want to play along – perhaps you have favorites that you’d like to mention – go for it! You are worthy, you all contribute, you all share words, opinions, thoughts. Some enlightening, some fun, some thoughtful. All of them have a value.
So Tamara, thank you once again.
Now a few pictures to share, maybe with some words. We’ll see what comes out of this brain this morning.
Yes, I know I’m a pretty bluebird. Every year we seem to have at least one pair of bluebirds that visit our yard. The first few years, they often did not get a house for nesting because the swallows seem to be more agressive, but then most of our neighborhood families have added nesting boxes to their yards, and we installed a couple more, so now the bluebirds are able to find a cozy spot to start their families.
This is a variety of hummingbird I’ve not had at my feeder before! It appeared she was drinking the nectar, but maybe she was just investigating to see what was in those little holes. We used to have more woodpeckers when I put suet out, but then I discovered the suet attracts the starlings. Unfortunately, the starlings create too many problems for the other birds, so that had to stop.
The other delivers a bite or two of food. The swallows have it down pat – crossing paths just outside the opening to the box. It takes both of them to deliver enough food to satisfy the voracious appetites of their young.
Ahha! Cat in the jungle. Twiggy does not venture out as much as she did a couple of years ago – I think she’s become more of a lazy cat who has figured out I will deliver food and she needn’t work too hard for it. Lily, on the other hand, comes to say hello periodically during the days, but spends most of her time on the hunt.
That’s it for today – I’ll go see now if I can be productive. In the meantime, have a day filled with enough!
