Branching Owlets

They are growing up. Soon they will be flying away. I have really enjoyed them. I will miss seeing them when they go.

And of course what would a post be without the Princess?
Here she is on my new butterfly bench. Her Mom bought her the butterfly dress. I thought it was a good time to take a picture!
She didn't want to smile for the camera today so we have this awesome back shot.(-:
 Here is a picture of the front of the dress. Still no smile for me.

Yellow Finches

They love their new feeder. A friend got it for me. I always wanted to try a feeder instead of the old white sock feeder but never have until now. They seem to really love it. They are lined up waiting to get to it!(-:

The last two pictures I took through the window screen so I didn't scare them away.

Another Owlet Picture

So sweet to see them each day. They are living in a huge pine tree near the house. I love them!

Princess Time

I had a great week with my Princess. She makes my days so awesome. Running around now and investigating things. She has quite the personality. Very funny. Always making me laugh.
I managed to get her to sit for a minute and take a few pictures this week. Here is what we got.
This was yesterday. In the new butterfly chair...

More Owlet Pictures

They are growing fast. The Princess and I went outside to see if they were looking in our direction this afternoon and they were. I went and grabbed the camera and got these nice pictures.

Garden Boating

You did read that right.
I am playing with the idea of adding a boat, or in my case, half a boat or less to my beach garden. This is a regular boat.
Old and useless for a lake adventure but perfect for a point of interest/yard art item.
It will entail a lot of work to get it cut in half and moved to the area I want it to be in, but what the heck.
It also has a handy little "cabin" storage area. What more could I ask for?
The price is right and I have the backhoe to help with moving and placing, so it may be a possibility this Fall.
I would wait because I don't want to destroy the whole area right now. Everything is blooming and beautiful. The fun part is I can have lights inside the "cabin" of the boat and the lights on the boat itself can light up at dark. With the help of solar lights of course(-:
Doesn't this sound fun? I know it's a quirky idea but I am a tad bit on the quirky side as you already know. Stay tuned. I will go see the boat tomorrow and decide. SO excited I can hardly wait!!!!!!!!

We had rain on Easter and yesterday it poured all day. Almost 2 inches here. There was snow in the mountains and over all it felt like December. It was awesome! I hope we can get more rain this week. It is very much needed.
The Easter Bunny stopped by our house and dropped off a few things for the Princess. One cute little Adirondack chair, a stuffed bunny, a few books, clothes and some bunny ears.
Looks like she is all set for a while.
She hasn't been feeling well these last few days. She has new teeth trying to poke through. She is a trooper just a bit fussy through the whole teething process.
