Uncle Melvin's pretty garden!!!

I love to look for Uncle Melvin in the morning's when I leave for work. You can usually find him this time of the year in the middle of a row in his garden! I love these big o' squash blooms & his onions look like baseballs in the dirt!

Look what a found in my rose bush!!

I just squealed very loudly when I was prowling around in my
back flowerbed & ran up on this bird nest! I doesn't even look real!!
~~FYI, oh FYI~~~I'm really thinking it's a Cardinals nest now!!! oh me!!!
I just have to keep my nosey self away from it so I won't get my eyes pecked out!!

Helen's showing off her flowers... ;-)

I've told moma on a couple of occasions that I'm gona "transplant" her hot pink calla lilies, I mean from her flowerbed to mine! She let me know right fast like that wouldn't be wise thing to do! Since I got behind on my blogging she has also celebtated a birthday on May 17th!!

Decoration 2009

~Everyone was able to come in last weekend for decoration where Jeff's daddy is buried. You can also see a couple little rascals who tried to smell some of the artificial flowers & who got in trouble for digging in a bird nest they ran across!

~we had a air & bird show !!

We are not to far from hwy 75 & 168 so it put us in a pretty good view of the airshow that was going on a couple weekends ago. We could hear everything real good & I just catch the planes real good. While I was out running around the yard Jeff pointed out our buddy was back so I could catch him a little better than than the planes. Red headed woodpecker! Who'd thunk it?

I've got to get caught up in my blogging!

We had some company Sat. eve. & for a little bit on Sun. morning Jeff & Doc got in alot of necessary fishingtime, they were catching them as fast as they could reel them in! Doc stayed very busy cleaning a good mess of them also!

~Little Smarty's!!!!

~Well, you can see in the top picture the little pair of birds have been trying to claim a post under our porch for their new home. After several attempts with moth balls which they nicely rolled them off outta their way! So, I had a "IDEA" ! I took a rubber snake I had on hand from a previous adventure & stretched him out from corner to corner, Yea, that was gonna fix it! I had out smarted them little birds after all! I go by the door every bit of 20 min's later & she's using the dang snake as a PERCH!!!!!!!!! So i gave up & let them little determined birds just carry on with their business! I just hope they don't mess up our porch & leave it like they found it! I'll keep you posted....... that is the loving couple at the top of my blog......Heckle and Jeckle~
