Assorted pictures

I'm glad I don't have to have a theme to each entry; I blog the same way I plant flowers, a little bit of this and that all mixed up.  I know my flowerbeds drive a lot of gardeners crazy.  I'm not the type to grovel and beg and ask my readers what sort of stuff they want to read here; to quote Rick Nelson, "You can't please everyone, so you gotta please yourself."  This time you're going to get some totally unrelated photos... not photoshopped, of course; because I'm too lazy for that.

Every once in awhile a hummingbird ends up in our garage.  They're liable to buzz around for hours before they find their way out.  Can you see him up there in the center, his busy little wings a blur?

This was taken Tuesday, a rare sunny day.  I was busy washing lettuce from the garden, and Iris kept bringing her squeaky toy over in hopes I'd play with her.  Unfortunately, that's the day Cliff got the stomach virus, so I appreciated the wilted lettuce all by myself.  Oh, Cliff ate some; he just didn't keep it down long.

There's a trundle bed right behind my chair here at the computer desk.  Iris somehow manages to get most of her body under there, a remarkable thing when you realize there's very little "underneath" to this bed; the second bed is under it.

I got a new pole on which to hang feeders and put it where Cliff and I can see it from our recliners.  When the orioles had to come to the porch to eat, the only way you could see them was to sneak slowly over to the door and hope they didn't see you.  Now we can watch them easily.   Now they won't be pooping on the chair on the porch.  You can click on this picture to make it larger.  There's a female on the hummingbird feeder and a male admiring the slice of orange at the oriole feeder.

Good idea to put the feeders where you can see them. I know there has been many times I've gone to the door to see ours but they fly away.

I see that small hummer in his garage. I like where you put that feeder. Helen

It's the simple things that sometimes give the most pleasure. :)
