Zoom...Zoom...















 When sitting on the beach deck...

Looking back at the cottage...

I love to ZOOM in on things...

Get closer...

And closer...

Man...

I LOVE my camera♥️

Gosh...

My dragon wing Begonia looks pretty awesome too!!

Hope you are all having a great day...

Getting warmer here...sunny...but I swear I heard some thunder in the distance...

Spent the day with Miss V...went to the $ store and bought her a bunch of stuff!!!

Stickers...coloring books....you know...the usual junk!!

Heading out to eat shortly...Greek..I think!!

How's that for poetry!!

    1. Hi Laurie....
      Don't put seed there in the winter...we usually only go every week or so...
      That would be sad if they got stuck!
      I have a few hanging feeders that I fill in the winter....

  2. Your pigeons are different to ours - I love the rosy blush on his chest, and your new header is lovely.

  3. Is it a dove of some sort? It reminds me of the Ground Barred Doves I've seen on holiday in the tropics.

  10. Hi Linda - I see you feed the birds in the summer, too. I'm never sure what to do when it comes to that. I don't know anyone around here that feeds in the summer and yet I think they must still have trouble finding enough food. It looks like quite the buffet she is enjoying. :).

    1. Hi Deb....
      Only at the cottage in the summer...
      The raccoons here and Red, were becoming a little too close for comfort!
      But out there...it is perfectly ok!

  15. That bird looks really cute close up, like he has a black button for an eye!

  16. Thought I commented... but seems to be lost. Doves are so lovely. They nested on my co-worker's windowsill several years in a row. Didn't seem bothered that they had a steady audience of onlookers. Great planter.
