i can has seeds too???

Not that there's much I could do to stop them ;-). What a perfect place to hang out!

And, even though Carlos and Donna are still trying to get on their vacation after Molly's first successful clutch, we do get some peeks into her second clutch from time to time. There are now 4 eggs in the owl box, and Carlos is asking for guesses as to how many she might have this time around. I'll say six, since I know nothing about what the possibilities are, and I think that six is plenty anyway. You can watch the latest recorded video of Carlos speaking...go to the 19 minute point if you want to see Molly and her eggs...http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/8301189

a smattering of images...

I set up a new bird feeder today. We haven't had one up in a while, but I plan to make up for that now. Last week, my neighbors had a crew come in and take down all of their trees and shrubs so that they can redo their landscaping. It was quite a shock for all of us, since our neighbors are very uncommunicative, and we had no warning and no information about what they were doing except for what I could find out from the work crew. It's pretty crummy (those trees were quite old and very healthy)...but in response, I am giving back to the birds for what they (and we) have lost...





Some of those bird photos were taken by my son Michael. He also photographed this chipmunk in another neighbor's yard...



And here's a bit of what we have growing in the garden...

heat wave...

Third day of @ 100 degree heat...what a year of weather this is turning out to be!

Does he look a bit tired?
Maybe just confused as to what to do.
He did jump right up when he heard two chipmunks chasing each other, but then found another spot to lie down in.
The sun seems to be good for the flowers though...


We're supposed to cool down to the low 90's tomorrow with some thunder showers. I'm actually looking forward to 90's!
