The mom Cardinal is still on her nest, I didn't scare her off. And I checked a few minutes ago, she has laid another egg, so now there are 3. You can see pix of 2 of the eggs on the post before this one. Also, the Eastern Phoebe nest on the porch ledge has 5 eggs in it. She's gotten used to me going in and out, and usually stays on the nest. I'm waiting anxiously to see the little ones peeking out of the nest.
It has gotten green outside, finally. I went out to check, my Hydrangias have died back to the roots and are putting out new shoots. Though I hated to see them that low, it is probably a good thing, because they had gotten really big.
Here are 2 shots from years past.
Anyway, I trimmed off the dead shoots, and
checked to see if more new ones were coming out, they are.
Then I went around to trim more on the old hedge stuff that we planted 30 years ago. Most are gone, but two keep hanging in there, scraggly as they are. I had searched, as birds do nest there, didn't see a thing, until I
I sure hope they return.
Then I'll get baby pix for you.
Oh, and here
is a shot of my new greenhouse,
LOL, it is an egg tray, if you
don't recognise it. I have 30
4 O'Clock seed in there,
the striped variety.
Hope they all come up.
I used these last year, and had wonderful
luck, and best of all, they were free!
A couple of handfuls of MG potting soil, and
throw seed in the cups, cover, and put the plastic top on, how simple is that.
The minute Mallory laid eyes on Daniel, she was intrigued. And Daniel felt the same. What she didn't know, he had been married once, and had a small boy that he was raising. One month after they met, he was offered a job in Texas, and they quickly decided to marry and head out. A big city girl transplanted into a varmit infested house in Moses Lake Texas, with a little boy who is very into exploring, andhusband trying to get a handle on his new job. It isn't exactly conducive to marital harmony. And even her sisters and mother don't have time to listen to her complain. Her husband's boss has lost his wife and stepson and everyone thinks they are buried on Firefly Island....wonder what will happen? Read the book.
I dived into this book, not sure what to expect, but after a few pages, I quickly was hooked. Lisa Wingate has a way of telling a story that is funny, and intriguing.
I was given a copy of this book to read and review. No other compensation was given. All opinions given here are my own, I'm not required to leave a positive review.
Today is our oldest grandson's birthday, and he turns into a teen. If I remember correctly, it was about this time of day, when he finally made his appearance. We love him dearly, and if you check further down in my blog, you'll find that he received his birthday present, a homemade Lap Steel Guitar, a few weeks early, so he could enjoy it while on Spring Break.
This morning, our phone rang, and it was to give us word that my husband's nephew had lost his oldest daughter this morning. It is never easy to lose a loved one, but everyone I've ever talked to, says losing a child, no matter their age, is one of the hardest things you'll ever deal with, in life. To top it off, Kenny, the father, had a heart attack last week, and hasn't been out of the hospital that long. And it has only been about 1 1/2 years since his wife passed away.
Please pray for the daughters of Mandy, her husban, for her sister, Tracy and her children, and for her father and grandfather, who will miss her so much. Pray for the whole family, as they go through the grieving process.
She will be greatly missed.
