Wordless Wednesday: This & That

Summer brings so many unexpected joys! Soak them all in and enjoy the little things in life that make you so happy!

NIKITA OUTSIDE

Nikita enjoying a nice warm evening out on the lawn with us watching the traffic.

NIKITA SEES ANOTHER DOG

Nikita saw “another doggie”.

BELLA OUTSIDE

Bella just “chills” when she is outside. Her face says it all. “What’s Up?”

BLUE HYDRANGIA1

Blue Hydrangea, oh so beautiful! I want these too! Look at all those buds!

HYDRANGEA PISTACHIO1

Pistachio Hydrangea! We saw this at Lowes and I want it so badly!

DRAGON SHADOW

Woke up the other morning and saw one of the dog toys sitting in the bathroom. I loved how the shadow of the alligator reflects on the side of the bathtub.

FROGGY ON NETTING

Our froggy made it to the backyard and somehow he crawled up onto the netting we have over our flower garden. He is so talented that he could join the circus!

It’s the little things in life that matter the most.

Say Hello To My Little Friends

It’s amazing some days when you head out into your yard and run across some unexpected new friends. And, these friends were welcomed!

I had to remove the bricks we had around the front flower bed because they got moved over the winter, possibly by hitting them with the snow blower, and when I pulled out all the bricks, I found a frog living in the muck under the bricks. He was not happy that I disturbed his little home, but I put him back in his home when I was done.

FROGGYS HOME

Fixing the bricks & finding our new friend, Froggy.

FROG 5-7-14

It’s amazing on how froggy can twist his leg around like that!

FROG CLOSEUP 5-7-14

Look at that face!

Then yesterday, my neighbor Steve showed me a little Robin’s nest he had in his bushes with three baby Robins in it. They were so adorable with their little fuzzy heads and pink bellies. I don’t think they had opened their eyes yet as they looked really young still. Ah, the beauty of nature is so fascinating. These are welcomed friends because they do no harm to our bushes or plants. (Thanks for the heads up Steve as I got some beautiful photographs!)

BABY ROBINS1

Click on the photo to enlarge this, and you can see the little tuffs of fuzz on their heads!

BABY ROBINS2

This little guy opened his beak up, as he probably thought I was bringing him some worms!

BABY ROBINS3

Just think, they will leave the nest soon and will be pulling their own worms out of the ground.

Nature is beautiful, isn’t it?
