Wild Bird Wednesday – Mockingbird – Feeding the wee ones


There’s a couple of mockingbirds that are nesting in the edge of the woods. We watch them hunt and fly back to the woods to feed their wee ones. I was fortunate to get a photo of this one with it’s prey in it’s mouth as it rested in top of one of my Rose of Sharon bushes.
A pretty good photo to start the month with for a wild-bird Wednesday!

Wishing you all a pleasant June!

WIP – Sunburst Granny Squares


I’ve made 5 blankets/throws using the “sunburst granny square”.
I’m working on a 6th sunburst blanket right now.
I’ve got my 72 squares ready for next color.
I wonder if, after this blanket, I’ll make another
one with this pattern. 🙂

Wishing you all happy crafting!

Wildlife Wednesday – Female Baby 5 Line Skink

There’s a few of these wee beneficial babies using our back porch as a playground. They’re so charming and so very hard to get a photo of because they’re so fast.
I’m glad this wee-one stopped for a moment while close to a nail-head. The nail-head might help to give some idea of the small size of this female baby skink.

Wishing you all a charming Wednesday!

WildLife Wednesday – The Guilt Feeder

We decided not to hang hummingbird feeders up this year. Then, the other day, whilst we sat on the back porch enjoying a nice early evening breeze, a female Ruby Throated hummingbird flew in and hovered in the exact spot that we hung the feeders in years past.
Seeing the angelic beauty searching for food, made us feel guilty that we hadn’t hung a feeder out yet. So, we went in the house and got the feeder out of storage. My husband fixed a batch of sugar water and then filled the feeder. We went outside and he hung it up. It didn’t take the hummingbird but a few minutes to be on it feeding.
In the following days, there were more hummers visiting the feeders. They buzz and chitter and tease each other. They’re such fun to watch. It’s also fun to see how the feeder looks at different angles; the first photo is my view sitting on the porch looking up at the sky, this second feeder photo is my view of the same feeder from my kitchen window.

Wishing you all an angelic Wednesday!
