Last week we had some brief but heavy downpours 
with a little thunder thrown in.

I was playing with some camera settings.....

Speaking of showers..
This is often what I see when I get out of the shower.
Sound asleep.

Uptight, she is not.

This Weeping Cherry is outside my dining room window.
I'm sure you've seen it many times.

As you can see, it is loaded with buds.

The Finches already are systematically removing them.
They suck the nectar out of them and drop them on the ground.

I never get to see this tree in full blossom.
They are all over the ground.
I guess the three feeders out there aren't enough.

Yes, YOU !!

"My new fun!!"
(If I'm doing something, she has to be in the middle of it, 
even if it's cleaning out her litter box.)

"Rolling around in my litter box..."

"Feels so good"..  (I guess)

I put the lid back on and left her there...
She didn't stay long and only does this 
when I am cleaning out her litter box.
Helpful Hatti !!
"Did I help?"

Something has her attention.

Probably squirrels.
Don't you just love the way she has her little butt
 parked on my CD cabinet?
"Yes, you!"

She's not fat..she's had two litters and needs a tummy tuck.

I hope your weekend is fun filled...

I walked by my living room window yesterday 
and there he was just sitting on my porch railing.

Fortunately for me, he stays around awhile.
( That orange stake is a snow boundary..recently useful.)
These pictures were taken thru blinds and a window.
Sorry for the glare....

He was only about four feet away from me.
I'm glad Zoey didn't see him..he would have been gone.

We have seen piles of feathers here and there on our walks.
This morning he was on someones porch.
I guess we should name him..
He's smaller than another we often see ..
This one may be the female. 
This one also doesn't have the colors in it's beak
that the larger one has.

During the night Saturday,
we had a few inches of "clean up" snow.

Our recent snowfall was at that dirty, pretty ugly stage.
Probably more than half of it was gone.

I love the branches when they look as if
someone had sprinkled them with powdered sugar.

This look is short lived.

 Two hours later the branches were bare.

It was beautiful while it lasted.
Have a happy week.

Not a record but close enough for me!!
It will be around all this's too cold to melt.
Maybe this weekend ?

My Weeping Cherry was and is full of birds waiting their turns
at the feeders.

I think most of these are Mourning Doves roosting in the trees
across my back yard.

Zoey spent all day with her chin resting on the windowsill
 watching birdies.

Lazy Kitty....

I haven't seen a Mocking Bird for awhile...
I know they are Northern residents but
they have been pretty scarce til now.

Happy St Paddy's Day !!
