Monday Madness!


Hi Y’all!

Yesterday was Sunday and in the afternoon the Humans watched basketball.  They kept saying “what great games!”  I felt totally ignored, although my Human took me outside to play.  I was hoping for a nice long walk, but the wind and pollen was just too much for her and Papa.  The pollen actually obscures the sun enough to make the day look hazy. 

Here is a picture of some dandelions taken several days ago on a walk.


This next picture is of the Paulownia trees with what I think is Sago Palmetto trees growing beneath.  

The next picture is reflections.  The Egret has spotted his supper, but the evening light causes interesting and confusing reflections of the tree trunks and reeds in addition to the bird’s reflection on the water. 

There have been hundreds of Egrets flocking together, but they have been moving from spot to spot so quickly and are so shy of Humans it has been almost impossible to get any pictures.  Egrets can perch in trees and this time of year many have already paired as shown in this next picture.  Notice the long black legs and the claw like feet grasping the branches far beneath the body of the bird.

Today, I’ll leave you with this picture of the wisteria flower. 

Y’all come back now.  I have some exciting news! 



  1. Love the beautiful spring pictures. I used to have a sago palmette houseplant. It was really small, but I think they are some of the coolest palms around.

    Hope you have a great day!

  2. Beautiful springy photos! I love wisteria and do wish we had some around - the smell is so amazing! -Tammy

  3. You have amazing nature around you. You and your parents are very lucky. :)

  4. Did your humans watch out Ohio State Buckeyes?


  5. Those paulownia trees are beautiful. I've never seen them before. We have egrets here, too, and they'll let me get fairly close; just neve close enough to photograph!!

  6. Great pics, my friend! Can't wait to hear your news! I'll be back!

  7. Beautiful pictures! Those trees look so neat.

  8. Hi Hawk! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love the egret photos - we bird watch in my family! Adn wisteria is one of my mom's favorite flowers!

  9. Outstanding pictures! They sure make spring seem a reality, rather than just a dream!
