BIts & Bobs From My Week.......

The Turkey is resting...
All crispy and golden...under foil and towels...
To keep it warm 'til Dinner...
Veggies are all in their prospective vessels...
Ready to boil or roast...
Apple Strawberry Blueberry Raspberry Blackberry pie...
Is baked and at the ready...

Just waiting for my favorite guests to arrive...

Thought I would share a few pics from my week...

2. Male Sparrow...
3. Bought myself a new Violet...
4. Also...a Peachy Begonia
5. The Finches are plentiful...
6. Made my first Easter Tree...inspired by Deb at "just Cats"..hers is my sidebar
7. Guess who else loves my bananna/berry cake with fruit and yogurt?
8. Nuthatch....Mr Busy...very hard to photograph...
9. Not Red...but looks suspiciously related!
10. Sunset thru the White Pines...
11. SO...I bought some Butter Tarts...only ate 1...honest! aren't they magnificent?

      She loved the Bear....plopped her right into her doll stroller, and off she went!

  5. I should try a "bits and bobs" post. (Ooo! Almost wrote "boobs" there by mistake... Gotta be careful!)

    The finches are highly conspicuous - much more so than anything we have in UK.
