Showing posts from August, 2018


Oh my the month of August has zoomed by.   It was a busy time here. While I was bird watching the garden grew wild and tangled.  It definitely could use a bit of pruning. Those peaches that I thought would all be gone because  the resident groundhog was stealing them...well he left me plenty...the last of them ended up in these peach crumb muffins.  The neighbor's generous gift of zucchini made its way into pickles. Some sketching and plein air painting was done. Pastel painting and Watercolor sketch So much for those "lazy days of summer".  Maybe if I hurry I can find them. Looks like maybe these two did. Enjoy what is left of August before it zooms by.   See you in September. Hugs Debbie

Out of the Nest

Look who made it out of the nest! What a face?  Perhaps next year this one will return to build it's own nest...maybe close by.    Hope all of you will be back too.   Have a delightful week. Hugs Debbie

Another Nest

Can you believe it - another nest.   This one is located in a tree right above our deck. I may not have a "bird's eye" view but it certainly is much easier to keep tabs on the activities that are happening. Baby Robin There are two baby robins.  From time to time they will get brave and poke their little heads out.  Mama and Papa are busy bringing them a daily supply of worms. Perhaps I may get a chance to see these two fledglings take their first flight.   Hoping so! It seems like this summer has brought quite a bit of bird watching my way. Reading many of your comments it appears some of you are getting the same opportunities. So from one bird lover to another - have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie
