Delightful Day

Suze and I woke up to this guy/gal and twin and mom munching on our lawn!

Oh.oh.. someone left the gate open and is lucky to still have tomatoes!

After a leisurely breakfast we made our way to Barr Settlement to stalk some warblers.  We saw Blue-headed Vireo, Red-eyed Vireo, Black-throated Green,Black and White Warbler, Magnolia, Alder Flycatcher, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow Warbler, Eagles, Sharp-shinned Hawk, many Ravens, Flickers, Blue-Jays, Mourning Doves. Great outing!

We had a tailgate lunch and meandered home.

Fungus on a path that produced no birds so we started taking pics of other “stuff”.

And it starts!!

I had a craft misstep this afternoon which cannot be discussed because it involves Christmas and certain people who read this blog!  Working on Plan B! Grrrrr!

Had a simple supper of pesto(vegan slip up #1) pasta and side salad of fresh garden tomatoes with fresh basil, feta (vegan slip up #2) and balsamic.

I went for a brisk walk after supper as birding is anything but brisk but then again I took my camera with me so my brisk walk is a bit of a misnomer! I went like a bat out of h…. between shots.. does that count?

On my walk to the lake (Grand Lake) I am  cheered by this yard with the little bush that always has the twinkle lights on.

My fall Clematis enjoying the last rays of sun for today.

DH is back from the camp and has gone to a football game at SMU. Such manly activities! 🙂

Better get back to my company before she feels deserted…. probably a welcome break for her! 🙂

Pura Vida

    I love Angelica. They look like little nests. I didn’t know that’s what they are called. Thank you!

    I always thought this was Queen Anne’s Lace, or Daucus carota. Now I have to do some research! Whatever the name, I love them too.
