A relaxing day

Friday, September 06, 2013

I was sitting at my computer, when it dawned on me that I kept hearing a Helicopter hovering. I went outside, and there it was. It had a long line attached so it must have been delivering parts to a new car wash that will opening up soon not far from us.

While I was outside, I took pictures of my beautiful birds. A House Finch was sitting on the wire above the Sunflowers. I was excited to see this one. It is multi-colored. 3 yrs. ago, two Finches showed up with this coloring. Last year there were 4 of them, and this looks to be a young Finch, so more babies.
Woo Hoo.

There were House Finches helping themselves to Sunflower seeds.

Henley the Hero was enjoying the morning as well.

I told Munchie he is getting a hair cut. That wasn't music to his ears.

One of my Roses



Have a great day!

    That head-on shot of Henley is my favourite one yet. He's gorgeous! And Munchie is too cute . . . it always makes me laugh when dogs stick their tongues out!

    Looks like the sunflowers are nearly at their end, such a sad time of the year Jeanne.

Have a good week

    Henley, just love that expression. Munchie will feel so much better after a trim. Your sunflowers are still beautiful. Take care another hot one.

    That second bird eating the sunflower seeds, looks to have blisters on his head. Was it burned in the fire??? Or is that normal and I am seeing things?

Henley has an adorable face, well so does Munchie, I am just attracted to large breed dogs. Munch will appreciate the cut though with this heat, I am thinking. Although if your two are anything like my Kitty and Puddy, well they are sound asleep in the air conditioning sacked out for the afternoon.

Always love your pics. Thanks! You blessed my day.

Gotta say that helicopter looks scary carrying that long pole.

    Lucy can sympathize with Munchie, only toenail trims and baths are worse!

Your bird pictures are so nice, really enjoy seeing the up-close coloring...

I hope you enjoy your weekend!

    Your pictures are so great. Henley always looks happy and I'll bet Munchie will feel better after a haircut. Your roses look great. My roses have passed away. Will get another batch of blooms when we get cool weather. Hope you have a super weekend. Hugs, Nancy
