Such beauty

Sunday, August 18, 2013

So we should start off my blog with Princess Alice.

Let's not forget Sarge! (for you Cookie)


Trumpet Vine. It hangs over the fence. I love the color.

Birds in my yard. We have a lot of young birds in our yard, which is a good thing.

This little one was cute as can be. DH walked over by the shurb, watering plants. It kept peeking down, watching what he was doing. Look at me, the back to DH.

Morning Doves. I think this one is young as well.

Golden Finches


I took a drive out to Leona Valley, and found Papa Hawk. He rarely lets me get close. I never got out of the car, and took my photos from the car window. 2 photos, then he took off lol.

Have a wonderful Sunday!!

    The young are now looking a bit scruffy as the feathers fall out. New feather for a new bird.

Thanks for stopping by my blog-glad you liked it! Now that would be some good pics-of the whales! Whale watching is on my list of things to do one day! If you can see that from the beach, that would be a special time!
Have a great day!! emoticon

    Dear "Princess" Alice!! Such an absolute lovely!!! And, of course, the most handsome Sarge!! I love seeing your canine family members!! The birds of your yard are sweet, too! And the flowers almost make me sneeze!! hehe Not really. But they are beautiful!!
Glad to see Papa hawk still about! Good idea taking pictures from inside the car! He may have been shot at through the years and is very good at taking much caution with humans!! Who knows, but being "camera shy" has been working for him so far!
Hope you cool down soon!!! Triple digits are just no fun for anybody!! Have a great day! Cuddles to all the critters!! (((HUGS)))

    Beauty for sure!

My husband says we had a hawk crash into our sliding doors yesterday! The hawk was stunned, but eventually flew off..I wish I'd have seen him up close. It was all over by the time I got there.

Have a great Sunday!

    Princess Alice and Sarge look very content! I missed Megs, though. Since we used to own a Border Collie, she the one I am partial to! The bird and flower pictures were beautiful, I thought the photo of the trumpet vine flower was very interesting! Very pretty shade of orange! emoticon for sharing the sights around your home!

    Well, you certainly made my morning and day Jeanne! Loved your whole blog, but the best part was a picture of my love boy, Sarge! What a pleasure to see him. Thanks for the pic!

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

    Each part of the country has its own kinds of beautiful birds. Here in my backyard, I see a lot ducks, ibises and white egrets. When I lived out west, I saw hawks and eagles. And you are right - Such Beauty!! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for sharing.
Love, Chelsea emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
