This morning I stepped out on the back porch after my morning shower. Birds immediately took flight in every direction. I heard the melody of all their different songs. I love their music.
I saw that there is one lone pink rose that bloomed after some of the other things died back and made way for it to see the sun.
The female cardinal is blending in well with the colors of fall. I saw her male counterpart, but he flew away before I could get a shot. He won’t be far from her for long.
A robin was on the roof next door. This seems to be a good landing spot for them. Look at the mourning dove…
When the mourning doves take flight, they lumber along slowly at first. I guess because they’re kind of big. Then they get their groove on and fly just like the rest.
Then there’s this little guy. Watch as he tentatively approaches the birdhouse.
And then there’s the squirrels that are busily digging the dirt to hide their nuts.
They have been out in the front garden next to the house. Charlie sits on the top of the couch, intensely following their movements. His body is quivering as he watches their every move.
This particular squirrel raced across the fence, over my house, into the trees, and onto the roof of the house next door. Little acrobats is what they are!
I’ll be back later this afternoon with Tweak It Tuesday.
