I usually have Safflower seed in my feeders.
It's less expensive and the squirrels aren't fond of it. 

I thought I'd give the birdies a treat and I bought some
Sunflower Hearts.
It didn't take two days until Sir Squirrel found it.
The white seeds are Safflower.

I was sitting in my living room yesterday 
and this bird caught my attention.
I have never seen one around here before..
Pardon the picture quality but I had to be fast!!
It is a Rose Breasted Grosbeak.

 Happy weekend !!

Several days ago , I stripped the bed and did some wash.
Max did a lot of pacing until I made the bed.
After all, 
it was a cloudy day and his sunny spots weren't available.
It was bath time to be followed by a "cat nap"
and he needed "his" bed.

"Ah, much better."

Later that day...
"Whatcha wanna watch , Mom?"

"Yeah, I know...nothing worthwhile on."

What a life !
Can't find the remote?? Check Max first !'

It has been flirting with us but I think Spring has finally arrived.
If your eyes itch and you are sneezing a bit,
it could be because of the pollen that came with it.
It was windy today so the air was full of it.

Welcome color is appearing as buds are beginning to pop!

There are a lot of nesting crows around this year.
I can't say that I'm too thrilled about that. 

Spring time also brings construction.
There are a lot of the new residents adding sun rooms
 to their cottages..carports too.

I would love to have a sun room but there is an oil pipeline
running thru my backyard with a right of way.
Saves me a lot of money.... 

Have a nice weekend.
