Birds On The Run

 

The birds have flown the coop, or should I say they have flown the nest?  Or the wreath?

 Birds built a nest inside the wreath on the back porch.

One of my five year old twin grandsons discovered it.

He even told me it had five white eggs inside.

 I thought it was a story of his very keen imagination but it wasn't. It was true.

The birdies hatched and made lots of noise singing.

They turned out to be totally adorable.

 They were little feather bundles that opened wide their orange beaks to get food from their Mommy. 

They also, well, uhhhhh, how can one say this politely?  

They pooped a lot and when I say a lot, I mean it.

They finally left and, in a way, I'm not too sad. 

The back porch will be a lot cleaner now. 

Like the song says,  "Bye, Bye Birdie."

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE KIND OF BIRD?

Wishing You a Beautful Sunday

 Hope you have a lovely Sunday!

Take time to really look around you.

You'll be surprised at the immense amount of beautiful things you might see and otherwise miss.

Just getting out of the car to go to the supermarket, the pink-blossomed beauty, shown in this this post, caught my eye.

The car was parked right near it.

It was so stunning.

Happy Sunday, dear blog peeps!

 

 CAN YOU TELL US ONE BEAUTIFUL THING YOU SEE RIGHT NOW?

A Bowling Ball Happy Face for the Yard

When it comes to projects around the house and yard, it's trial and error whether something works or not.

A few years ago, after reading an article on turning bowling balls into art, I hunted thrift shops in search of old bowling balls.

A few were found.

 They were  covered with those round pieces of colored glass which took a long time and tons of patience.

Regarding of what was used to stick them on, many of them fell off, one by one.

It was frustrating so eventually the project was considered a bust and abandoned.

But one bowling ball painted as a happy face remained.

It's been decorating the yard near the bird bath every spring since then and it never fails to bring smiles.

WHAT ARE SOME THINGS YOU HAVE OUTSIDE YOUR LIVING SPACE TO MAKE YOU SMILE?
