Oh what a beautiful morning

Honestly, it was all I could to to keep from bursting out in song as I walked around the yard this morning.  The sun is shining and it's a perfect day.  I took a brief video of Jody playing after she got her belly full; One of the best things about having a baby animal of any kind around is watching them having fun.





I consider Jody part of my mother's day package of gifts from Cliff, by the way.  I'm still enjoying the Crimson King maple tree he got me last year... a gift that keeps on giving. 


See, there in the distance?  It's a good-sized tree, considering we only got it a year ago.  


The trunk lists to the right a little, but that doesn't bother me.  


We had a nice motorcycle ride to Sedalia yesterday and our catfishing neighbor brought us a gallon freezer bag of catfish.  So all in all, it's a great day to be alive.


I've found out robins are the culprits who have destroyed my little tomato plants by eating the leaves off them.  Here's something funny:  I have a woodpecker with a sweet tooth; he's indulging in the nectar in the hummingbird feeder!

But then, you are a little on the right side yourself :-). Those trees become quite beautiful in adulthood.
Happy Mother's Day, Donna.

Never seen a woodpecker at a hummingbird feeder. Just the thought of a woodpecker all jacked up on sugar gives me the giggles.

You can tell just how beautiful the day was from your photos. The calf has such a nice pen to run and play in. So cute! The trees look well loved and cared for.

Robins? I always think of them as harmless birds. I want a nice day!!(sick of this rain)

A belated HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to you. It sounds like you had a glorious day. Jody is a frisky little thing, isn't she? Really sweet.

Thats an interesting tidbit. I've never seen a woodpecker at a hummingbird feeder.

Glad you had such a beautiful day, we did here too. Nice enough to go outside after Mother's Day lunch and play kick ball with the kids. Today I am so lame I can hardly move and I have to go down to the church and weed the garden! That'll teach me to act like a kid but boy it was fun!
